The Struggle Is Real: 10 Problematic People In Every Office (In GIFs!)

michael-scott

This morning, just like every other morning, I got into work and meandered over to the company Keurig in desperate need of coffee to find that, yet again, the last person to use the coffee machine didn’t refill the water. How hard is it to put the container under the sink for five seconds? For months we’ve been plagued with this problem thanks to lazy caffeine drinkers, and I have been seriously contemplating the installation of nanny cams to find the culprit(s). Maybe then we’d determine who’s guilty of some of these other workplace crimes.

A Hilarious Look Inside The Minds Of Real Women At Work

working-woman-thoughts

A typical day at the office usually involves coffee, important meetings, creative brainstorms, game-faced strategizing, snacks and more coffee, and tons of hard work, right? Sure, of course it does, but not just all of that! From Spanx to poor punctuation in gossip posts, managing procrastination to Miley Cyrus, we’ve got A LOT running through our heads – all day long.

Thus, we here at The Stir thought we’d solve the mystery that is what women are really thinking while we’re in those meetings and cubicles! If you thought everything we muse about in the office was all snoozey business all the time, whoo, are YOU in for a wake-up call! Check it out on The Stir…

40 Annoying Habits That Will Give Your Coworkers A Nervous Breakdown

In honor of Global Handwashing Day (yes, it’s real holiday!), the Metro UK compiled a list of the five most annoying types of coworkers. Among them were the sick person (who spreads their plague just by setting foot in the office), the feeder (who shows up every day with leftover cookies or birthday cake) the noisy eater (who slurps and sucks and licks their fingers after they eat Dorito’s) the stuff losers (who are always looking for their pen or their shoes) and the Google disbelievers (who still doesn’t know where to look for guidance about how to spell the word I-N-F-U-R-I-A-T-I-N-G).

Really? These sounds pretty innocuous when compared to some of the INFURIATING human beings we’ve worked with. We’ll take the person who brings in cake over the person who announces their bowel movements any day of the work week. Here are the top 40 most annoying coworker habits we’ve encountered. Please note: If you do any of these things, on behalf of the workforce, we beg you to stop before you drive your colleagues insane. Keep reading »

A Tacky/Impersonal/Genius Way To Deal With Office Birthdays

God, not another one, you think, about the endless cycle of office birthday parties. The infinite number of birthday cards being passed around for Doug in accounting or Jenny in receiving––people you’ve barely nodded your head toward in the hallway. “Do I have to say something nice about people I barely know again,” you think. Well, the lazy bastards  at one Redditor’s office seem to have found a supremely lazy solution–A multiple choice check box all-purpose birthday card. Here, Joe is congratulated by most of his colleagues for getting another year old. Most of his colleagues, that is, except for Peter and Steve F., who are possibly throwing shade Joe’s way. Happy birthday Joe, from … all of us. [Digital Spy]

Is It Friday Yet? A Field Guide To Terrible Office Humor

Last week, I had my friend Katelyn over to spend the day co-working at my house. Usually I work from home alone, which I don’t mind, but I was thrilled to have a coworker for the day, and immediately regaled her with some of the worst workplace jokes I had collected from the years I spent working in traditional offices. “Damn, is it Friday yet?” I groaned as I walked to the kitchen to get more coffee. ”Why are you talking like that?” she asked with genuine concern, and suddenly I realized Katelyn had never had a desk job. She had no idea about novelty coffee mugs and perfectly timed staff meeting zingers. It was quite possible she had never come down with a nasty case of the Mondays.

I spent the rest of the day schooling her on the basics of office humor, and decided that it would probably be prudent to compile all the worst office joke genres in one place. Whether you’re new to the subject or have been honing your “Give me coffee and nobody gets hurt” material for years, read on for a comprehensive field guide to 9-5 humor…
