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

Possibly me
I worked for my dad's company for a while, and did almost no work.
to my credit, the work that I did do in the 20 minutes of actual searching and scouring of the internet (my job was to find Nurse Practitioners in different states), was apparently enough to keep my superiours happy and busy, as I had not been trained in, nor knew the first thing about, actually calling these people and asking them to leave their jobs to work for us. In the month or so that I had worked there, I may have done about a day of actual work, which apparently was enough to keep the problem of finding people away for...well a year really.
But I was still the bastard colleague, I was the only one in the office not wearing a suit (I wore my standard T-shirt and cargo pants with books in the pockets), I drank coffee like a fish (it was boring as hell), and never once made a new pot, and occupied the corner office of my dad, as he was almost always away to meeting and such.
I always believed that no one yelled at me because I was the boss's son, hated that, I would rather be useless than useless and protected.
At one point I told my dad that I'd finished all my work, and that I felt bad taking his money for spending all my time on B3ta
this resulted in him telling my superiors to "find more work for me"
they didn't, just told me to see if I could find more, and I couldn't, so that was that
I figured the best way I could get on with all was to keep quiet and beat that flash portal game for the 56th time.

Came back recently to help them set up the new office, they seem glad to see the end of me there, putting up pictures was a lot more interesting than finding jobs anyway.

2 months and too long
