Our colleagues’ bad moods annoy us the most, a recent survey shows. Nearly 37 per cent of British office workers said their grumpy colleagues deserved to be in the top list of annoyances in the office.
Slightly less, 36 per cent of respondents, thought that the second most irritating thing is slow computers, whilst the list of the biggest office irritants also included excessive office gossip, management speak, and colleagues that tend to speak loudly on their phones.
British workers also pointed out too many health and safety intrusions, people being late or skipping meetings, office temperature being too high or too low, team members who do not leave a clean kitchen area after using it, as well as poor washroom etiquette.
The survey was carried out by Opinium Research.
