    What really pisses you off on the job? Someone not making the next pot of coffee...people that walk away from a paper jam at the copier instead of fixing it...too many meetings...no OT...etc.

    What "peeve" do you have at work?

    I'll know when I get there.
    Whining or *****ing and moaning when you can't do anything about the situation.

    people who take soda from the honor system fridge and do not put any $$$ in. Some even shook the money jar to fool those sitting near it.

    The dishonesty.

    We have the same set of people cheating the timeclock that we always have. They are never made to face consequences for their actions. These are the same people who are dishonest about other things. It's gotten to the point that I purposely keep information from these individuals which they might use to gain an advantage (by lying).

    Ex: I have details on how to document (for healthcare points) the footrace I'm doing this Saturday. If I tell certain people in the office about it, they will write that they participated when in fact they didn't.

    People in corporate doing their best to run the company into the ground and saying that people are afraid of change when there are complaints.

    My biggest is the aholes that don't replace the jug on the water cooler. Makes me so mad.

    People who burn popcorn in the microwave. Or anything else for that matter, and then not cleaning it up. We all know the thing is superpowered, yet people still enter in eternity and walk away, then seem surprised when their oatmeal has blown up.

    TP, makes me mad, but also grosses me out. First, it makes me mad because it's selfish and shows they have NO consideration. It grosses me out, thinking that what are the odds there was just enough on the roll for them.

    This was my pet peeve. I believe when you have certain scheduled work hours you should be available. Having to wait for Sally/Jim to come in late is not acceptable.

    So far this morning i have been ranting about mistakes in Corporate Communications and training material. If they expect everyone to read it then they should read it themselves and make sure that the information is correct.

    Meetings the don't do anything. When I first started work here, there were meetings that didn't accomplish anything or even have an agenda. I couldn't stand those. Those meetings have gone away for the most part.

    Speaking of meetings, I'll add the manager's power play "meeting scheduled at quitting time".
