    Yes!  You mean like the one who calls in sick because she accidently (???) drank rubbing alcohol?  Or who spent two yesrs on a project before you even became their manager, but has nothing to show for it?  Or the one who always puts her calls on the speakerphone & then slams her desk drawers & jangles her clanky jewelry?

    Yes, most certainly! The guy I work with is completely out of his mind. He's a road rager and screams most of the day at people working under him. The dude needs some serious counseling.

    In every workplace I've ever been in, there is at least one of these creeps -- whether male or female. I always stayed away from them when possible. They just bring everyone down. Usually they do themselves in and get fired or sometimes leave.

      The comment box popped up after my answer, with my blog entry, and I can't get it to go away. I can't delete it so read the blog and enjoy it. It's funny now, but back then ... it surely wasn't!!

    I have. I fired her last august after years of attitude, incompetence and aggravation.  She was not only a thorn in the side for me, but also affected the morale and attitudes of all her co-workers. An utter nightmare.

      Yes.  This. 
      Add belligerent outbursts over nothing
      Everyone had to dance around her limitations.
      Finally a "new sheriff" came to town and they finally fired her. Finally.

    Yes. I was working with this nightmare employee from hell. She made mistakes all day long, and then when the boss asked what happened she blamed me.

    Yes...was a coworker, rather than employee. She came in angry every morning, rarely smiled and was incredibly loud when on the phone with customers. I nicknamed her "Ice Queen", but realized she was cold because she was unhappy and didn't know how to really improve several areas of her life that were frustrating her.

    There have been several of them in a 40+ year career, but the worst was/is the slick-tongued devil who sneaks around behind everyone's back trying to get someone fired usually because of a mild disagreement that anyone else would be over in 5 minutes This person flatters management into thinking he is the good guy, and by the way, female managers fall easily under his spell. Next thing you know, you are fighting for your job. He gets around to everyone eventually. Other employees he hasn't gotten to yet think you are exaggerating about your experience, until they experience him, that is. The problem is, you never know when he is sticking knife in your back because that is when he is being the nicest to you. We've all learned to react to his niceness with extreme caution and mistrust. It has taken upper-level management over 10 years to catch on to his antics and wonder why there was such dissention in the ranks. So while he isn't so easily believed now, he has certainlly dealt misery in the last 10 or 12 years.
