Those 12 Annoying People At Work

It's easy to categorize the people you work with. And, after a while of working together, you come to an understanding of the way they function. Time after time, they just seem to be themselves. They come to be a representation of a certain kind of co-worker.

1. The one who’s never on time.

Some people just can't show up on time. Whether they're always running from one place to another or they simply can't keep track of time, working for this person or with this person can give you one thing for sure: a time crunch.


2. The one who can’t file paperwork correctly.

Some people just can't get the hang of things. Paperwork is pretty straight forward. How can one continuously mess up the same task?


3. The one who is ALWAYS looking for someone to cover their shift.

Odds are that you have at least one co-worker who is always looking for someone to come in and cover their shift. Maybe if you're lucky enough, you'll have a couple of those.


4. The one who eats Thanksgiving feast at their desk.

Some people really just love food. Their desk isn't just a place for work to get done, but it's also their buffet.


5. The one who thinks they’re your best friend.

It's cool to get along with the people you work with, but when they want to constantly be around you, it can be a problem. It's even awesome to be close with them, but when they're constantly clinging to you, it can get annoying.



6. The one who eavesdrops on your conversations.

Some people are too nosy for their own good, and sometimes you don't want people listening in on your business. Odds are that someone is going to listen in and offer their worthless two-cents, though.

7. The one who you’ve never spoken to but always looks angry.

This person looks, seems and is unapproachable in all respects.


8. The one who should've been fired by now.

They show up hungover and they don't do their job right, but they still are employed... somehow...


9. The one who stands at your desk, talking for hours when you just want them to be quiet.

Some people don't understand that your desk (or cubicle) isn't a therapist's office and that you aren't medically trained. What they don't realize is that you didn't major in psych or go to med school.


10. The one who’s constantly breaking things.

Some are accident-prone, others are just plain stupid. Whether it was planned or not, odds are that someone has a track record of bad luck.


11. The one who does nothing but talk about their relationship.

Mentioning that you have someone in your life is cool, but their name being in every single conversation is a bit excessive. Unless you're talking to a co-worker that has an unrequited crush on you, name-dropping is unnecessary. And no, I don't want the details.


12. The one who only got the job because they're related to someone.

I don't know about you, but for most of my life, favoritism was always based on who you knew. There are people who go out of their way to get their family members or close friends the job of interest. And, in a lot of cases, nepotism can come into play.

Everyone's been here. And, truthfully, it sucks. But in order to move on and get past something you need to allow yourself to feel it for what it is--all of the heartbreak and pain--and then you can start to take steps move on.

The Christmas season is coming to an end, but it's not too late to get some last-minute movies in! Unfortunately, this year didn't look like a typical Christmas. While we can't have any big Christmas parties or family gatherings, we can still celebrate at home! Christmas is the best time for nostalgia, and we could all use some warm and fuzzy feelings as we wrap up a tough year and enter a new one that hasn't been proven any calmer, either.

As a kid who grew up in the 2000s, I can think of some of my favorite staple Christmas movies. If you're looking for recommendations or just a walk down memory lane, check out the list below.

As we enter the new year, you might be looking for a great show to kick-off 2021. Look no further, I have the perfect recommendation. "The Wilds" was released on Amazon Prime last month and has been gaining traction steadily since then. This series of 10 one-hour episodes tells the stories of eight girls who find themselves on a deserted island after their plane crashed while they are on their way to a resort. Unlike other survival shows, there's a bit more to the story than what first meets the eye. This show is unique in characters, storytelling methods, and plot.

If you aren't convinced yet, allow me to provide you with a list of further persuasion.

Online classes and virtual reality in general have been the staple of 2020. One day in March, everything shut down and we all had to learn how to work, teach, study, do therapy, and take classes remotely without much preparation. So, it's been a roller-coaster experience, and definitely not what we expected.
