Do you have someone at work that you loathe?
What do (did) about it? If it was your subordinate - how did you treat them? Your boss - how did you put up with them? A co-worker - what was it about them that made them unbearable.
Spill -- I need to feel better about my own situation with a "person that I loathe."

The fake orange bitch, Stacy.
Fake orange tan, ratty-ass extensions, fake nails, fake laugh and her whole "oh, I'm so cute!" bullshit.
I ignore her and bide my time. Only 6 months and she'll be gone.
(And I'm not the only one who can't stand her, either. People in our last meeting were amazed how much we got done since she wasn't there doing her usual, "let me be all cutesy now" schtick.)

Not now (I'm self employed) but I did have a true boss from hell once. I negotiated a lateral swap with someone who wanted to move to my department and I was happy enough to move to hers. I thought maybe it was just a personality conflict between the boss and me but the person who replaced me had the same experience as I did as the next one. After that the boss was "relocated", happily far away from me.

In our office, we have somewhat of a conundrum. The Operations Manager - basically, our boss - is a sweetheart of a guy. Not a hardass at all. We are all responsible adults, but if we're late - no problem. If we need time off, no problem. We all joke around, have a really good time, and he really welcomes the friendly sometimes overly boisterous work environment. But bottom line, we all do our work.
Problem is, he is completely INEPT at his job. He has no business being in charge and handling the level of work that our office is responsible for. And when for the 10th time a day that he asks how to scan something to his computer - or conducts a job interview when all he does is talk about himself (then proceeds to hire people who are completely not qualified for the position)- or asks the most basic questions about things that he really ought to know - he really begins to get on the rest of our nerves to the point of loathing. His ineptitude also results in our jobs being made that much more difficult. Yet we all 'like' him and genuinely feel bad that we all want him fired, too.

My boss is too weak to control her own staff. She delegates all responsibility to her second-in-command, a woman who is sluggish, rude, and petty. The second-in-command has it in for me - she has ever since I was hired five years ago - and so the boss now does as well. I plan on leaving soon.

My boss. It was so bad that I quit last week, after only 2 months on the job.
I was hired on as second in command, and there were quite a few red flags during the interview process. I chose to ignore them and hope for the best because the pay was so good. She turned out to be the most bitter, paranoid, hateful person I've ever worked for or with. Utterly miserable, and not happy until everyone on the staff was miserable too. She treated our staff like dirt, and the higher ups at the corporation have been wondering why the turnover rate at our account was so high and why we're chronically short-staffed.
My manager was supposed to be at work at 7am, but wuld routinely breeze in hours late. If one of the staff was 10 minutes late though, she'd launch into a long-winded speech about how they weren't professionals and were always letting her down. It was always about her personally, never the account. Miserable bitch, I hope she's enjoying doing my work along with her own. I requested an exit interview from the district manager, but received no reply. He's new and inexperienced, and probably doesn't want to know what's really happening at this account. It's his problem now.

This man at work I absolutely loathe.
Hate with a passion of a thousand suns!
He is a racist, homophobic, misogynistic , repulsive jack-ass.
EVery word that comes out of his mouth reveals his stupidity.
He's a Republican, to boot.
I dont talk to him and don't acknowledge his presence.

When I was young I had a supervisor who was completely awful and hated by all in our department. But she was a "loyal" employee of many years when many were deserting the sinking ship that was our company. (It had filed for bankruptcy and was on it's last legs. Thank you, coke habit of the CEO). Also, I'm pretty sure she fucked an executive back in the day.
Figuring that one big fuck you before I walked out the door was a good idea, I went to the magazine stand next door and plucked all the subscription cards out of as many magazines as possible. I filled them out with "Bill Me Later" checked. I mean, EVERYTHING. From skank porn to Antiques & Collectibles to biker mags and beyond. I intentionally filled it in with a nickname that she hated and even snuck into H.R. after hours to get her home address from her file. Then fortunately (or unfortunately) stuck around long enough to see her reaction when they all started arriving. She knew it was one of us, but she didn't want to admit it was happening.
Very childish of me, of course, yet I have very little remorse over it all these years later.

