I would like to add do not eat food that is not yours.  Although it hasn't happened to me at work, it has happened with past flatmates and of course when I used to live with my brothers. Laughing out loud

#1 The food thing is VERY important. I worked in a large office with 70 people and there was a constant battle of someone always drinking my drinks I would bring in.

Replacing things or at least noting that something needs replacing would be a big one for me as well. No one wants to deal with the stress of not being able to do what they need to because the equipment isn't there.

People eating you food have never been a problem for me (even though I've worked in a pretty large office with 250 employees), do people actually do that?

But one thing I can't believe is not on the list is perfume! Please don't drench yourself in perfume before leaving for work, a little easy breezy citrusy stuff is fine but if you go heavy on that 90's nightclub perfume you will give me a headache. So please don't.

Oh that is a big one for me too! Perfume and other strong smells are major migraine triggers for me
