A recent research in Britain has revealed that the average office worker is short tempered or angry at his work desk nearly two times in a day. They have called it desk rage.

Some of the possible reasons are clients' bad behavior, computer crashes and a colleague robbing them of credits.

Nearly 42% of Brits are at their impatient worst on a Monday. Nearly 51% are upset over who makes tea at work, and not having sufficient time for lunch.

Those who talk loudly or disturb others are a source of potential tension.

'British adults are renowned for their work hard, play hard attitude, which means that when they are in the office, they are used to coping with heavy workloads and lots of pressure. When working in this type of highly stressed environment, smaller niggles can get heightened and appear to be a big deal. And on a Monday, many people will be tired and grumpy after a long weekend, which adds to the likelihood of them blowing a fuse if someone skips the tea round or the printer stops working,' said a spokesman from the agency that commissioned the survey.
