Do you have strange working habits? Do you do something while working which annoys or just plain confuses people around you? Like talk to yourself, keep tapping the table with your fingers or take your shoes off even when you have smelly feet?
I've been working on a pretty big project lately. My work has been doing the XHTML and CSS implementation of a layout for a portal. Today Toni pointed out one of the reasons why I shouldn't be working in an office with other people: I keep talking, swearing and in time to time yelling to myself. Most likely I sound like Chewie.
Toni (Han Solo of this scenario) is used to it, so he doesn't mind much. Or doesn't dare to say if he does. I can believe how it would annoy, confuse and scare anyone else. Besides my terrible swearing would make a sailor blush. As I already stated on Twitter: I'm not office material. I could be hidden to the basement though.
