Got Someone Grinding Your Gears at Work?
One fact in life that you may soon realize is that some people tend to be annoying sometimes. They include even the ones who are close to you like your family, your friends, or your significant other, They can all get on your nerves sometimes.
Still, some people seem to make a living by being annoying. These individuals have the uncanny ability to irritate and annoy you without even trying. You may be at your wit’s end trying to deal with them.
Work is stressful enough already, what with the workload, pressure, and deadlines. Adding an annoying co-worker to the mix can make you just want to rip your hair out!

However, if someone irritates not just you but other people as well, then you can say that person is truly annoying.

Ways to Deal with Annoying Co-workers
You have all the rights and the means to protect yourself from your annoying co-workers. Here are the 3 top ways of dealing with them:
- Positivity is the key.
Some people mean well and don’t intend to irritate you. Still, they can be annoying at times. Dwelling on them distracts you from being your most productive self at work. You need to stay focused on your job. Let anything that your annoying co-workers do or say roll off your back.
- Assert what you want.
Be assertive with what you want. Do you have a co-worker who’s constantly asking you to hang out with them? If they can’t take a hint from your first few rejections of their offer, be assertive and say it to them straight that you don’t want to be with them. Tell them to respect your space and that you’re 100% not interested in joining their company.
- Find common ground.
Common interests can help people work together better. If you’re constantly clashing with co-workers or they’re deliberately trying to cause friction, try finding a common interest that you can use to build upon your relationship with them. For instance, do they hate the weird smell coming from the pantry? What a coincidence, you do, too!
