One of mine is perfume.  I can't stand when someone coats it on that a cloud surrounds them, that much scent gives me a migraine.  Another are ones that stand and talk to you constantly, and not getting the hint that you have work to do.

What are some of yours?  How do you handle it?

Kim, I work in a professional environment so I don't work with an immature crowd who scares people but I understand why you might frown on that - completely inappropriate....the no tp in the stall thing is definitely bad too.

People creeping up behind me at work and scaring the life out of me!  Why do people do that?  Think it's funny to turn the light out in the restroom if you are on the late night shift.  Using the last of the TP and not replacing it.

I agree, the shoulder massages are creepy especially since I am 23 and wear age appropriate dresses and skirts to work which can be a challenge when sitting. Other than that, my week was ok and now the weekend is here - yay!

Ewww, shoulder massages at work sound creepy to me. I'd probably end up more stressed from that than without getting touched by a coworker.

I hope you've had a relatively good week and are going to enjoy the weekend!

When a small group stands outside my office carrying on a social conversation, including laughing - very distracting. Also, how about the office Casanova who frequently stops by to visit and performs shoulder massages. Now I enjoy a good massage like most women but it is a little awkward at work.

I haven't had an issue with perfume, but there have been times when people who aren't working annoy me. I'm all for office fun, but there are times when I have something to do and am frustrated that others seem to have more free time than I do. There's not really anything that I've done about it, and it usually passes. I do realize I have my own less productive days at times, too.
