Pat. Was given the choice to quit or to step down from Director, and function as 'just another nurse'. Still behaves as if she's the Director. The Penultimate Condescending Frau.
There's is this woman at work and she thinks she is so very. But I am always like, as if.
She then goes, she goes, she goes, whatevers, and I am all like in her face with, don't go there.
And she's all, Oh I'll go where I want
And then I am, not where if I can help it.
And then she's like all H/R on my ass and I am like whatevers to her.
I hate this guy at work.
He is always complaining and criticizing every co-worker's way of working on projects.
He wants to run the office but has not talent or skills for that, so he basically sabotages everyone and everything, and then comes in as a heor to save the day and he does it in front of the manager.
Now, he has told everyone at work, except the manager, that he'll definitely get the job when they announce the opening of office director.
I hate this guy at work he is such a little jerk.
OK I come in, punch in and go down and get changed. Then I eat my breakfast. And he's all like, "You're phone is ringing."
I tell him, "Then answer it." I am not about to get indigestion for him.
Then he gets all pouty like it's my fault the phone is ringing.
So I go up and log into my computer and check my email and he's like, "You have a client waiting."
And I'm like, "Well there not going anywhere."
And well you get the idea.
But do I complain to the boss about his bitching at me. But heaven forbid, I ask him to punch out for me if I leave early.
My manager. Im not even going to start mentioning all the reasons why or I'll work myself into a rage. I just hope Im moved into another team soon. Although I suspect everybody else in my team is dying to get away from him too.
Apart from my manager, I'm indifferent to everyone else. I think most of the others feel the same way about me and each other. It's one of the benefits of working in a team that doesn't have a single person under 30. We have lives, we don't want to be bffs and have drinks on Friday together. We just want to do a good job and then have nothing to do with each other until we're all back in the office again. This team is the most professional and harmonious I've ever worked with and yet our manager is so awful I have no doubt people will start jumping ship.
R1... you used "Penultimate" jokingly, correct?
I work with this queeny little bitch who thinks he's hot shit. He uses the word penultimate incorrectly. I dont correct him so he'll continue to look like an idiot when he uses it.
They like "penultimate" because it has an extra syllable. Never mind its actual meaning.

Whose the most condenscentious one, than.
The owner (it's a small business). A recovering alcoholic (very recent). I liked him better when he was a drunk.
This total asshat who sits across from me with this constant smug expression, know it all attitude, and general shit eating demeanor because he's the new guy and all the girls just LOVE him (because he's so cute! And he has the cutest goatee!), when in reality he has no idea what the fuck we do or how to do it, and all his questions do is slow us down to a dead crawl.
Seriously dude - just fuck off already.
How can I possibly narrow it down to one?
Nicole. Not so much hate as I'm wary of her. She's vying for a position that would make her my director. She'd cut a bitch if she had to, and then throw 'em under the bus just to make sure. I just don't trust her.
Myself, for having to come do this every day.
Wow R14. I have to agree. That's how I feel too. Never thought of it like that.
No one at my current job, but my last job....o man no question: Anne, the bookkepper. She was a miserable fat old cunt who fucked up my paperwork and I ended up having to pay extra taxes at the end of the year. She was so shitty at her job, always fucking things up and then lying about it and blaming me. On the third time she got caught in a lie about me I told the owner I was done with her and vowed NEVER to speak to her again outside of what was absolutely necessary. After nine months of having to share an office with someone who so clearly despised her, she quit.
There is this waitress named Vera at the hash house I work at and she's all the time spilling drinks and getting orders wrong. Yesterday I went ahead and told her to kiss my grits.
My boss - stupid entitled republican douchebag
My employees. Bunch of idiots. Seriously, they are one step above retarded. One recently asked me to fax something to her and told me to put color ink in my fax so she would get a color copy on her end. Another one didn't know the meaning of the word "average."
I don't usually hate dumb people. It's not their fault. But this group is arrogant too and that combo is lethal. Cocky morons are infuriating.
We had this woman at work with a voice like a Foghorn, except flat. The sound carried up to half a mile, through walls. And that was even before she raised her voice, which she often did.
Short fat bald guy who could be charming but screamed and yelled at people at the drop of a hat -- underlings and peers who had not done anything wrong. Finally got fired after too many fights with too many people. Refused to accept any responsibility for his dismissal, claiming it was a conspiracy. Have encountered him as a freelancer and he is arrogant as ever.
There's a woman at work who barely hides her contempt for me, rarely makes eye-contact and never returns my hellos. Our brief and random interactions (we don't work together closely but I have paperwork to give her every few weeks) are always awkward; she puts on a flat-affect face and monotone voice and speaks in short, clipped sentences. I've caught her giving me barely disguised eye rolls on a few occasions. I know she's not like this with everyone as I see her being chatty and friendly with others.
No idea what her deal is. I'm wondering if it's homophobia since I'm the only out gay person in the office. Just started this job a few months ago and everyone else is nice and treats me with respect.
