View Full Version : 'Office rage' hits new levels
08-13-2002, 10:20 AM
More than half of all office staff in the UK have become so angry at work they have nearly punched a colleague, according the results of a survey today.
Some 53% of workers have been brought to the brink of violence by "office rage", with loud-mouthed colleagues cited as the main cause.
Malfunctioning computers, excessive workloads and interruptions during telephone conversations were also found to make employees' blood boil.
The research, carried out by recruitment agency Pertemps, found that women were the most likely to nearly resort to violence while their male colleagues were more inclined to shout.

No, lunch is catered in everyday from the same company. I go nuts listening to everyone complain to me about the food, the mustard, the soup, the lettuce....the list goes on and on and on. My answer is if you don't like it, take your lazy ass out and BUY something! It's a free lunch.

All of you can just Bite Me! I don't have office rage. If anything, I have annoying, lazy, whiney, picky, co-workers rage. Don't mess with me while I'm driving and NEVER, EVER take my parking space. :D :2guns:

Definately office rage. Someone must have parked in her spot.

Seen sitting in the parking lot of the Bills Fan Zone was an abusive young woman carrying a case of angry smilies. She was about to unload the smilies in the Zone when authorities stopped her.
When questioned about the impending assault, Jaded7 was quoted saying "Bite me"
