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

OK - this once it was ME that was the bastard colleague!
Back in the late 90's I got this gig working at MTV - yes, THE MTV down in London. It involved commuting down from Brum and crashing on a mate's floor Monday to Thursday night (for which I am still grateful and give Andy a bottle of Jameson's Irish Whiskey EVERY time I see him.)

Unfortunately it also gave the cheap bitch-slut-whore I had mistakenly married in a mosque under Islam to sleep with my ex-best mate... - but, give the religion it's due, all ya gotta say is "i divorce you, i divorce you, i divorce you" and you are allowed to throw the cheating bitch out into the street and then burn all the shit they left behind.

ANYWAY! - this is all getting further from the point; after all this kicked off I obviously REALLY needed to keep my job - and I was a "mere" temp on the IT helpdesk. And there was another temp also working there - and worst of all there was only one long-term temp contract up for grabs.

Now; I thought it would be really hard to out-shine this bloke in pure work terms - we were evenly matched skill-wise, and there are only so many fuckwit users you can help in a given day.

So: I decided to resort to dirty, underhand, lowlife technques... - I decided to give him the nick-name of "Mr Logic" from Viz as he had a slight, passing resemblance to said character.

Nuff' said! - once everyone started to call him that there was NO WAY he was gonna stay there!

I ain't proud - but my need was greater!

I had a bit of trouble following that...
...mainly because you began with the sentence: "back in the late 90's I got this gig working at MTV", and the use of the word 'gig' made me think of David Brent's motivational speech, which then occupied my brain entirely for the remainder of your post.

Better luck next time.
