I have this one coworker who gets on my nerves so much. He always accuses me of doing something wrong (I’ve always had a good reputation and I always get my work in on time, yet he acts like I’m the most untrustworthy person) and constantly micromanages my work, even though he’s a team member and NOT my boss. I find the way he speaks to me to be somewhat condescending and like I’m always being blamed or doing something wrong. I could only speculate as to why (is it bc I’m one of the only white people in my dept? because I’m a girl? because I’m young?) but since technically speaking he’s not doing anything that’s wrong I can’t say anything about it. He always has an answer for everything; when I say “I do xyz this way” he always says “oh no you shouldn’t do it that way, do it this way because it’s better”. ALWAYS. I feel like I’m going to LOSE IT if I have to deal with this every day for the rest of my life. My coworker in the cube next to me has even remarked about how much he tries to spread blame on me!
When he comes to my desk to “blame” me for something, I usually just tune out and nod my head until he stops talking. Then I turn back to my computer and he just STANDS THERE and won’t leave. Arghhh!! Stop poking your nose in other people’s business and for pete’s sake, trust your coworkers to do their own work!!
Anyone else have specific coworkers that really grate on your nerves?
