Yahoo! Hotjobs recently published the article, The 6 Most Annoying Coworkers: Are you one?

Ms. Germaphobe will greet you in the hallway and make every effort to scale the wall so she will not have to breath the same air as you. She will also open doors with her feet and then run through the door before it slaps her in the face. Ms. G is so annoying that I would like to walk up behind her and rub my body all over her and yell "COOTIES"!!!!!!!
