I am dealing with this right now. A co-worker.....constant throat clearing. I am going bonkers!!! For those who said "ignore it" that is easier said than done. It is like once you become extremely aware of it, that is nearly impossible. It is like nails on a chalkboard! I have been doing the headphones route. But this is sometimes not practical because my boss will be asking for my attention and I am unable to hear her, until I see her. It is so annoying! Any kind of critical thinking task that requires much attention is blown.

Coughing season is upon us. I can't tell if my legal assistant is sick or just passive aggressive.
