THE SCHMUCK OF THE IRISH

PORTLAOISE -- An Ireland recruitment company survey shows that the number one source of discord among office workers is the annoying habits of colleagues.

...Namely, looking over one's shoulder when you're typing in your HMO entries. (StanYan1@aol.com, MrglsJon@aol.com)

There's no problem at MY office as long as everyone remembers to kiss my ass. (MooseSpeak@earthlink.net)

I conquered that one by BEING the annoying habit. (Seeker@Vcoms.net)

Practicing the Heimlich Maneuver with all the pretty secretaries is NOT a habit - it is a lifesaving activity. (SSCompose@aol.com)

Well, if that *X@^%!! Jankath didn't work in the office next door.... (MooseSpeak@earthlink.net)

...Gee, Cad...I'd think Moose would get mad at you submitting entries under his name.

Just because a coworker is with the IRA and blows up a few people....geesh, there are some who complain about everything. (TZMAC@aol.com)

Look, once and for all...Catholics and Protestants in SEPARATE departments! (MooseSpeak@earthlink.net)

How rude! If my coworker was eating their boogers, I would have the courtesy not to look. (Cantw82paint@Aol.com)

One habit, not so annoying, is secretly tying dis(miniblind)cord to the secretary's blouse..just before she walks away. (Baitsmotel6@aol.com)

Maybe if more of those "colleagues" were "colleens" there would be a little less complaining. (dannyboy4343@aol.com)

In a similar U.S.company survey, it showed that the #1 source of great office parties is also those same annoying habits of colleagues. (tackajoey@aol.com)

Like the boss' annoying habit of requesting that I actually work. (Pootybrew@earthlink.net)

As today's winner, SSCompose@aol.com, will tell ya, it's not the break that causes the problem - it's the crack:

What's wrong with playing online strip poker while on your break, anyway? (SSCompose@aol.com)
