To think there are too many 'types' of people in an office/work environment.

Just a bit of fun really:

I've been having an issue with a colleague recently and the only way I could see it getting resolved was for me to move on to a new job after I'd spoken to my boss...they wouldn't do anything as colleague is really good friend with my on the advice of friends and Mumsnet jury Smile I've decided to leave. This past week I've noticed colleagues habits that really irritate me so was wondering if any of you have them too?

Colleague 1 Talks/shrills extremely loud and the whole world has to know her drama.

Colleague 2 Silent farts and walks away and stinks the place out.

Colleague 3 Talks with mouth full and spits food everywhere. Anything left over spits out the crumbs whilst talking on the floor.

Colleague 4 Walks around in bare feet and the feet are yellow/brown and smell like gone off cheese.

Colleague 5 The gossip who just cannot control themselves and makes snide/snipe/snippy comments. "Well so and so didn't come back from their lunch till after 1 this isn't the first time" when the boss just happens to walk past.

Colleague 6 The idea stealer.

I also have a really lovely colleague and is very friendly and doesn't do any of these. Was just wondering what other colleagues will be awaiting me when I move on.
