This is it everybody, your chance to crown the champion of office pet peeves. We've whittled our way down to the final 2 pet peeves over the last few weeks. If you have not been following along, please visit Part 1, Part 2 and Part 3 of the tournament. There have been many strong contenders, but today we celebrate the last two pet peeves remaining.
A quick recap on last week's match-ups:
In a hotly contested battle, Fridge Thievery (the theft of an office mate's lunch/snacks) defeated Dirty Microwave. Dirty Microwave, ever a constant annoyance to the tidiest among us, put up a good fight, but was no match for our pre-tournament favorite. In the match-up of pet peeves that I underestimated by giving low seeds going into this tournamnet, Heavy on the Scent (that coworker who can't leave the house without a dousing of cologne/perfume) beat out Thermostat Teeter-Totter (when no one in the office can agree on a set temperature) by a definitive margin.
Our final matchup will once and for all decide the champion of Office Pet Peeves. This is a big deal, so please, vote wisely, and vote often. You are not restricted to just one vote, so no need to leave and come back wearing a fake mustache and speaking in a cockney accent. Just hit the refresh button and vote again.
We will announce the winner in this space next week, and give some advice on how to handle when this pet peeve occurs in your office.
