You spend more time with them than your own family. And, although some of them become firm friends, the majority of them f*ck you right off.
While publicly naming and shaming them for stealing your sandwich or replying to their 'reply all' with a choice few words that might get you fired is tempting - in reality you're more likely to bury it deep down and brew yourself some serious stressed vibes that will probably lead to a migraine/breakout/breakdown (delete as applicable).
So employees are taking to Twitter to vent their frustration, let off some steam and give us all a bit of a laugh in the meantime. Buckle up. Things are about to get seriously relatable.
1. Just hold it in.
Office etiquette: Don't whistle or sing along to the radio and I won't throw a stapler at your head.- L(assitude) (@lmwortho) April 4, 2017
2. Bottle that sh*t up.
The hardest part about being at a new job is not getting into arguments. A coworker will be like "im a flat-earther" and you just have to be like "cool so how was ur weekend"- Kody Audette (@kodeeezzzy) January 28, 2019
3. Push it deep down.
I'm in a Cold War with some stranger in my office bathroom over who can sit longest in a stall waiting for the other person to leave so they can finally shit. I loathe her, but dammit I respect her.- maggie mull (@infinitesimull) October 12, 2018
4. Can you feel your eye twitching?
What is the phone number to call if you have a coworker who keeps singing the baby shark song ?- Andrew Freiden (@AndrewNBC12) January 25, 2019
(It's @AnthonyNBC12 )
5. Sure you can. That's just what smiling with your eyes feels like.
Hell is having to be around a coworker who has the opposite sense of humor as you while he shows you shitty memes for 5 hours. I am in hell- Cameron (@Cameron_H93) January 26, 2019
6. You're only here for eight hours every goddamn day this week.
The hierarchy of jerk-ish workplace behavior is as follows...- CoreyRadio (@CoreyRadio) January 29, 2019
1. Stealing someone's lunch
2. Taking the last of the coffee and not making a new pot
3. Not resetting the timer on the microwave
If you do any of these things I hope you fall running full speed.
7. You can handle it.
I have a coworker who might not understand how email works because every time he sends me one he immediately gets up, walks the 15 yards from his office to mine, and says "I sent you an email." Then he tells me what the email he sent me says.- Melissa Mann (@PhantomRat) January 29, 2019
If I walk into the bathroom at work one more time to a coworker taking selfies or boomerangs in the mirror, I'm quitting my job.- Jennifer Bennett (@Jenniiiiiiferr) January 29, 2019
9. Retirement can't be too far off.
Overheard a coworker with a stuffy nose say "Do you like creamy cheeses?" and I immediately handed in my resignation.- matt prindle (@GriefBison) January 25, 2019
10. What?! The retirement age is 66?
Office etiquette question: person beside me has been sniffing constantly for an hour. Do I offer a tissue? Or just seethe until home time?- Jen Crothers (@jenofcroths) December 1, 2016
11. Okay. 40 years...
A good invisalign commercial would be me uncomfortably brushing my teeth/flossing in an office bathroom while in a nearby stall a man who is completely out of breath takes a shit.- ZacOyama (@ZacOyama) June 6, 2018
12. Cool, cool, cool.
You can't swipe left on a coworker's face no matter how annoying they are.- Jurisdoc (@jurisdoc741) January 27, 2019
13. Everything's fine.
