Office faux pas that could set you back

If the cliché is true that there's a time and a place for everything, it's also true your hours at work are usually neither the time nor the place for many things.

While society's rules — it's wrong to steal, for example — apply within the workplace, there are lots of behaviors acceptable outside the job that could slow your march up the corporate ladder if you perform them on the job.

What's worse, engaging in these office no-nos could leave you looking for work, as many of the offenses on our list can be considered forms of insubordination.

So, whether it's griping about your job to co-workers or turning your attention to your latest tweet, look to the career killers on our list for advice on what activities to avoid at work.
