Guest Post: Most Annoying Office Habits by Lisa Lim

Yup, I love a good book.

So when Lisa Lim contacted me asking if I'd let her guest post to help promote her new book, I gladly agreed. I'll support any author who needs it.

See, Lisa writes chick lit just like I do so this made me even more excited. Her book, Confessions of a Call Center Girl, sounded hilarious and as you'll see, her guest post is equally amusing.

So without further ado...

Here's Lisa!

Most Annoying Office Habits

A colleague of mine (let’s call her Janet) clips her fingernails at work. I’ll be conversing with a customer, and in the background I’ll hear the maddening Clip Clip Clip Clip sounds resonating in my ears, sounding very much like Japanese water torture.

Then Janet will sand her nails with vigor, causing a plume of nail dust to settle on my desk. Next she’ll whip out ten bottles of nail polish and perform a mani and pedi, and thus fumigating the entire office.

I personally would never floss, pick my nose, use Q-tips, pop my blackheads or shave my pits at work. That is why it is called personal hygiene.

Care to share your office gripes? Or are you guilty of perpetrating these crimes?

***To quote Moliere ~ “Writing is like prostitution. First you do it for love, and then for a few close friends, and then for money.” So ehrmm . . . *COUGH*. . . if you’d like to check out the works of this whore, my chick lit novel: Confessions of a Call Center Gal (it’s Bridget Jones meets The Office) is available on paperback and Kindle on Amazon (check it out here), and Barnes and Noble (check it out here)

***Book disclosures ~If you find politically incorrect shows like The Office and Chelsea Lately detestable, childish and offensive, then this book is probably NOT for you.


  1. There are some gross, inconsiderate people out there, aren't there? I used to work witg a woman who picked food out of her teeth, look at it on her toothpick and then eat it. No one wanted to sit near her. Gross!

  2. Gross! I would not be able to stand not asking her to take her hygeine somewhere else! Yuck!

  3. Definitely adding this book to my Kindle. Sounds hilarious.

  4. My colleague complains when I eat my crunchy vegetables. ^^

  5. Oh I am definitely checking out the book- sounds awesome.

    Women are disgusting co-workers:)

  6. Ewww, nail clipping?!? I worked in a cube and had the guy next to me chew gum so loud you could hear him smacking his lips--ALL DAY.

  7. That is horrible!

    But the book sounds intriguing!

  8. Thanks for telling us about this book. Just added it to my new Kindle. It is starting off great. Very entertaining!
