I have a co-worker that likes the lights off... claims they cause too much heat. I don't complain about it much though. I deal with it until it gets too dark and then just turn on the lights.

Live and let live. I find a deep breath and a brisk walk out of the chair usually stem most things. One has little control over their environment, but full control over their own attitude.

For a conversational starter I have a list :
- Adjusting my chair - other people use my desk when I am not there, we have a large transient population, no problem with that but as a back pain sufferer why do they feel it necessary to fiddle with me chair every time?
- Rudeness - all too often people leap to conclusions and don't like the fit with their ideas so rather than discussing just go off the deep end, we should work together, a weak suggestion rather than none can at least lead to discussion and an agreed result
- People who don't like fresh air - too many office workers seem to like hot & stuffy which just sends me to sleep.

It's got to be people who don't answer their phone! We're all busy, but sometimes a phone is left ringing for someone else to pick up (we all do it, me included). It's frustrating though...especially when the ringer is turned up to max volume!

I agree with that last one about the phone ringing, although more annoyed with the caller - if they haven't picked up after the 12th ring, they're either busy or NOT THERE!!

I get frustrated with people dismissing my ideas because "I will learn with experience" - a 19 year age gap really can cause issues! Please - if it's a genuinely bad idea, explain why! Don't just say that I'll learn over time.

Never mind Ben. I'm sure, with a little more experience, you will understand why they can't be bothered to explain

I'm the guy who likes the lights off because we are on an outside wall with plenty of windows. I usually get between 15 and 30 minutes of soothing darkness before a co-worker comes in to turn the lights on. I have a lamp at my desk that I use when I need a little light.

My pet peeves are speakerphone, although I'm guilty (get a headset) and music (get headphones).

Mobile phones ringing incessantly and people bumping into my chair while walking around other wise its "LIVE AND LET LIVE".

peeves:

speakerphone (get a conference room if more than one of you are crowding around a phone in an open cube)

used to share a cube with a person who tapped out drumbeats to marches on the desk while working... for long periods of time. VERY irritating.
