Annoyance No. 10: Office Pranksters

Much like meetings, pranks around the office are only appreciated in small doses; any more than that and they become a gigantic annoyance. Even those with a good sense of humor will tire quickly if they can’t go to the restroom without coming back to a trashed cube or a computer that doesn’t work.

There’s a time and a place for pranks in the office. The same goes for the rest of these annoying habits.
