Habits that annoy

Mar 10 2009 by Print This Article

Do your co-workers drive you crazy? Well, one of the things you may want to do is take a look at yourself before you run around accusing them of things. An article by Beverly West, "Top 10 Annoying Habits at Work, could help you re-assess your entire situation and realize that the cause of some of your problems could be you.

Are you always unprepared? Are you the guy who shows up to the client meeting unable to answer questions? Are you always scrambling for your papers before the big meeting?

Are you a control freak and unable to work in a team? Do you want to take over every aspect of a project?

Or, are you the opposite and unable to handle even the most basic task on your own? Do you feel you need manager approval for every little thing you do?

Are you the type who wakes up late every day and runs into work without showering? Do you, in fact, smell?

When you're sick do you insist on coming to work and coughing and sneezing on your co-workers?

Do you talk loud enough on the phone that co-workers four cubicles down can hear everything you say?

If you answered "yes" to any of the questions above or the others that West writes about, the problems at work may be coming from you and not those around you. In fact, the people who seem to bug you may just be reflecting their annoyance at you right back into your face.
