Don't! Give yourself a mani/pedi
"I had a boss who would clip his nails at his desk," says Michelle Poteet, who now owns Reclaim Order, a San Antonio-based life-organizing company.

"The next position I was at, the guy across from me would clip his nails at his desk, and to me it is the worst sounding thing in the world."

"It would be one thing if you waited until there was background noise, but it always seemed to me that people, would do this when it was dead silence. Getting rid of a hang nail would be fine, but it is another thing if they are giving themselves a complete manicure."
