It tops messiness, lateness and people complaining about feeling ill.

The research found that 57 percent of 2,500 Brits, said noisy eaters were the most annoying of their office-workers, the Daily Mail reported.

A further 26 percent said they couldn't stand smelly food while they were trying to work.

"It's interesting that food-related grievances come out on top in the office," David Cherrie, marketing controller, Ainsley Harriott Cup Soup, said.

"Furthermore, we're all too cowardly to confront each other, meaning our working relationships could be suffering over what are basically poor table manners," he said.

Top 10 office gripes are:

1. Noisy eating

2. Messy colleagues

3. Not washing up

4. Smelly food

5. Lateness

6. Not listening

7. Colleagues talking over you

8. Clicking pens

9. Personal phone calls

10. Complaining of illness
