Are office coffee and tea rounds a thing of the past?

Are you the type of person who is always up for making a round of teas and coffees for your colleagues at work? If you are then you seem to be in a minority with most people at work claiming to dislike the unspoken rule of always offering to make teas and coffees for fellow workers.

A research project spoke to around 2000 adults and found out that four out of five find small talk with colleagues in the office ‘irritating’, especially if it involves football or children. Talking about the weather, or asking someone how their weekend, were also listed among annoying subjects, according to the study by Hyper Recruitment Solutions.

Most of those surveyed said they had experienced rudeness at work, including being sworn at, reprimanded in front of colleagues or personal remarks about their clothes.

Half of those asked admitted to avoiding making themselves a brew at work so they don’t have to make one for colleagues. The report said: ‘While employees are direct on some issues, they’d rather avoid the situation completely than feel obliged to make a brew for other.’
