Apparently This Is The Most Annoying Habit That Irritates Irish Office Workers

When it comes to annoying office habits, a survey has revealed that eating smelly food at the desk ranks highest on the list of offenders, according to a new survey. 

Matrix Recruitment asked office workers to identify the 'workplace habits guaranteed to irritate your colleagues'.

In fairness, there is nothing worse than when someone takes their lunch out from their bag and it reeks as soon as the lid opens.

Colleagues who come to work when they are sick, those who steal food from the fridge and borrow staplers and pens also made people's blood boil.

Speaking about the results, spokeswoman Joanne Foley said, "Now that we spend more and more time at work, office etiquette has become increasingly important.

"You might be brilliant at your job but if you annoy the hell out of 99% of your co-workers, it’s not your financial wizardry or IT skills for which you’ll be remembered.

"Regardless of how delicious it might be, eating last night’s fish pie or your favourite egg and onion sandwiches at your desk is bound to make you unpopular among your colleagues."

So if you're one of the guilty workers who likes to snack on odd smelling food, it might be best to eat the dish at home.
