The local numbers covered 1200 Linked In Members and pulled up the following top three peeves:

1. People not taking ownership for their actions 2. Dirty common areas (such as a dirty communal microwave or refrigerator) 3. Constant complainers

Not taking ownership was the top answer worldwide, but there was notable regional variation; Americans seem more stressed than other nations about food being taken from the refrigerator. What’s your pet office peeve? Tell us in the comments.
