You have to handle plenty of serious employee gripes about benefits and harassment. But as shown by a new CareerBuilder survey of 2,600 HR pros and hiring managers, you also have had to deal with some truly offbeat complaints. Some highlights include employees’ gripes that a co-worker: 

  • Has big hair
  • Eats all the good cookies
  • Is so polite, it’s infuriating
  • Is trying to poison me
  • Has a ‘magnetic body’ and keeps de-activating his magnetic access card
  • Only wears slippers or socks at work
  • Has an ‘aura that’s all wrong’
  • Breathes too loudly
  • Wants to check a co-worker for ticks
  • Wore bells on her shoes and it’s not the holidays
  • Reminded him too much of Bambi
  • Spent too much time caring for stray cats around the building
  • (Male co-worker) keeps using the ladies’ room because the men’s room is not as tidy.
