Top 20 Strangest Complaints about Co-Workers

Happy workers NBC New York's news of the weird reports on a recent survey done by of  hiring managers across the country, asking about the top 20 strangest complaints they've received from employees.

The answers are often what you might expect, ranging from criticism of personal appearance to obnoxious idiosyncracies. These were ranked the best, though:

  • Employee suspected co-worker was a pimp
  • Employee smells like road ramps
  • Employee's aura is wrong
  • Employee's body is magnetic and keeps de-activating my magnetic access card
  • Co-Worker reminded employee too much of Bambi
  • Employee is so polite, it's infuriating
  • Employee is trying to poison me
  • Employee is personally responsible for the federally-mandated tax increase
  • Employee was annoyed the company didn't provide a place for naps during break time
  • Employee only wears slippers or socks at work
  • Employee breathes too loudly
  • Employee wore pajamas to work
  • Employee spends too much time caring for stray cats around the building
  • 8 a.m. is too early to get up for work

But of the 20 complaint-worthy infractions noted by Careerbuilder, perhaps none is so commonplace and universally despised upon as this:

"Employee eats all the good cookies".
