Probably not acceptable during a minutes silence.

Taking your shoes off:

  • No way - get the fuck out
  • Hmmm I’ll let it slide
  • Yeah absolutely I’m a complete cretin who everyone thinks is a cunt. Sod it, get the socks off as well!

The porridge in question has made our small office smell of peanut butter. It’s rank.

(I have a smaller issue with people eating breakfast cereal at work but I will let that one pass).


#7

Farting at a workplace urinal, with a colleague using the adjacent urinal.

  • Acceptable
  • Not acceptable
  • Pull my finger

#8

Option D: I’m in my own office with the door closed, frankly you’re lucky I’m even wearing trousers.


#9

I’m pretty relaxed about general conduct but shoes off is a big, big no-no for me. Fortunately I’ve never had to manage anyone who’s into it because I’d have to have words about it.

EDIT - If you have your own office like Epimer then do what ever you like within those walls.


#10

Spraying deodorant on yourself at your desk:

  • What the actual fuck?
  • Acceptable

#11

Swearing at work:

  • Abso-fucking-lutely yer prick!
  • I don’t swear myself but wouldn’t have a little cry
  • I’m 95 years old and have no real purpose in life so don’t like swearing at work and report anyone who swears to management

#12

Dunno why people would be against this


#13

Because some people find it cloying or it makes them sneeze or their eyes water. Put your Lynx Africa on in the bogs.


#14

I’ll swear when chatting privately to colleagues, but I’m not going to call someone a cunt in a meeting or anything.


#15

Whip 'em off!


#16

or, them people can go sneeze in the bogs


#17

who the shitting fuck would think guffing whilst taking a piss is unacceptable ? that’s it. I’m done with DiS. Cunts.


#18

I try really hard not to but have properly fallen off the wagon today.

Twats.


#19

I was on the receiving end of this behaviour not five minutes before making this poll.

Thinking of filing a complaint with HR.


#20

I’d like to clarify my answer: At your desk and with socks/tights on: fine. Walking around the office or with bare feet: definitely not.
