Woman in the office asking stores for a new chair as her old one keeps "squeaking".

Women putting the heating on when it is 20 degrees outside.

Woman with big teeth licking them repeatedly and sounding like something out of Alien.

Imbecile who shares every single thought that comes into his head out loud.

Women who stamp when they walk, they're middle aged and still can't walk properly in heels yet insist on doing so.

Fella with severely bad BO.

I could go on.

Office speak. 'Close of play'. 'Workshops'. 'Thought showers'.

I hate it all

Just women?

me and one of the other girls have to have the windows wide open even in the height of winter cos the heating is always left on. the heat is stifling

last year on the hottest day of the year we opened one of the doors and some of the girls were saying they were cold. like ffs!

Yes, just women, 2 in particular, the rest are all "normal". These are the types that wear next to nothing in the winter and complain they are freezing. Fucking THICKS.

'Thought showers' --- that's a sign right there, I'd run a mile.

The fucker who sits beside me who asks me questions in a whisper about everything. I'm continually checking his work and I'm sick of him.

Actually, it's not so much the questions as it's the whispering that's getting to me. Speak up for fuck's sake, you're an adult.

My work place is ridiculous about signatures and signing in.

I clock in electronically with a fob thing, then I sign in at reception, I sign for a key, then I sign in on the floor where I work.

When I leave, all again in reverse. Waste of time and paper.

I hate auld biddies who only want to talk about funerals and weather.

The girl that used to sit opposite me was like that, she was really soflt spoken used to have to stand up and lean across the desk to try and hear and usually ended up walking around her side. She seemed incapable of raising her voice

there's a blade in here and she says 'really cold in here today. brrr' every single day. without fail. never doesn't say it.

it's usually boiling hot too and people are peeling clothes off.

it's just a tick at this stage. all in her fucking head.

People who repeatedly complain about work colleagues... Liked they're the smartest people in the room and the office would fall over if it wasn't for them.

It's the grown up equivalent of the fucking school yard.

It's fucking tedious.

There... I said it. You know who you are.

our wan always does a BRRR!! a big loud one. then she makes a big point of putting her hoodie on. and acts as if the rest of us are wankers for not offering to put the heat up further.

thing is, the office is always unbearably hot. the heat wont go up any further. but still she makes the same complaint, every day.

anyway i was going to list some stuff here but i'll just go with the 'all of it' option.

all of it is annoying. every single thing about it.

let's be honest here. it's fucking comical to see adults act the way that they do in an office.

I meant "they know who they are."

Plural.

It's utterly infuriating isn't it? If one of us doesn't get moved I can see myself snapping.
