Why Do Men Clip Their Nails at Work?

I had written about a pet peeve of mine a long time ago, but another popped up and I just have to ask WHY?...why do men clip their nails while at work? WHY?

This action is the most annoying while you're trying to concentrate on a project or talk to someone on the phone. All you hear is...clip...clip...clip and just when you think the person is done, it starts again clip...clip...clip. silence for a few more minutes and yet again...clip...clip...clip It seems the sound just gets louder and then echos throughout the office.

The sound of a metal nail clipper... that clicking sound is enough to drive you insane. Like nails on a blackboard. And where are they putting the clippings? Hopefully in the trash can, but who knows.

Am I alone in thinking that grooming should be done at home?

I noticed that you seem to be working the payperpost thing quite a bit. I was recently injured in an auto accident and find it very difficult to work outside my home. Has payperpost worked for you? Would you recommend any other sites beside payperpost? Thanks for any help you can give.

Yes, it is annoying. I think cleaning under their nails is even more annoying especially when they flick it all over. Yuk!!

Love and Blessings,

Hello Mccafferty,
I do accept a post from Payperpost once in awhile and it has to be something I agree with or believe is a good product. You may confuse some posts that I am promoting something only to bring it to the attention to others.
On the left side column of this blog are ways to make money using your blog. You can check those out. They are real and do pay you to write posts. I have used all of them and that's the reason I have their ads up.
I'm sorry to hear about your accident. I wish you well
Blessings
Andrea

Hi Angelbaby
Nice to see you again. It really IS annoying. Maybe a few men will see this post and realize how others view their habit. You've brought up another grooming habit that's just as bad.

It is annoying and not to mention, gross. Yes men ought to do their grooming at home. They probably want to look as good as we women do while filing or applying makeup at work. Since they can't do those, they probably thought clippers are the next best thing.

Hello anju,
Thanks for stopping by. The whole nail clipping at work boggles my mind. Besides being annoying it is something that should be done at home. I agree with you.

Haha! I never clip my nails, I chew them off like a real man! I think all grooming should be done at home or in the bathroom:)

HI Bobby!!!!
So nice to see you and thanks for stopping by. I always knew you were a REAL Man! ;0) chewing your nails off.
I think most of us are in agreement...this type of grooming should be done at home.
