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 here's a 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.
