- What can I do about a very loud coworker? 10 answers
We work in a large open space. The facilities are pet-friendly, so one person brings a dog to work. The dog sleeps most of the time and when it is sleeping, it snores very loudly.
All the people I interact in the course of my duties are in a different city, so all my work-related communications are done over the e-mail and phone. I am also quite introverted, which limits my social interaction at work (so it is not easy for me to measure how much the snoring bothers all the others).
What can I do?
I already work from home a couple of days a week, but I don't want (and probably can't) telecommute 100%.
I don't want to come across as "uncooperative" or "hostile" or "troublemaker" &c.
EDIT1: I don't interact with customers. My problem is that I find it hard to tune out the snoring (as opposed to the general chatter which, decibel-wise, is probably almost is loud).
EDIT2: I (and a few others!) am now trying to pretend-snore whenever the dog's snoring gets above a certain noise threshold. People are laughing...
