Incivility Can Cause Stress at Work

by Jacqueline Whitmore

A recent online survey (by, a job-search Web site) found that co-workers’ annoying habits are the No. 1 source of stress in the workplace. Nearly 60 percent of the 2,200 respondents said that such habits have negatively affected their work relationships, and 40 percent said they have led them to seek a different job. The top complaint…talking too loudly on the phone, followed by constant whining about work.

Do you work with an annoying co-worker? If so, what is the worst habit you have witnessed at work? E-mail me with your stories.
