Deja Brew, Jambivalence and other irritating Office behaviours ...

Ever had a case of ‘Déjà Brew’? …. Those who own a Company or are too independent may not be able to enjoy this …. Here is an article that appeared in Independent.co.uk that for sure will make you laugh to your heart’s content ~ acknowledging the things around you….

Wondering what is ‘Deja Brew’ …… you will understand this better  when a colleague offers to make you a cup of tea knowing fully  well you've just had one?  ~ and are just returning from the pantry !

Or perhaps you know that person who continually steals office stationery, otherwise known as 'Stock Home Syndrome'? Well, you're not alone, ‘ Déjà Brew’ and 'Stock Home Syndrome' have made it into the list of the most irritating office behaviour in Britain, according to a poll by television channel Dave. However, the thing that irked the nation the most was those who waste time on Twitter and Facebook to avoid doing work, with 26 per cent of people naming it as the most annoying office habit.

In a hilarious video The Apprentice star Nick Hewer shares his top five pet office hates in typical no nonsense style. Topping them are  : "Shout-of-office"; , "Jambivalence", …. Here is the list of most annoying office behaviour in Britain: (and the ones I liked most)

1. Social Notworking – messing around on Facebook and Twitter to avoid doing work – 26%
2. Déjà Brew – offering to make someone a cup of tea when you know for a fact they’ve just had one in the hope they will decline - 21%
3. Blue sky drinking – an unlimited free bar at a work party – 18%
4. Drainstorm – a poorly organised workshop, where everyone leaves feeling deflated – 15%
5. Human Desourcing – sacking people – 12%
6. Jambivalence – rush to the printer to find out paper jam, still ignoring a printer blockage in the hope that someone else will fix it 12%
7. Google Naps – using Google to work out what time colleagues in the US will be sleeping, to avoid them replying to emails – 11%
8. W.T.F?! – the realisation that it is only Tuesday, and you have ‘Wednesday, Thursday, Friday?!’ still to do - 9%
9. Stock Home Syndrome – pinching stuff from the office - 7%
10. Shout-of-office – Someone who wants every single person in the building to know they are off on holiday – 6% (also those who walk talking loudly inside the office, only to show everyone that they are busy ..!!)

You for sure can contribute to the list or modify them to your heart’s content – fixing face to the activity that irritates you daily.
