Where Would We Be Without Nasty Habits

I really hate the radio — morning DJs in particular — but I need to hear the traffic reports, right? And one station has been catching my attention lately, because they don’t try to be funny, they just chat amongst themselves (and crack each other up, which I like).

They often discuss magazine articles, and today they were talking about bad habits of people in offices. Number one was people who eat others’ food from the fridge, obviously (grrrr). One of the women said she made a recipe from the Three Dog Bakery cookbook (the Turkey Gobblers, I think) and left it in the fridge for the thief. Hee.

But there was one on the list that I’d never personally witnessed. Flossing your teeth with a paperclip. Let’s read that again, shall we? Flossing. Teeth. Paperclip.

Ew.

The guy who sits next to me (I need code names for my co-workers, but they just aren’t interesting enough to self-generate) has been known to cut his fingernails at his desk, which actually makes me gag a little. But I walked over to ask him a question last week, and he was digging ear wax out of his ears with a paperclip.

At work.

(I haven’t decided yet whether the paperclip or the “at work” is actually worse. Would it have been tolerable if he’d used a q-tip? I’m not sure. And now I’m ready to stop thinking about it.)

Note to self: Never accept more than one sheet of paper from said co-worker.

Barf.

    THANK YOU. This is one of my MAJOR pet peeves. I had one FEMALE coworker at my last job who regularly clipped her nails at her desk, and I was SO grossed out by this. I have also talked to the hubs about it - because he didn’t think it was a bad thing. WRONG. Granted, he and his buddies at work also used to have standard issue air freshener - because - well - they were men and a little less discrete than I would like. Yeah.

    Anyway - http://www.passiveaggressivenotes.com frequently deals with the lunch thief issue!
