This is a question Bastard Colleagues

You've all known one. The brown-nosing fucker, the 'comedian', the drunk, the gossip and of course the weird one with no mates who goes bell ringing, looks like Mr Majika and sports a monk's haircut (and is a woman).

Tell us about yours...

Thanks to Deskbound for the idea

people who work in call centres
Having moved from a dodgy publishers to a semi-respectable contact centre for a national institution, you'd think the hiring practices would improve wouldn't you?
But no.
Over the years I've been there I worked with a girl called S, who was permanently late, was part time, and if there was anything happen that she disagreed with it it was because you were being prejudiced against her cos she was part time, did I mention at the time I was looking after the team she was on? Because according to her she wouldn't talk to me about anything because I wasn't a 'proper manager'. Then stories started coming out about how on a night out once she pushed a guy off a bar stool. Then on a team meal she was knocking back the wine, despite the fact she'd driven there and was driving back, then said 'I really shouldn't drink whilst I'm on these valium', and then picked up a steak knife and started stabbing a plate with it. Another night out she threw a full pint glass at a a wall narrowly missing one of the girls we were out with. She then just went AWOL, and got managed out of the building.
Another character is D, a middle aged Gentleman who wears a really,really badly fitting wig, and big thick glasses that make him look like a Bo Selecta character, his lunch consists of 5 jam doughnuts, he never washes his hands after using the toilets, he hates women, and he takes his TV/video remote controls to work with him every day because his reasoning is that if a theif breaks into his house they won't steal his TV/Video because he has the remote controls with him.
There are several more scary characters there who I'm convinced are going to go postal one day.

Please tell D
About replacement and universal remote controls....I'd love to see his panic at that thought!

remote control
he he he, I'd love to but having a conversation with him involves having to brave his halitosis, which could strip paint off a ford mondeo at 50 mph!so I'll leave him be...I wonder if he wakes in the night thinking 'what if the burglars have stolen a remote for a TV like mine, but not got the TV?'

true "characters", I wouldn't blame you if you did go postal one day, it would be justified!

£3 well spent
Please please do this:
Pound-shops usually sell electrical plugs (multi-packs of 3 or 4). You should buy a few packs and take them all in, unpackaged, in a carrier bag/your handbag. Tell remote control guy that you're following his example and have removed them from your most valuable appliances 'incase of burglars'.
