5 MOST ANNOYING HABITS TO AVOID AT WORK
DROPPING THE F- BOMB You’re not in college anymore, so avoid swearing indiscriminately. Far from making you sound confident or assertive, it only makes people want to avoid talking to you. CONSTANT WHINING The office is not your personal diary or blog. Don’t burden colleagues with how your boss hates you, how underpaid you are or how you can’t stand the food in the cafeteria. TALKING TOO LOUDLY Being loud when everyone is trying to concentrate is plain obnoxious. Loud co- workers are irritants and are percieved to be invading private space. Lower your volume. RUMOUR MONGERING Don’t start or circulate rumours about your fellow employees, no matter how much you hate them. There are other ways of getting back. Keep things professional. BEING MESSY Clean up your act. It’s never pleasant to have to deal with body odour or messy eaters. Make sure lunch is not a disruption for others around you. Whatever you do, always flush.
