Think of the last person to whom you spoke and describe that person's most annoying personality trait. One of them might become a Dilbert comic.

Constantly playing down other's compliments toward you as trivial.

Complimenter: I heard you helped out that other department with streamlining processes. They said it was amazing how you got that 3 day process down to a couple hours. Good work.
Me: Thanks...
Person-in-question: Well, once you figure out how to do those sorts of things in the system, its not very impressive at all... I can do it too.

This is an easy one for me....

The tattletale co-worker!

At my previous job, we had this one guy who had a notorious reputation for being someone you better not tell anything that can come back to bite you in the a$$. He was the stereotypical kiss a$$, who always had his nose in everyone's personal business and no matter how hard I tried, I could never seem to avoid him. Of course, given the chance, he would be the first person to run to our boss in the event of anything "controversial". I think he saw himself as the office regulator, when in reality, all he did was stir the pot and create more havoc for everyone around him. Sound familiar anyone?

I am happy to say his life found a bit of irony and he ended up getting fired over a harassment issue with a woman in the sales department.

The moral is quite simple...

Do your work, do not get involved with the personal matters of office co-workers and stay under the radar!

A stuttering, grunting donkey laugh...incidentally this comes from a self-proclaimed "inventor" relative of mine.

He was a guy that was trying to get me to do the creative part of his job..........well, I didn't actually talk to him.

Get back to work, Scott.

She generally takes several minutes to say something that could easily be said in fifteen seconds, often while I am engaged in an important activity.

My pity for her situation is apparently not enough, so she makes the same complaint over and over until I "understand" when I can really do nothing about it. Or perhaps it's a ploy to force me to put her out of their misery.

This person has two annoying traits. He is a VERY close talker and he constantly clears his throat while talking.

Ok, my realtor. We were out looking at houses yesterday, and there were a couple we simply couldn't find. I guess she was feeling insecure over that to begin with. But when we eventually found the next house on our list of places, she parked right in front of a fire hydrant. I pointed this out (nicely) and she accused me of being too critical and short with her. So I had to spend the next couple minutes assuring her that I was not intentionally trying to criticize her. So - most annoying trait = hyper-sensitivity to perceived criticism.

Does not listen.
Says No to everything.
Creates a mess but expects others to clean it up.
Makes life miserable for all around when does not get their way.

The person was my almost-two-year-old.
