How to Deal with That Irritating Friend/colleague
We can only hope for a peaceful and friendly environment at work but sooner or later, we are bound to run into a set of elements which are disturbing and quite frankly irritating.
Every office will have a prankster, a workaholic, a gossip queen, a ‘cool’ guy, and most importantly an annoying person.
This is usually some one who everyone in the team hates and no one wants to be friends with. As much as I hate to say, it is a fact that people like this are bound to be present. They can disrupt the harmony of the team and cause problems between friends, colleagues and create a nuisance of themselves.
The fact that they have no friends make them want to stand out and be noticed even more. People like this are hard to live with. Ok, I’ll admit it; there has been a time or two, when I’ve felt like strangling that person. But, being a peaceful guy, I resorted to zen techniques to calm my mind.
So what do these annoying people do, you wonder? They actually do a lot of things. More often than not, they are tolerated in the office, because they are good at work. This puts them in a privileged position, as no one can actually complain about them in terms of work. But they try to create problems by outshining the rest with unscrupulous methods. They are almost always selfish and make no effort to help any of their colleagues. Even if someone approaches them for help, they are unlikely to provide it.
Sometimes due to sheer dumb luck, two or three of these people get together and create a major problem for everyone. Unfortunately, there is nothing we can do, except hope and pray that they come to their senses and stop acting like kids. They are almost always alienated and this makes them bitter and frosty. They often try to break up relationships and create stressful situations between friends. Spreading rumors and false propaganda is a favorite pastime for these people.
The best way to deal with these people is to ignore them. If you respond to their antics, then you are lowering yourself and putting them in a position of power. Simply get on with your work as if they do not exist and everything will be fine. If that doesn’t work, you could hire a professional hit man. Just kidding!
