I fully acknowledge there are far worse things, but she microwaved salmon.



The guy who touched himself the entire time I was doing the onboard packet with him immediately comes to mind.



We had a middle aged lady that smelled like tuna. I was a manager and had to send her home one particularly hot day. I also had to put her chair outside after she left as it still smelled. It was such a shame as she was a really nice lady. She just f—king stank.



I quit smoking due to a coworker that would follow me to every smoke break to talk about their problems when I needed some god damn me-time. Its been 3 years, and I still haven’t bothered to pick the habit back up.



I win this one. She made a pot of coffee for the staff but spiked it with meth.



Steve. Steve sat in the cubicle behind me and ate ice all night long. Crunch, crunch, crunch. Shake, shake, chomp.



She told our boss that she wanted to break into my apartment and touch all of my stuff because “I bet it’s all really cool”. This was right after I found out she’d moved into the apartment next door. She would send stuff to my apartment just so I would put it on her stoop and knock on her door.

This woman who was one of those people who always had to one up you. Like if you cut your thumb off, she was just recently sawed in half. She was constantly complaining and miserable and it was so draining.
