    Smelly people

  2. SKL says:

    People who think they are genetically more important than anyone else.

  3. Jason says:

    People who ask stupid questions! And yes there are such questions, especially if you ask them more than once.

  4. Phyllis says:

    Gossipy, self-centered people who feel the need to butt into EVERYTHING!!!

  5. Just a Mom says:

    People who steal pens off my desk, which is why I chew on my pens!

    Well, it’s been a while, but I would say the guy who always has his nose in your business. The one who is always second-guessing what you’re doing, both professionally and personally, and who stoops so low as to presume to tell people that the reason you’re *really* out of work for a couple days isn’t a nasty bout with the flu but actually because you were pregnant and had a miscarriage!

    I’m going with people using stuff in the fridge like it’s theirs. The teachers I worked with at MIS were awful. One day we were done with our shift and went to eat and this teacher was eating m friend Becky’s lunch right out of her bowl! Then she denied it and said she “thought it was hers. Her’s looked just like that.” Seriously?

    When I worked in the grocery store in Emerson, Lisa and I would cross the border and buy our creamer and the owner and managers ALWAYS used ours and it was so maddening. How do you tell your boss to leave “anything” alone?

    What DOESN’T irritate me?
    -Brown nosers who push others under the buss to get ahead.
    -Brown nosers who pretend they are so busy…letting you know repeatedly throughout the day by sighing continuously or just plain telling you…whilst they have enough time to take 1.25jr lunch break or cruise the net (when the boss isn’t looking of course).
    …I better just stop.
