- We all know how annoying colleagues can be but the things they do that infuriate us are sometimes shared by people. This is possible because these situations come down to emails which are often unbelievably annoying. The list below shows some fine examples of that.
1. The late emails
It seems that some people have a complete and total disregard for their colleagues’ private lives and what is more important, the working hours of the company they are employed at.
2. The supervisor
Here is how some people think that others are just sitting there and waiting for their emails 24/7. This is just not so and it is not supposed to be like that, too. Reporting to the supervisor in this case was appalling.
3. The meeting
Here is how work is not done as it is supposed to. Someone had the audacity to bother their coworkers on Friday evening and this person has all the right to ignore that.
4. The other meeting
Here is how one manager wanted to make all the employees follow the work email account 24/7 but there was no compensation for that additional effort and stress, of course.
5. The timezones
Now, this is something that people need to understand because it always leads to misunderstandings that could ruin business relationships very quickly.
6. The projects
Here is yet another example of the kind of things that professionals simply cannot stand. Clients always want their work done ASAP but they really should plan things in advance.
7. The vacation
This is a situation that many people would probably relate to because they have been a part of similar situations. This kind of behavior is unacceptable because people need to respect their employees’ personal time.
8. The page
This is one person who knows how to handle their work assignments. It seems that people expect others to be online all the time but there are working hours that need to be respected.
9. The missed calls
It seems that coworkers have zero respect for others and they only care about their personal problems. Someone wanted to check a phone number but did not bother to do it outside of working hours.
10. Monday morning
One of the things workers find to be among the most annoying of all is the times when people call or send emails outside of working hours, especially on weekends. They should not complain about not getting a response.
11. The eight minutes
Here is how some people really don’t deserve the fast response they require from their colleagues. This person was right to consider recalling their email and leaving it in the draft folder.
12. The function
This person is actually right to consider that such pushy emails should be sent straight into the bin because people need to learn that there might be something much more important than their requests.
13. The late email
The people who act like that are trying to create the kind of situation that is actually inappropriate because the people that need to respond always feels like they should have worked during the weekend.
14. The advisor
Here is something simple: people are not obliged to check their emails after working hours and they should relax during weekends instead of working. Not responding to such emails is always the way to go.
15. The week-long vacation
Here is yet another person who was unfortunate to have this kind of email even despite their best effort to inform everyone they were not available. The person even mailed them again to ask why there was no response.
16. The assistant
Some people can be unbelievably pushy to the point they become obnoxious and this is a fine example of that. As you can see, some people never quit even when they should.
17. The first email
People need to understand that when they push others to do something ASAP without them needing to, they are likely to not get the response they want.
18. The response
It seems that some people are patient enough not to ignore this kind of email and they actually take their time to inform them they sent their email outside of the company working hours.
19. The late email
If someone needs to send a late email, they should do it without pushing the recipient to reply within minutes after they see the message. This person should reply by explaining the situation as it is.
20. The weekend email
People always fool around with words like URGENT, IMPORTANT, ASAP, etc. They also write them in capital letters, too. They hope they will attract attention and the recipient would reply faster.
21. The home office
Some people really believe that working from home means that one could be reached 24/7. It appears that this could not be more wrong and such an assumption should never occur to anyone.
22. The report
This is one good story because it involves a boss who actually understood that emails sent after working hours are not to be taken into account until the next workday.
23. The morning emails
Trying to keep your cool in such a situation is very difficult because people really push it sometimes. They believe you are obliged to stay after work only to fulfill their initial requirements.
24. The client
This story sounds like the scenario for a low-budget movie and we believe that the person who kept leaving rude messages received what they deserved in the end.
25. The meeting
Managers usually try to play the nice guy in the company by trying to softly push the employees to not neglect emails sent at the end of Friday so the work would be done by Monday.
