Do you have a co-worker you can't stand?
What did they do to give you this feeling?
Fortunately, i'm self employed so i don't have any co-worker. When i used to work for a company, of course there is always somebody to get on you. What can make me feel bad about any co-worker will be them not being passionate about their job, they are only there for the pay packet and nothing more.
In work we have many colleagues, it is natural that we will get on with some and dislike some, as we have to get on with our colleagues for an easier, more efficient work life, it is often better just to let things lie.
Do you dislike the person or the life style and when you dislike someone you have to remember that they are your emotions, wants and desires that are troubling you so it is probably best to investigate your own problems.
For me there's a guy at work that is inconsiderate to others and makes sexual comments that aren't funny. And he eavesdrops on others in order to tattle. I simply avoid him and try not to give him any reason to project his ignorance towards me. So as far as me investigating myself because of his issues, I don't think any of the things he does are things that I have problems with in my life. I just don't like sneaky tattletales that behave like asses.
Not any more,he accidently fell into a meat grinder,so we just packaged him into the dog food cans with the rest of the ingredents!Accidents Happen!!
I think that everyone has that one co-worker that you just can not stand to see on a daily basis. Of course I do but I choose to just ignore that person and continue to enjoy my work day. Sometimes you have to learn to ignore a person so that you do not go crazy,lol.
I find that the person that you can't stand tends to be the one person that makes the whole work enviroment miserable, but once you start to do the" back and forth I can't stand you thing", you fall into the misery loves company trap and you are no better than they are.
So my best advice is to just ignore that person as much as possible but continue to be professional, you never let anyone take your work ethic to a negative place.
I job shared with this lady at a temp assignment last year who was nearly forty but you would have thought she was my age (early 20s). All she did was talk about her dating life with way too much TMI, did the bare minimum of work, wore too much perfume, and was filthy. Another co-worker and I had to report her for the perfume thing since we were both allergy sensitive. But I pretty much did as much as I could to make it equal because I wasn't about being ran over.
Every job does have that one person, but I just kill them with kindness until they do something that's against policy or something.
There was a woman at my last job who was extremely racist. She was also obnoxious and emotionally unstable. The thing I hated most was the fact that supervisory staff catered to her and dealt with her nonsense because she had been there for so long.
got loads of co-workers and i love them all! saying that, i only have to spend a short time with them before i'm left on my own for the night :-)
