It's Monday and we're back in the office. Oh, joy.

Since the dawn of time, working stiffs have been annoyed by the same basic things day-in and day-out: the awkward and annoying conversations, the technology that never quite works, hearing everyone weigh in on every single item in the news. Of course, it's better to have a job than not, but it doesn't make these daily annoyances any less grating.

So we thought we'd do another quick salute to those topics of conversation everyone who works in an office would prefer to avoid this week. Let us know if you have any to add; we're sure we missed one or two soul-crushers.