I treat work as work and treat work colleagues as work colleagues, meaning that it is not my job to love or loathe them, but merely to find a way to work with them more or less agreeably.

Magazines save cards sent for subscriptions in case someone claims they didn't order. They send photocopy to person for confirmation. Be on the safe side, type the name and address. The recipient might know your handwriting.

That's so funny, R12. Years ago, I went one step further and ordered up things like gingsu knives, a statue of Elvis, a Princess Diana imitation ring, Hebrew lessons, to name a few. That bill me later thing was so handy...good times.

I worked for a company where a Director I did not report to made my life hell. One day I got a call from a recruiter who asked me if I was interested in a postion. As he was describing the job I asked if that was at XXXXX (where I work). He said yes and asked how I knew, I told him because it was my job. I asked him who was the hiring manager and sure enough it was this director. I called up my manager and put in my notice right then and there. I had complained over and over that this guy was making my life hell (he would drap me into meetings and put me on the spot about things I knew nothing about, assign me work even though I did not report to him and had nothing to do with his area, he would walk over to my peers and lean in a whisper in their ears all they while staring at me while he did it, then I would get IM's from them asking what was up and why he did not like me.)
After I put in my notice I gave them 1 week (mind you I had no new job to go to, I hated this man that much) on the beginning of my last week we had a staff meeting and then went around the room at the end asking if anyone had anything to add. I said nothing so he looked at me and said "well incase no one knows XXXX has resigned and only gave us one week notice." At that point I had had it. So when another manager asked me where I was going I said "no where I don't have another job, XXXX has made it unbearable to work here, he undermined my authority, assigned me work despite me not reporting to him, would talk negatively about me infront of me to my co-workers, and commissioned a job search for my postion while I thought I was gainfully employed. He sat there shocked with his mouth open and I looked at him and said, Close your mouth the flies are getting in.
After that I had a meeting with the CIO - he asked me to stay and I told him I could not with XXXX there and I didn't see them firing him. He asked me if everything I said was true and I told him to talk to my peers, talk to the recruiter, ask anyone involved.
I found a new job in two weeks, and I love it here. I found out a few months later the Director was let go, Ding dong the witch was dead.

Worked with a sociopath once. I don't mean that as hyperbole -- she was an actual, real live sociopath. She had a lot of people fooled, including the supervisor. When I quit, people were clamoring to transfer to my office because everyone loved the supervisor so much, and one lady told me multiple times she was so glad I was leaving because she was going to take my place.
She did. She was miserable, and a hateful little bitch about it later when I ran into her. I got the impression that she dealt with her coworker problem by becoming bitter and stubborn and nasty.

I got even with a cunt co-worker by having a gypsy curse placed on her. Before the curse could be placed, the gypsy told me I needed a hair sample of the person that I wanted to curse. So, I got the hair sample out of the hairbrush the cunt kept in her desk at work. It was so easy! And the gypsy did the rest. Best 50 bucks I ever spent! :)

My assistant. He has that ubiquitous shaved head with the dead rat on top gay haircut and he's fat. Ever since he got a boyfriend, he's been packing on the weight.
He and his office buddies chat at his desk right outside my office and the word "like" is used so much that soon, I'm going to have to stick a fork in someone's eye.

The cunt I worked for "owned" the firm; it was small, 10 people. Actually, dad "owned" the firm. She was working on her third or fourth Masters from Columbia and would drag her ass into the office at 5 or 6 pm and acted like the day just began FOR EVERYBODY. She got up at 5 am, you got up at 5 am.
When she finished studying on weekends, she caught up on work, which meant you were catching up on work... answering client emails that were a week old, doing busy work that she demanded or really working because a client really did need something and bypassed the cunt.
My former colleague recommended me for the job. I was supposed to be an addition because the client base grew. He was with the firm 5-years. He quit one month after I started. They got into a fight when she ordered him back from vacation to go to another country to meet with a client because she couldn't because of school.
The cunt then turned to me and i didn't take her shit.
I lasted five months. I was fired before I could quit. It turns out in the three months after I was fired, there was a 100% turnover. I think she fired everyone as soon as she had a replacement lined up. Everyone else worked there for 3 or more years.
