15 Reasons Your Coworkers Are The Worst

You thought your college roommate was bad? Multiply that by 10.

15 Reasons Your Coworkers Are The Worst
Huffington Post

Many people are blessed with awesome coworkers, but some people aren't so lucky. Even if you love the people you work with, chances are they do things that grind your gearsmore than you'd care to admit. With all of the clashing personalities that come together in your office space, is it any wonder you want a drink after you get home from work?

1. They come in late every day, yet never get in trouble for it.

But God forbid traffic makes you five minutes late twice a year - you will NEVER hear the end of it.

2. They heat up stinky food and it lingers in the air all day long.

I know last night's shrimp scampi was SUPER delicious yesterday, but reheating garlic-laden seafood is, like, the biggest no-no in the history of work etiquette ever.

3. They talk really loudly on the phone, whether it's a business or personal call.

And then they laugh. And laugh. And laugh. Nothing's that funny!

4. They don't say "bless you" when you sneeze, or "thank you" when you say it to them.

Regardless of your religious beliefs, it's just common courtesy to acknowledge someone sneezing in the office. And it's common respect to say thanks when they acknowledge yours.

5. They don't say hello to you in the morning.

Well fuck me, right?

6. They leave the kitchen counter a mess.

You're not at home. I'm not your mom. Did you spill the thing? Your lunch left crumbs? Wipe it up with a paper towel like an adult.

7. They keep their rotting food in the fridge.

Either you have the weakest sense of smell EVER, or you really don't give a fuck that the fridge smells like week-old egg salad and rotting meat.

8. They leave the toilet seat up.

Dudes, this one's ALL on you. ~quit being selfish~

9. They don't replace the toilet paper roll when it's finished.

It is literally in a cabinet. In the bathroom. Where you're sitting. Staring at the cabinet. Using the bathroom. Argh!

10. They leave the front door unlocked when they close the office for the night.

Now, I'm not saying a murderer is going to camp out in our office and kill me when I open up tomorrow morning, but I'm also not *not* saying that.

11. They take extended lunch or coffee breaks while leaving you to pick up the slack.

I'm pretty sure you don't get a breakfast break, a coffee break, a lunch break, and a snack break, but okay sure, see you in 20 minutes! Again.

12. They use your condiments without asking permission.

I get it, coffee tastes better with cream, but could you at least ask before using half of my bottle?

13. They don't contribute to company-wide potlucks or luncheons.

I know you make more money than me, but somehow you can't even afford to contribute a $5 box of cookies from Jewel? I see you can afford to eat the appetizers I made, though... *sips tea*

14. They never respond to emails even though you know they're on their computer screwing around.

The email tab is literally sitting open on the side of your screen. We get pop-up notifications that an email has come through. Just click respond, damn it!

15. They leave early to "work from home," but in reality you know they're done for the day.

Because so are you.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
