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 :-P

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).

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.
