    My old manager was a serial nose picker. During meetings, conversations, just sitting in the office he'd be picking his nose. And if he wasn't picking, he'd be rolling them up and flicking them GAHH!

    A male co-worker used to wear orange foundation caked on all the way down to his collar.
    He told everyone it was the latest Proactive tinted moisturiser...

    Oh man. There's a guy in my office who sleeps...

    We go to seminars.. He sleeps..

    We have lab meetings and someone presents... He sleeps..

    He admitted playing games all night and hardly sleeps :/

    It's so hard trying to give a talk and his heads lolling all over the show.. Some days I think he might topple off his chair....

    I kid you not, he has 3-5 naps a day

    I've had a few weirdos, I'm a nurse.

    One girl used to have big dramas and fights with people and then delete you off fb and then wan to re add you? Wierd.

    Another one spends her life trying to advoid work to the point that people beg the co ordinaters to not make them work with her

    This one gave me the giggles big time

    I used to work with 2 ladies that would go and take leftover sandwiches from meetings at work....to the point where they would go to the catering kitchen and take things that hadn't even been served yet!! We had big meetings for surgeons/board meetings so they were nice gourmet sandwiches!!

    A woman I work with is completely OTT about being the Guardian of the Biscuit Tin. She does the stationery/kitchen supply orders, and she rules with an iron fist. We had to have an uprising to be allowed Arnotts Assorted Creams instead of plain Scotch Fingers. Our manager (not the branch manager- our way way up manager) had to step in and tell her we were allowed the creams. She locks them up at night so the cleaner won't pinch them. And I once got a long lecture for refilling the biscuit jar when there were still a few lameo scotch fingers and anzacs at the bottom.

    That's just one example, I could talk for hours about her rules on pens.
