At recent poll by SnagAJob.com found that about one-third of respondents were most annoyed by slackers while another third were most annoyed by kiss-ups. "It's not fun being surrounded by Dwight from 'The Office' or George Costanza (from 'Seinfeld')," said Cathy McCarthy, senior vice president of marketing for SnagAJob.com. Dwight is an unapologetic kiss-up; George is a notorious slacker. Gossips, loud talkers, and hypochondriacs were also found to be annoying by many workers. The good news is that in a previous poll, SnagAJob.com found that 61% of people like their jobs. You can find this story and a related one about huggers on MarketWatch.com.
