    Don't pick your nose when other people are in the room.

    Don't dye your hair orange and tell people what not to wear.

    Some things I've learned either not to do or dislike when done by others.

    Fart with enthusiastic gusto.
    Discuss religion.
    Discuss politics.
    Diss/discuss co-workers.
    Diss 'The Boss'
    Fart in a silent-but-deadly manner.
    Use overpowering scents.
    Fail to grasp the basics of hygiene and in turn emit overpowering scents.
    Disappear for ten minutes at a time, three times an hour for the purpose of smoking.
    Insist on specific music instead of general radio.
    Inspect the contents of a tissue after clearing ones nose.
    Eating greasy fast-food.
    Claim to be offended.
    Claim credit for others work. This one really annoys me.
    Discuss sport. Endlessly.
    Being late.
    Leaving early and signing the timesheets as if a full day had been worked.

    I have been guilty of flatulating in a stupefying manner, the rest are niggles/annoyances/peeves that ultimately lead me to becoming self employed.

    Dont put headphones on then turn the music up so loud that I can tell which song is playing.

    Dont spend all damn day on the phone speaking your native language and not caring because you know no one else can understand what you're saying.

    also what is with that sound that some people constantly make that sounds like they are sucking snot through their nasal passages(because that's exactly what they're doing)?

    One should probably strive to resist having intimate relations with co workers

    I've learned not to amplify my opinions just because I have a mic in front of me.
    I'm constantly amazed at what comes out of people's mouths just because they do.
    A small cover charge does not make you a wise pundit.

    So to sum up, in this PC, everybody is special world.
    Don't be you
    Don't show any emotion
    Lie through your teeth (to give the response they want, not the one they need).

    happy days

    No.

    Just show some consideration for those who have no choice but to be in a near vicinity to you
    Strive to not be annoying to them

    Never walk near construction equipment without getting the operator's attention so they know you are there.

    Never put your hands or other extremities in a location where they can be crushed or severed.

    Never take shortcuts when it comes to safety of yourself or your team members.
