Those annoying office habits

The Independent features a video The Apprentice star Nick Hewer sharing his top five pet office hates in what they describe as a typical no nonsense style. For the record the top ten are:

1. Social Notworking – messing around on Facebook and Twitter to avoid doing work – 26%
2. Déjà Brew – offering to make someone a cup of tea when you know for a fact they’ve just had one in the hope they will decline- 21%
3. Blue sky drinking – an unlimited free bar at a work party –18%
4. Drainstorm – a poorly organised workshop, where everyone leaves feeling deflated – 15%
5. Human Desourcing – sacking people – 12%
6. Jambivalence – ignoring a printer blockage in the hope that someone else will fix it 12%
7. Google Naps – using Google to work out what time colleagues in the US will be sleeping, to avoid them replying to emails –11%
8. W.T.F?! – the realisation that it is only Tuesday, and you have ‘Wednesday, Thursday, Friday?!’ still to do - 9%
9. Stock Home Syndrome – pinching stuff from the office - 7%
10. Shout-of-office – Someone who wants every single person in the building to know they are off on holiday – 6%

You can watch the video here.
Maybe when oil run's out people may be out on the fields again and do some real work rather than pissing about in offices!
