The Top 10Things that Cause Arguments at the Office
In a perfect wold we'd get along with everyone we work with; but besides our families, our co-workers are the people we see on a regular basis. So, you're bound to bump heads every now and then.
The Daily Mail reports on a poll, of 2,000 workers, that found the top 10 things that cause office arguments. What grinds your gears? Too hot, too cold? You're part of the majority of people (70%) who argue over the thermostat. The poll found that temperature is the number one thing that causes arguments amongst co-workers.
...more than a third of people argue with colleagues at least once a month about the issue, and one in eight have even admitted to secretly adjusting the thermostat."
I've got a solution for you: invest in a blanket or Snuggie.
This is the full list of things that causes arguments at the office:
- The temperature
- Eating smelly food
- Being too loud on phone calls (loud music, TV)
- Making a mess
- Making the coffee
- Not getting credit or paid for all the hours you work
- People stealing food from the fridge
- Having conversations when people are trying to work
- Lighting in the office
- Hogging shared spaces like the conference room or the break room
The funny thing is all of the things people fight about at work has nothing to do with work.
