The 9 Least Pleasant Coworkers (and How to Deal With Them)

Not all of us are fortunate enough to have a bunch of ever-lovable saints for coworkers. Richie Frieman writes about how to deal with the nine peskiest types of coworker that plague the workplace. The nine types are Mr./Mrs. Know-It-All, the Cubicle Invader, the Office Bully, the Gossip, the Loud Talker, the Stud, the Best Friend, the Email Ranter, and Mr./Mrs. Do-You-Know-Who-I-Am? For the Cubicle Invader, make your cube unappealing and fill any open seats with stacks of papers so the pest has no place to nest. For the Office Bully, use the fifth grader tactic of showing their antics do not get to you so that they will not receive any satisfaction.
