Two of my co-workers have developed a rather disgusting habit – they have started to cut their fingernails whilst sitting at their desk. It is not as disgusting as some of the things I guess they could start doing at their desks, but still it annoys me. For me, personal hygiene tasks should be performed in the privacy of your own home or at the least in the bathroom. I could understand if you get a broken nail you might need to do some emergency repairs, but this is not is what is going on here. Both of them (one male, one female) get out their nail clippers, reposition the bin and start cutting all ten nails. I am concerned that one day they will move onto their toenails.
Since WordPress.com now has a poll feature, I am going to run a poll. This will probably prove that I am just overreacting about the whole cutting the fingernails at the desk thing.
Whilst you are here, let me know about the disgusting habits of your co-workers so that I feel good that all my guys are doing are cutting their fingernails.
