Model Answer 1:
It's hard to think about a person whom I think is "irritating" since I know that as humans we all have our faults - one way or another. However, I'll still go ahead and talk about such a person who could be a bit more bothersome person at times than most other people I know about. 

I work in a multinational company that manufactures computer hardware in Malaysia. In my office, Mr Andrew Peterson is a colleague of mine, and he sometimes appears to be a really annoying person. He is my reporting manager and I know him since the day I started working for this company, which would be almost 4 years by now. 

I admit that Mr Andrew Peterson is a competent employee as he works hard and takes his professional responsibilities very seriously. But his nosiness and over-enthusiasm about other people's personal life are the most irritating issues for many employees like me. As a manager, he is responsible for taking care of the weekly and monthly production and sales while also supervising his team.

Mr Peterson thinks that as a manager he has the right to know everything about his teammates and subordinates. So he interferes with the personal matters of the employees which are extremely intolerable for many of us. He could have been an interesting person had he not shown such undue interest in the affairs of others. He also does not like to listen to his teammates as if they are no good for any creative or innovative ideas. As a manager, he should have been more responsive to his teammates. I believe this is my assessment about this person who I believe could be irritating to some extent.
