What is your work pet peeve?

I hate when people use "REPLY TO ALL" for emails that they should just send directly to the people involved.

  • when i worked, it was clients not coming on time/talking on their cell phones while i had my hands/tools in their hair, or other stylists' clients allowing their children to run amok in the salon/bathroom. funny how the very thing that made business successful was the very thing that caused irritation. go figure!

  • i HATE seeing dirty bathrooms when i go into work. I will go in and clean them. I also hate when i go out anywhere and the bathrooms are filthy. Its a big reflection on the management if you ask me. If i'm eating somewhere and the bathrooms are gross i will leave. ...ugh, shivers..just makes me think the employees have nasty hands. yuck.

  • Only one? Oh, alright. I'd have to go with people who take care of their personal grooming issues at their desk. I have a close work neighbor who clips her fingernails at her desk. I'm not talking about fixing a jagged nail either. It's a full blown, ten-finger clip job. At least I hope it's just her fingers. Gives me the heebie jeebies.

  • I hate reply to all too, or getting copied in things that have NOTHING to do with me lmao. Also when someone wants to chit chat but yet you see me with my earphones on and my ipod right next to me, hello get the hint I'm not in a chit chat mood lol.

  • When you tell someone you are busy or set your IM to "DO NOT DISTURB"... and they go right on ahead and distrub and bather on with zero regard for your workload.
