Have you ever worked with someone who absolutely will not apologize, no matter how clearly he or she was at fault? It might not be stubbornness. Many people avoid saying they're sorry at work, working under the assumption that their mea culpa will come off as an admission of weakness. The tricky thing is, they're not entirely wrong.
With so many people working in cramped cubicles, sharing offices and work stations; it’s relatively easy to find yourself annoying your neighboring colleagues. This happens often without knowledge, but over time the things that you initially found endearing about your co-workers begin to irritate you too. Those little habits that you stick to daily at the office are now causing your co-workers to avoid you, but you may not realize this at first. In fact, while you may be complaining about the annoyances of your co-workers, chances are they are also complaining about you around the office cooler without your personal knowledge.
