10 Annoying Work Habits That Can Get You Fired
My old Awful Coworker is guilty of all of these offenses and never got canned.
Let’s not forget the time she spent the majority of the work day giving herself a pedicure, which I had to later vacuum up myself(pictured above).
And I almost forgot about her volume issues, until I dug this one up.

10 Signs That You Should Quit Your Job

magforwomen:

 

We tend to spend 90% of our time at work. More than our families and friends, it is our jobs that become an integral part of our lives.  Read more about :  10 Signs That You Should Quit Your Job

I held the door open for a very rotund coworker today at the top of a stairwell as he was still climbing…

“Oh don’t wait for me…I’m slower than the second coming”

My ACW wouldn’t have understood this. She won’t eat food that isn’t covered in cheese or dressing. She also keeps salt packets in her desk.
"IT DON’T TASTE GOOD WITH NO SALT ON IT."

Happy And Healthy of the Day: McDonald’s announced today that it will begin adding fruits or vegetables to every Happy Meal.
The LA Times reports that apples will most often be served as the healthy side, but produce selection may vary depending on the branch location and time of year to include carrots, pineapple slices, raisins, and mandarin oranges.
In addition, the fast-food chain said it would lower the amount of sodium used in meal preparation, reduce the size of french fry holders from 2.4oz to 1.1, and eliminate its caramel-flavored apple dipping sauce.
According to the company’s press release, the changes are part of a “comprehensive plan” aimed at helping families “make nutrition-minded choices whether visiting McDonald’s or eating elsewhere.” 
“McDonald’s will always try to do the right thing, and we know we can help make a difference in our communities, McDonald’s USA president Jan Fields is quoted as saying. “The commitments we’re announcing today will guide the future evolution of our menu and marketing.”

Every time my coworker….

memoirsfrommyheart:

How to Handle Complicated Co-Workers

I should have kept a tally at my old job! We could have had a running Awful Coworker competition!

"Hav migrain. hav to stay home"
- text from my 60 year-old coworker regarding her absence.

Note: This is only the 17th day that she text/emailed/called out this year. Yes, since January 1st, 2011. (via aterriblethingtodo)

My awful coworker used to play music on her phone at work over the radio that was already playing. I never asked her to shut it off, because I knew it would end up like this.

Public Transportation Altercation of the Day: A lady en route to Williamsburg on the B62 is asked by the driver to turn off her “cell phone boombox” or use headphones.

Turns out public transportation patrons who inconsiderately blast music through their smartphone’s speaker aren’t very well-mannered. Who knew?

(NSFW, inconsiderate language.)

Really?

Co-worker: “Even if I got here at 8, I couldn’t leave at 4 because you leave at 4.”

Me: “Have you ever gotten here at 8?”

Co-worker: “No, but I wish I could leave at 4.”

Make-up & Body Grease Smears

friskylisp:

I occasionally cover for the receptionist at my workplace while she takes a break.  I’ve been doing this for the last few years with no problem.  However, a few weeks ago, a new receptionist was hired to fill the position left vacant by a very neat and clean woman.  Since then, the lobby desk, phone and computer have amassed make-up and body grease in every crevice imaginable.  The horrors that follow are evidence of her disgusting, oily residue.  

Make-up oil smeared all over the keyboard (this picture was taken after I wiped it down once):

The mirror sitting on her desk, smeared with grease:

Hair (a pube, right? It’s gotta be a pube) stuck in the keyboard:

The mouse is sticky, always.  Here you can see a grease glob on the left clicker:

The company’s switchboard directory, removed from its protective plastic folder and now smeared with her make-up grease:

When I sit down at her desk, I spend a few minutes cleaning everything with a Lysol wet cleaning wipe.  Because, what else can I do?  Seriously, what can be done about this oily gunk?
