    Angry Annoying/irritating work colleagues ... share your stories!

    Well, I have just about had it with one of my colleagues. He's been with the firm since June, and ever since has slowly been getting on my nerves. The floor we sit on, there is 6 of us in total, 3 of us have offices, 3 are in an open plan area outside our offices which is where this guy sits.

    Everytime he takes a phone call, its on loud speaker so everyone has to listen to it, if he watches a video on YouTube, the sound comes through the speakers, everyone has to listen. Neither of the other 2 do the same, hes just annoying!

    Then, hes constantly complaining to me about his work load. He will come strolling in, complain about how much work he has, then walk out again as if to make me feel sorry and give him sympathy! Its getting to the point now where I just ignore it.

    I think its just his antics which wind me up, his general smugness and arrogance is not doing him any favours in my eyes!

    Rant over ... share your stories!

    Office is a law firm, however we are support staff, I work in the print room so we have an office as it would be too noisy without one, the guy in question is IT support.

    discuss the problem with the person on a purely professional/work level, suggest a "meeting" at some convenient time

    Think it would sort more things out that just a "meeting".

    Spoke to the others who sit in the area today when this guy was out and they said how much it annoys them. They've only been sitting there 3 weeks and I have been back 3 days and its annoying me already. Still, the big boss who sits in the other office is back Monday, will see what happens then!
