The professions with the highest level of office upset
According to research from AppliancesDirect.co.uk Two-thirds of office-based workers have fallen out over the kitchen cleanliness and washing up over the past year.
Other upset-causing acts for office workers include: talking loudly (52%); lateness and poor timekeeping (45%); bad personal hygiene (37%); running out of milk, coffee and tea bags (28%); and lost or stolen food or drink (23%). 15% said they would directly confront a co-worker about the above, while 35% said they would do what I like to call the ‘British confrontation’ – a passive-aggressive email or note.
It is the younger members of staff, those aged between 18- and 24-years-old, who are most likely to have a confrontation over a work-based issue.

- Financial services (93%)
