Don't be a clod
Manners, people! Anita Bruzzese, Gannett, reminds us that manners count at work.
The example she opened with was of a person who worked through lunch and then scarfed pork rinds, rattling the package.
I can think of worse offenses--such as breaking wind or loud phone conversations filled with profanity.
Little things can hurt your career--that seems to be the message. So don't interrupt people, do not text while talking to someone, don't cut people off in a conversation jsut because you are used to short communications.
Don't be too loud!
My sister talked about a woman at her former job who talked all day about her two full-size poodles. This drove people nuts!
