Fly in the ointment!
I have been pretty lucky that I get to work with a lot of cool people. There are a few that can ruin your day but often I don't work with them. A few months back I was working in a department and they formed a small team. Some people were hired in from outside of work and interestingly enough, I have work with some of them before. Everyone gelled together and work was actually enjoyable. That is until...
I heard one day they hired a new woman and upon hearing the news, the other women in the group became concerned. They warned me that the lady causes trouble. Having never worked with her, I ignored the whispers and treated her like the others. Sometimes having an open mind and giving off a friendly welcoming atmosphere can work wonders... but not in this case... what a trouble making b...
She is also a major butt kisser, I can't stand that. Her and I get along because she thinks she has me fooled with her sucking up; however if you've been mean to "my ladies", you're never going to see it coming girlfriend! Lol, I have street cred".
She is one of those people who has to constantly make negative comments. She is always causing hurt feelings, she sucks the joy out of the room. I don't understand why someone wants to be like that, why not enjoy yourself instead of being miserable. She doesn't understand that no matter how much you brag about yourself, it's much less likely that you are going to be asked back when you can't work with others. People at the top are busy, they have their own issues, they don't want distractions at work, when you make yourself a distraction, you haven't made yourself look important, you made yourself an issue that will get "handled".
There always has to be one in every bunch, that "fly in the ointment", that one person who has to cause drama.
