Cool as a cucumber

What's the worst thing a co-worker has ever done at your job?

Tell us how you stayed as cool as a cucumber in the office.

THIS MONTH, IN association with Sprite Cucumber, we’re celebrating all the times you stayed as cool as a cucumber. No matter what was happening around you. We want to hear your most amusing disaster stories – and we’ll be sharing the best ones.

Listen. Everyone gets annoyed with their coworkers from time to time. Or a lot.

Having nice coworkers can genuinely make going to work so much more enjoyable, but, much like a sibling rivalry, things often get heated and competitive.

It really hits home that you’re spending 40 hours a week with a random selection of people when someone takes it upon themselves to microwave fish chowder in the tiny communal kitchen.

How dare they? But that’s not even the worst of it.

Remember that one coworker who threw someone’s lunch in the bin, and resulted in this epic Twitter thread? Or the one who put a padlock on their milk to keep it for themselves?

But we want to hear about the most outrageous thing a co-worker has ever done, or something they did that you tried REALLY hard to keep your cool with. Maybe they took credit for your brilliant idea, right in front of you. Or did they reply all on an email bitching about you?

Comment below, tweet us @dailyedge, or email for your tale to be featured. I mean, if nothing else, you got a good story out of it.
