While many of us have been working from home for over a year now, some are getting ready to head back to the office-- where we'll no doubt have to deal with the Most Annoying Coworker in Minnesota.

When you think about it, our coworkers are the people with whom we all spend a LOT of time-- sometimes we spend MORE time with them than we do with our actual families. And one of the many things the pandemic took away from us in Minnesota last year was the ability to actually work with our coworkers in the same space.

But now that many businesses, schools, and other employers are slowly getting us ready to head back to the office, job site, or classroom, we could certainly be subjected to some behaviors by our coworkers that one might describe as annoying. And that fact that many of us have gotten used to working solo while at home might even make some of those behaviors seem worse.

It's with that in mind that this new survey from Zippia took a look at just WHICH behaviors by our coworkers are the most annoying both here in Minnesota and in every state. According to Zippia, they surveyed "1,210 workers across the U.S. to better understand why coworkers struggle to coexist. It turns out basically everything from how much you talk to how you eat your lunch can be a source of annoyance for your colleagues," the survey noted.

So just which coworker behavior do we think is the most annoying here in the Land of 10,000 Lakes? According to Zippia, that'd be those coworkers who are just plain bad at their jobs. We've all had to deal with THAT coworker, haven't we?

But that's not the most annoying coworker behavior overall, though. Zippia says the number-one most annoying coworker behavior in the U.S. is coworkers who are loud-- really loud. Loud coworkers are then followed by coworkers who are lazy and those who love to spread the office gossip, ranking second and third in Zippia's new survey.

Annoying coworker behavior is so pervasive, Zippia says, that nearly two-thirds of us (about 57%) have considered leaving their job because of a coworker's annoying behavior! Check out just which annoying coworker behavior is number-one in each state HERE.

While most of us have had to put up with some annoying coworker behavior from time to time, THESE people probably haven't. In fact, they probably don't even have to work anymore. Because they're the Richest People in Each State. Keep scrolling to see who it is here in Minnesota, and in every other state!
