Survey reveals Ireland's most annoying office habits

As another day begins in offices across the country, it has emerged that poor personal hygiene is the trait that bothers us most about colleagues.

A survey from Viking office suppliers has found speaking too loudly on the phone is in second place, while foul language, people who do not listen and gossipers make up the rest of the top five.

The most annoying personality type overall is listed as 'the complainer', the person who moans, gossips and cannot keep their thoughts to themselves.

However, it seems we are not too keen to tackle these issues, with the majority of people choosing to simply get on with their work.
