I am so tired of dealing with egotistical, power-hungry assholes at work. You know the ones: rude, think they are superior to everyone, pull power plays. I rarely have to deal with them except for the dipshits in my old department who are universally loathed by everyone else at my university. They think their shit doesn't stink.

Kicker is, *they* are all miserable. Just one big department of misery. They deserve each other.

I am with you. Fortunately my office only has one of these types, but he really does make everyone miserable. The last person who quit specifically cited him in her exit interview.

What I hate is that asshole coworkers seem to embolden others to take up the assholery as well.

Hey if encouraging assholery is good enough for POTUS it ought to be good enough for everyone else. :roll:

We got rid of our major asshole IT guy a while ago, and so far no one has claimed his mantle. We do, however, have a few crazy bitches that are as problematic as assholes. The Valentine's aficionado is one. Then we have two others who don't like each other, and try to split their associates into camps. I don't work closely with them, but they can stir up the whole office at times. If both of them abruptly departed this earth, champagne corks would pop at more than a few desks.
