Coworker keeps pounding on keyboard making irritating noise all day. Emails from her are so long and verbose that you start snoozing before you can read an entire email. She also documents every single thing you talk with her and IM her and submits it to manager as if she spent time working on it. How to deal with this?

- Darkstore / Eng(>’’)>moreI have the same problem with a brogrammer behind me. Only he uses a mechanical keyboard. I’m waiting on the day for my opportunity to spill a drink on his keyboard.
- Oath BootleggerThat is weird. Let her manager deal with it though. As a manager I have in the past worked with my team mates to help them write more succinct emails. And I have also had people set up time with me to complain about one of my team mates. While I pushed back in front of them, I did work with the team mate to try and help him out. I also took hr’s help in finding ways to better train the person. Tldr- talk to the manager if anything. Bring it up casually and ask if u could do anything to help the manager. He or she might have some background for u about ur colleagues behavior.
