Jennybee224:  yes!!!! Oh honey between bartending and teaching and doing corporate makeup artistry I’ve worked with some really insane, ignorant, and infuriating people. I learned that you can drive a sane person crazy, but you can never drive a crazy person sane.

yes, I once worked with a woman who was so cruel and rude to me that the bosses of the company forbid her to speak to me or interact with me on any level. Only 30 employees worked there. Just let that sink in.

Jennybee224:  I’ve definitely had one of those. She was probably the worst person I’ve ever known. Thought very highly of herself, was mean (to me and the students we taught), had control issues, and was generally impossible to communicate with. Eventually they promoted me over her, and she decided to seek employment elsewhere. She seriously ruined a lot of experiences for me though. I’ve always been known to be a team player and very easy to get along with, but there was no way to make that happen with her try as I might. 

sarahalthea:  “You can drive a sane person crazy, but you can never drive a crazy person sane.” Love that! So true!

No not a co-worker per se but rather a boss. She was evil and psychotic, micromanaging and loved to play psychological torture games with me. Even though the job was great otherwise, I left just to get away from her and escape her clutches. On the day I quit, she called me into her office to try to mess with me just a little bit more, by telling me what she really thought of my haircut. LOL! True story! 

 

Now I don’t have a co-worker I hate, but I do passionately hate my job with every fiber of my being. But the good news is that since the WeddingBee redesign turned into a train wreck, I have channeled the time I used to spend here in a positive way — updating my resume and putting in my notice. I have several very strong leads and there’s a 90% probability I’ll be out by the end of June. HALLELUJAH. There is nothing worse than a toxic job or toxic co-workers. We spend so much of our lives at work. It’s important to feel good about where you’re going every day!

I had one, he used to report to me and made it so hard to give him any feedback.  One day my boss and I met with him to discuss an incident with an associate of an agency we regularly deal with and he threw a tantrum and resigned on the spot, saving me the pain of having to deal with him everyday.

Oh yes. A pretentious know-it-all douchebag that I couldn’t stand. My blood boiled anytime I had to look at him. I was ecstatic when he moved teams, I nearly burst out into insane giggles at that meeting. I’ve never hated anyone more than I hated that guy.

Not a co-worker.  Always got alone really great with them, but I had a boss that I really wanted to like, but she hated me with a passion.  She tried to micromanage me! She even tried to write me up for using an (×) instead of a  (checkmark ) on  a process that wasnt applicable on a checkoff schedule.  Then, she said she was going to write me up for using an ink pen on a permanent document instead of using a pencil. This bitch was crazy, but she did inspire me to establish my own business!  I never wasted a second of my time hating her, but I’m so thankful to God that I don’t ever have to look at her mean hearted azz again in life!

Pinkmoon:  I’ve got a similar colleague, we’re the same age and he’s SOOO sexist, he always talks down to me, whenever I get complimented/congratulated on doing a good job he never joins in.

He’s always insinuating that I’m going to go off and get pregnant any day now, because I got married six months ago. He says stuff like this in front of everyone in the office. It’s really awkward and inappropriate. 

Also, he asked me to cover a shift for him so he could go to an out-of-town party. I said yes so long as I could swap it with one of mine. Since I covered his shift, whenever I make reference to him covering my upcoming shift he acts like he has no idea what I’m talking about. He even made it look like the shift swapping was MY idea, to my boss.

There were two at my last job.

One: A man of 55, absolutely obsessed with Pokemon.  Seriously.  I’m all for hobbies, but usually, when you find out that your colleagues don’t share your interest, you know not to yap about it constantly, don’t you?  Not this guy…  He was also a complete know-it-all, who used to continually brag about how brilliant he was.  We had 3 weeks of training, which could have been fun if he hadn’t continually argued with the trainer!

Second: A woman in her early 30s who continually whinged about how she didn’t have a man in her life.  Continually…she just wouldn’t shut up!  She also whinged all the time about how the stress of the job was causing her to lose her hair – she had the fullest, thickest head of hair I’ve ever seen!  This part I found particularly annoying, as my hair hasn’t ever fully recovered from the chemo I had a few years ago when I had cancer.  When my hair is wet you can see my scalp through it…I mentioned this to her, hoping that she would have the sense to get the hint and shut the fuck up.  But of course she didn’t…

Whenever I feel down about losing that job I just remind myself that at least I don’t have to deal with these two anymore!

Jennybee224:  yes! She was the receptionist and i hated how condescending and conniving. Abd she always played victim. I also couldnt stand how snotty she was to everyone around except for the bosses of course.
