      I think of this every time someone uses that expression! I don’t want to sleep like a baby, I want to sleep like a log (or my deaf dog).

    I’d like to add #10 to that obnoxious coworker list – the talker. Talks, talks, talks, tells the same story 100 times, won’t let you out of a conversation no matter how many times you tell them you are late to a meeting, need to go to the bathroom, are busy . . .
