Talking about what you’d do if you won the lottery can be a fun workplace conversation. Some offices take the dream one step further by pooling money together to buy multiple lottery tickets, with the understanding that winnings will be split among participants.
Do you often find yourself so overloaded with work you can barely keep all of your projects straight? Do you agree to take on additional projects even though you already have way too much on your plate?

From smelly cubicle lunches to rash emails that come across as insulting, even the most considerate office professional can anger a fellow colleague.
