At this exact moment, I want to jump out of my seat and yell "PLEASE GO AWAY!"
- This lady at work, keeps coming to my desk to use my phone. She's done it 3 times in the past 2 hours, and it makes the hairs on the back of my neck, stand in annoyance. It would be one thing if she said "Excuse me, can I use your phone?" I would even be okay with her saying (in the usual Nigerian manner), "Berry I'm using your phone." Actually, that's a lie. That irks me too - telling me instead of asking...
Anyways, she just magically appears behind me and starts dialing and I'm supposed to just sit there and smile at her. Eeeek! She just took my pen without asking too! *O lawd, somebody help me* I literally feel like a cockroach is climbing all over my body :(
- You know what though? She's better than this other man in the office. For whatever reason, he seems to believe that I'm in dire need of a neck massage. I'll be working at my desk, and from nowhere, I feel hands on my neck and shoulders, rubbing me. With trepidation and irritation, I turn around and he's there, smiling. EWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW!!! I need to shower. I feel yucky just thinking about it. You'd think that since Physical Touch is my love language, I wouldn't mind being touched. But eww! It has to be from people I actually like. :(
- I don't dress in an overtly revealing manner at work (contrary to what one or two people might say - they're just haters). But this man (a different one from the one above) constantly stares at me. As in, I'm walking down the hall, and he's watching and smiling. Or I'm speaking with my boss, and he's at his desk, looking at me. Or I'm trying to do some work and he comes to my desk and asks why I didn't come to greet him personally. Or he'll mention an artist he likes and insist that I open Youtube to listen to the music. (He likes OLD country music) *insert blank stare*
Speaking of office characters, the lady that told me I shouldn't bother trying to diet because I'm allegedly orobo (fat/obese/round) and will never lose the weight, moved to a different department. YAY ME :)
PS: I realize 'Peevy' isn't a word, but I created it based on 'Pet Peeves.' So it just means Annoying. At which point, I ask myself why I didn't just title this post 'Annoying Coworkers.' :-|
