The commute. (Hope to ditch this soon anyways, well prior to retiring.)

I'm stuck with mine for the foreseeable future: hate it.

Sharing a public bathroom with stinky co-workers. (Ditto, when I can work from home.) I think we are over planned capacity in this building; it used to all be individual offices, and much has been converted to cubicals in recent years.

Sharing bathrooms sucks anyway.

Meetings. I absolutely loathe our faux-cheerleading meetings. I hate being told how much fun we are all having now. I hate being told how far behind we are. The schedules are bogus; what do you expect?

The cube-farm-conference-call-frenzy is the worst. When 6 people all in adjoining cubes are on different conference calls it gets VERY annoying.

Getting up at a particular time every weekday. There are days when I'd just like to lay in bed, or even just lounge in my pajamas, for an extra hour, darn it.

I get up just in time to miss the worst traffic hour. If I snooze even 5 mintues too late it takes me 15 extra minutes to get to work.

Mean co-workers. Stress tends to bring out the worst in people. And a few of them started from a pretty low place before the stress was applied. :-]

I get sick of co-workers telling me I'm mean when I point out how stupid they are. I get very sick of people who can't figure a thing out and depend on the good will of others/the Peter Principle to keep their jobs.
