This has been a major gripe of mine for years now: people who come into work early and noisily eat a bowl of cereal at their desk. Maybe I’m just a bit prickly in the morning, but nothing seems to annoy me more than twenty or thirty instalments of this…
Noisily pick up bowl
Clack away with a spoon
Crunch crunch crunch crunch
Put down bowl
Repeat 10 seconds later.
As I write this, one person is clacking away at the remnants of a bowl and another is scrunching up the bag of their cereal box and heading towards the fridge.
Person who sits opposite me gets in and most mornings will then crack open a massive bag of crisps and get stuck in for half an hour or so. I mean I’m very much live and let live but this behaviour doesn’t sit right with me.