I hated my alcoholic boss who every day when he left said loudly "I;m going to go home and get drunk!" proudly. But he didn't like me cause he'd fuck up all day and I'd come in at night and have to clean up his mistakes.
I got in a car accident and came in the next day woozy and he accused me of being drunk. Even had HR accompany me to Cedars and wanted access to my medical records.
Needless to say I was sober, didn't even have as much as an advil in me. I sued them and won.
Allen - total tool who wants power without having to work for it. Aspergers and does not respond to social and verbal cues .
[quote]Even had HR accompany me to Cedars and wanted access to my medical records.
Un-fucking-believeable. Congratulations on your win. This is why, when the Revolution comes, HR trolls will be amongst the first up against the firing squad wall.
My last boss. An utterly self-focused preening queen (used to tweet pics from the first class airport lounge - I kid you not) who thought he was alpha shit managerially, but clients saw right through him. So when he got the flick, he went into shock.
There were a number of others on the management team who also had the emotional maturity of tadpoles, but he was the circus master.
An old Maid named Janice. The most miserable bitch that ever breathed air. Her job was her life. Stabbed everyone she came in contact with in the back.
Guy who looks and talks like Cletus on the Simpsons.
Spends all day loudly yakking about his tin hat conspiracy theories and how liberals are brain damaged.
One of the most professionally irresponsible people I have ever met, but always ranting about his politics of personal responsibility.
Spends all day running his mouth and not doing any work, but he is seemingly protected by good ol' boy cronyism.
Today he made a joke about how he was going to the toilet to squeeze out some Obama dolls.
The entire legal department for the usual reasons one hates lawyers.
36-year-old woman who thinks she's a hot teenage girl. Sucks up outrageously to male management and leaves colleagues holding the bag on projects. Screams to get her own vanity initiatives budgeted although they do not help the business. Has toxic, loud fag-hag relationship with office's gay man -- they alternate between sycophantic buttering up and vicious fights. Truly awful!
I work for a manager who is most likely a sociopath. All the gossip in the office is started and perpetuated by her. She continuously lies to other employees about her staff, mainly to get a reaction and to have some entertainment. Her entire life is centered around her job, but she runs her mouth more than doing any quantifiable work. Unfortunately, most of the people in my office are dumb and poor judges of character, so they believe most of her bullshit until it's too late. She's successfully fired just about anyone she perceives as a threat, since she is very cunning, at times charming, and knows how to sweet talk the boss to do her bidding. She is pure evil. I'm the only one in the office to ever confront her about her antics, and it led to an extended feud where she lied to other employees about me to get a coalition of people to hate me. When that didn't work, she made stuff up about the quality of my work. I'm wondering how common this kind of behavior is in the workplace? I'm looking for a job now and do not want to meet anyone like her again.
Rebecca G. at Pink Ribbon central. Butt-smooching, no-talent asshole who looks like a worm. The only time she's nice to anyone is when she needs something. Really awful person who will step on your FACE to climb up the ladder. But looks like people have got her number: she's stalled out where she is now. She can only fool people for so long.
My supervisor. Kept on for years to avoid a huge lawsuit if they fired her. Does a grand total of two hours of work everyday, while the rest of us deal with the public, which is a nightmare. Plans her vacations and shops online in her office. Attends useless meetings. I hate when I see her invoices or reservations on the central printer.
I hate her assistant more though, who really serves no purpose other than doing two hours of work each day so my supervisor doesnt need to do four. Totally oversteps his boundaries as her assistant to do nothing. Selfish male cunt with an attitude problem and a Napoleon complex.
This bitchy little queen with horrendous breath.
Our bitchy secretary. She used to be on staff and got canned because she had the worst attitude of anyone who'd ever worked in our department, and now her sole mission in life is to make others' lives hell. Need something? She'll throw a phone number at you and tell you to do it yourself. Are we passing around a card to sign for someone whose mother died? She'll sneer and swat it off of her desk with a "no THANK you." Say good morning to her? She'll grimace and snort and walk away. And she can't be fired because the director just doesn't want to deal with her. I wish she'd fall in a ditch.
Not working now (summer college classes) but there was an old bitch that worked in my office that drove me up a fucking wall.
She sat two cubes over but I could hear her…and she just complained about everything, all day, every day, day in, day out. She was never positive, was mean to her daughter on the phone.
She chose to be short with me one day when I was helping her and I held my hand up and said, "Oh, no. You may use that tone of voice with other people, but I don't do abuse. When you're ready to have a calm discussion about this, let me know." She was cordial to me after that.
Ugh, even discussing her makes me mad. Nasty old cunt.
A rapist and a royalist who needs to tell other off
I posted this on the 'shit you hate' thread but feel like venting again. I have a pair of 20 something co-workers who think they are auditioning for SNL. All day long. Monday through Friday. (Think Jimmy Fallon and Horatio Sans cracking themselves up for hours on end.)
They yell out the same joke of the day to each other, throughout the day. And think they are hi-larious.
