What are some of the quirky bad habits you see in your workplace? I confess to one of these. I am guilty.

Here at Townsquare Media, we have four Radio stations altogether. Somewhere around 16 people total on staff. That can lead to some bizarre and odd habits that I observe daily.

No names will be given. I do like these people after all. This is strictly MY interpretations on personal behavior that I notice.

However, I will admit to my own flaws. I did swipe two delicious ice cream sundaes that were NOT mine the other morning. I don't know why. It was like that devil on my one shoulder was beating me over the head, saying 'EAT THEM.' It was totally unlike me, so I left an apology note. That's the actual note in the picture above.

To begin with:

  • Licking the community coffee spoon!
  • Finishing a pot of coffee and NOT making a new one.
  • NOT clearing the microwave timer. Just press reset.
  • Huge screen TV is on ALL day and no one watches it.
  • Lights left on in empty rooms ALL day.
  • Eating other people's food.

The biggest one for me is the lights on all day. I don't understand how someone walks into a room or several rooms, turns EVERY single light on and then walks out of the room never to return. That goes against everything my parents taught me.
