Let’s face it: Even our dream jobs can be full of exasperating, tiring, and downright infuriating moments. While certain instances are just part of the office drill, others can bring you to the tip of insanity.

You know, like these:


1. When you run into the co-worker you’ve been avoiding in the elevator.

2. When your workplace frenemy (yes, the one whose father was college buds with the CEO) gets the promotion you wanted.

3. When you work your you-know-what off to finish a report by Friday—and realize it’s not due until next week.

4. When someone swipes the last donut from the breakroom. THE MAPLE BAR!

5. When that co-worker you may or may not have been loudly complaining about walks by your cube.

6. When you’ve been working on an awesome idea, and your co-worker presents the same thing to your boss.

7. When you get assigned to that client team you’ve been dying to be part of—along with the one co-worker you can’t stand.

8. When Brenda from accounting answers the phone. Every. Single. Time.

9. When your boss asks you to work late—the one night you have tickets to the big game.