They love to have nicknames for everyone in the office. And they LOVE practical jokes. (The latest one was putting every unused office chair, 20 of them, into one guys office while he was on vacation. When he returned and opened his office door, there was a mini-mountain of chairs blocking his entry. (Eye roll)
Sure, it's fun to have upbeat co-workers and do stupid things NOW AND THEN. But this is a regular occurrence off and on throughout the day. And most of the people in the office think these guys are just a hoot.
I swear if forced to pick between one extreme or the other, I'll take a co-worker who never talks any day.
My closet-case boss. Wants to be seen as progressive and "gay-friendly" by colleagues and understaff, but in command of the office and ahead of his detractors, who are quietly but surely homophobic.
Married with three kids, rich and successful, yet secretly online (A4A, Craigslist) hooking up to get his ass fingered and fucked. Thinks all gays are educated, DINKs and rich. Doesn't understand why marriage equality is a big deal, after all, he made another choice.
Oh, yeah: And Nancy Brinker. Just go away, BITCH!
Every. Last. One. Of. Them.
I hate my gay boss, the Andy Cohen of my marketing group, who throws "gay" in everyone's face and supports all the women and straight guys in the group but not really any of the other gay men.
Cause there's only one official Gay, right?
I worked with a woman who was the female version of the Dilbert character "Topper". She constantly had to one-up everyone.
God, R19, I just had a coworker ask if she sends a color fax, will it be received in color at the other end? I think her tattoo ink is affecting her brain.
Marketing manager by the name of Jason. Always walks reallllly fast because he's sooooo busy. Never knows what the hell he's talking about, and gets creamed by the VP every other meeting. (I think the VP enjoys this and it's the reason Jason still has his job.) Could be a decent-looking guy, but the yellow teeth, gut, and smarmy, insincere manner combine to make him repellent. Sad.
It used to be Ginny in billing. The complaining, the work avoidance…Oy vey.
How was I to know you could actually DIE from restless leg syndrome?
I had the same expereince as R22, only I was stuck having the bitch as my "supervisor" (not in title, just in attitude). I never thought the phrase "dripping with contempt" could be literal until I heard the way my lovely co-worker spoke to me on my first day. She was furious that my predecessor/her BFF left the company, with no notice, for a higher-paying job. I will never understand why people try to make others miserable when they should be spending that energy on finding another job or negotiating for a better salary.
"There's a woman at work who barely hides her contempt for me"
Maybe you forgot to wash your hands upon exiting the restroom?
my colleague the low talker....she is bats. Convinced people have been looking thru her cube, messing w/computer, etc. (Went to HR to tell my concerns, later found out others have, too). She is always making passive agressive comments. I think of her as a "bunt" (bitch + cunt)....
I'm not going to call her misogynist names because I believe she is a nice person outside of work, but there is a lady who infuriates me with her endurance for re:re:re:re:re: emails. She will never take 'no' for an answer, never accept my explanation for why the computer system did what it did, and never makes her staff accountable for their fuck-ups. She answers every email response with another question or comment and it goes on and on. Oh, and with many CC:'s too. I give up after a while, she wears me down. The plus side is that everyone in my company realizes she's an airhead.
She did one response though that lit me up so bad, within seconds after she sent it and I read it I dialed her extension. She must have seen my caller ID because I seriously called her within seconds and she had to still be in front of her computer. She didn't answer, which is good because I was going to lay into her. Thankfully, I had a few minutes to cool down.
Again, I don't think she is a bad person, I just think she was promoted to a position of incompetence and doesn't know how to deal with her staff's obvious lack of work engagement.
concern troll. "are you feeling ok?? are you having a bad day?? i'm sorry, i just don't understand...are you having a hard time communicating??" tries to make me look fragile and difficult with fake solicitude.
I got laid off five weeks ago and I'm so glad. I hated my job and I really hated my coworkers.
The worse was this privileged white guy who spoke like he was from the ghetto. He used to pronounce something "suntin" and he was a total dick.
Then there was this other guy who used to pick his nose and flick his boogers. I would always look over at his desk and catch him doing this until one day he looked over and saw me looking at him. It was awkward. Without thinking, I sort of smiled and winked hoping he would laugh it off. Instead, he tormented me from that day forward.
Then there was the office "goth" chick who had never heard of Bauhaus or Sisters of Mercy. She just wore black all the time and talked about her love of rats and acted like a cunt.
I never thought I would appreciate being laid off from a job but that was a blessing.
This bitch at work who snapped me about someone not calling her back, just because she works for one of my trustees, like it's my fucking fault. And it hadn't even been a day! Maybe she's out sick for fuck's sake. I offer to send her her email and she says thanks, like you better!
My bipolar boss who one day punches a file cabinet so hard it leaves a dent and the next day appears despondent and stares out the window for long periods of time. I suppose I should be more charitable toward the mentally ill but I'd rather not have someone so unstable have power over my job.
This thread is nothing but cubefag drama.
Straight guys in offices with doors make plenty of drama too. Fights, backstabbing, and blatant takeovers of other peoples' turf.
