    An interesting twist would be to recognise whether or not you were one of the co-workers that everyone wanted to strangle.

    Idea

    what do they do or not do that makes you want to strangle them? I would like to see if this is just me.


    We have an attitude of "that's not my job", or "THAT"S my job", I am not perfect (don't tell them that). But i would like for our group to go into a troubled patient like a team. "This is what we will do for you, I am sorry, but we messed up. Let us take care of that for you." Quit pointing fingers and just get the job done.

    I've come accross about 5 of these people in about 10 different jobs :D

    You wonder if it's you or them ... its simple ... if others also have problems with them then you know its them :D

    They are usually ...
    too self-opinionated :angry:
    too bossy :finger:
    or do not care about the job as much as you.

    Try to make a friend out of them ... life is easier that way.
    There are 10 kinds of people, those that understand binary, and those that don't!

    When my daughter started law school, she was told that every class has an a$$hole. If you haven't identified that person in two weeks, it's YOU.

    I thought that was a pretty astute observation.

    Just shake your head and ignore them. You can't change them and they probably won't go away on their own. Think of them as an annoying rash.

    There is a good book I read (but I'll cant remember the title!!!) that gave advice on how to deal with different workplace personality types (there were 7 different types I believe -The Victim, The Whiner, The Control Freak etc.)--I found it helpful, and funny.
    (I work alone-so I don't get on anyones nerves but my own):)
    Chimperial Optical-what a great place to work!
