I prefer to work with headphones on and I listen to various types of music
and Bill O'Reilly and Sean Hannity during the day. The headphones I use
cover the ears completely so not to annoy the guy who shares my office. I
tend to get distracted by random noise, so that is why I use the headphones.
But as for annoying habits of co-habiters of the cube and/or office, the guy
I share a room with tends to eat his lunch while writing code for the
database he is working on. Most of the time it does not bother except for
the days when the food is giving off a particularly strong odor.
