What a question to stir up a Friday? Picture our office with connecting cubicles (no sound proofing). Here are some of my co-worker’s unproductive and annoying things that occur on a daily basis; 1. Personal phone calls coming in on a very loud cell phone with a barking dog as a ring among other ring tones. 2. Yelling over the cubicles instead of getting up and walking over to the person. 3. Upon entering the office for the work day, immediately goes to the bosses office and fills her in on everything personal that occurred over night, since she left work the day before. 4. So what time do you start work, no one knows. 5. Saying they will complete some request and never does it and never says they aren’t going to do it (empty promises) 6. “Not my job” 7. Subordinates eating lunch with the boss in the bosses office (everyone else is in their cubicle) 8. Whispering vice going into an office to discuss “secrets” 9. Prima donnas 10. I could go on but I won’t
