Ask her about it..That's an involuntary compulsive disorder..I knew a kid growing up that did the same thing..he couldn't stop..There was another kid who used to say something and then repeat it again only in a whisper..So he said everything twice...Someone needs to address the issue..will it be you?..

What a bunch of mean-spirited crybabies, some of you.

I hope she takes up eating beans, broccoli and hardboiled eggs at lunch everyday, and, I hope she starts dumping a half of a bottle of cheap, stinky perfume on herself everyday...you'll end up wishing she was only clearing her throat.

She probably has allergies or chronic post-nasal drip, and the snot is constantly draining down her throat and trying to get in her lungs. It is unpleasant and aggravating.

Perhaps someone in your office with some decorum and care can suggest some OTC med that can help clear up her problem.

Something so trivial and yet you think of all sorts of ways to 'get even'.

Its called 'idiosyncrasy', its very anoying for surrounding ppol, very distracting. We have seen it all on someone at some point at some degree. Someone giving a lecture, constantly clicking his/her pen. Some women constantly playing with there hair.
Very distracting for others.
However the person in question doesnt notice it anymore due its intergration in its representationsystem. It works on a subconsciousness level now. Like walking, you dont think about that anymore.

There is a way 2 break this habit but by judging the way you write about her i am sure you wouldnt be up for the task.

However.. I will give you this.
Make her aware of the fact that she does this, because she isnt.

This sounds like a "Tic" to me.

Simple vocal tics include coughing, throat clearing, grunting, sniffing, snorting, and barking. ... Early diagnosis and treatment of TS are most important.

They can be caused by a number of things including: Social disorders, Tourette's Syndrome, ADHD .....

You can Google "vocal tics" and find a wide variety of information.

Chances are, this may not be her fault.

I use to work right next to a guy who did the same thing. Drove me up a fucking wall. Nothing I said to him worked. Finally everyone one that worked in the room with us came up with something. Every single time he cleared his throat we would all say at the same time," God bless you". He finally caught on to why were doing this and it happened less often. Maybe give it a try.

Everytime she clears her throat everyone else in earshot does the same.
