There is this woman who sits directly behind me and she is the most irritating woman on the planet… she’s driving me insane!! She can probably read this, just like she reads everything else on my screen. Every other sentance out of her mouth is a whining complaint about her work, or an ‘Oh no’ or an ‘Ohhh god’ and when she isn’t making loud whining complaints she’s either sighing loudly, yawning as though she’s trying to break a record of how long and musical she can make it, or clearing her throat in a high pitch….. It’s like having an chronically depressed Eeyore sitting directly behind you. She’s had a cold for the past four months SOLID and sits behind me sniffing and coughing every few minutes. I’d feel bad for her if she didn’t do everything so loudly that I’ve had to go out and buy ear plugs to try and block her out!! She also has loud gossiping conversations with her friends in other departments and when on a number of occasions in the past her manager has complained to her about the standard of her work she just walks out and goes home for the afternoon…. and there are no repercussions!! She just comes back the next day as if nothing has happened!! ….I did feel bad for her for a while, but it’s been going on so long that I just want to yell at her ‘SUCK IT UP AND GET ON WITH IT!!’ we all have to deal with rubbishness but we don’t all use it as an excuse to make other people miserable!!
