We’ve all heard horror stories of current or past co-workers becoming too comfortable at the office.
I’ll never forget hearing (on my first day several years ago) about a past employee who used the only bathroom on the second floor to shave before a date and did not clean up after herself. Or the man who used to make lengthy and loud personal calls. Or the woman who kept decaying items in the shared refrigerator and adamantly insisted they couldn’t be thrown out.
If you think these behaviors are outrageous, these are nothing compared to what others have experienced.
One friend had a co-worker not only constantly staring at her but inundating her with questions that got more and more personal every day. She finally put an end to it when she asked to have her desk moved. Unfortunately, that meant the questions came from across the room. And every time she opened a desk drawer or got out a snack, the person inquired as to what she was doing.
What co-worker tales of woe do you have to share?
