Survey shows that bad personal hygiene is disgusting
A new survey of Irish workers has revealed that poor personal hygiene was found to be the most irritating characteristic between colleagues.
The survey conducted by office supplier Viking, discovered that 64 percent of the workers found smelly colleagues irritating, followed closely by those who spoke loudly on the phone (60 percent) and those who used foul language (30 percent).
Other personal gripes included people eating smelly foods and those who had untidy desks.
Interestingly the same characteristics do not irritate women and men alike; untidy desks and borrowing stationery irritate men in particular while inappropriate clothing and smelly foods scored higher for women.
