Forbes has a piece up today about the office habits of the clueless and the obnoxious, and the story started off with an anecdote about a young Wisconsin woman whose female coworker yaps too much on her cellphone, unwittingly sharing such intimacies as the status of her menstrual cycles, her relationships, and her problems getting pregnant. (Apparently, cell phones are not only an annoyance outside of the office, but in it as well! Where did we hear this before?). Forbes went onto list other office pet peeves like using a speakerphone with the office door open; smelly food; unkempt communal kitchens; and intrusive instant messaging alerts. But strangely, (suspiciously!) there was nary a mention of bathrooms. Which is funny because, as many know, there's almost nothing more disgusting than a workplace restroom, particularly one shared by women. In fact, for a gender that's notorious for fastidiousness and cleanliness, many women are almost as disgusting — if not more than — men when they're at work. But why? And who are they?
