Do you have a me-me-me colleague?

This ******* baby I work with, supposedly he's 33 or so, will come into the office in a horrid mood about once a week. Okay, fine, we all have good days and bad days, most of us are mature enough to deal with them properly, ie. by not taking our problems out on innocent people.

However, if anyone else is having a good day (which I normally am; I'll admit that I routinely pop into the office with a big ol' grin on my face, singing Sheryl Crow or whatever. You wouldn't know it by this journal, but I'm actually a very happy person) or a bad day, this guy gets all pissy.

For ex, today I was talking to another work colleague about what I did last night. No specifics, just saying "Oh, I met this guy, I had some fun." becuase my friend mentioned that I looked happy today. That was it. No details. And baby colleague butts into our conversation and says "I don't want to hear about it. Keep your personal life out of the office"

I said "Excuse me? I wasn't talking to you."

This baby colleague regularly subjects us to his ******* eye problems, his girlfriend's bladder infection problems, his purchase of camping equipment, his trading on the Thai stock exchange, etc.

Bloody ******* wanker. I'm so irritated I'm swearing in British English. I mean, he ought to keep his ******* problems out of the office too, by not subjecting the rest of us to his shitty tantrums.

Short of peeing in his coffee, anyone got any ideas on how to deal with baby colleague?

In a leadership school I attended they talked about 10% of the people causing 90% of your problems and the remaining 90% only casusing 10%. Thus basically 10% of people are ASSHOLES ans will likely never change so stay focused on the COOL 90%. Good luck.

well you seem to have told him off already, good for U if he keeps it up tell him like ya told us here and do it in front of the rest who feel the same and they should support you and if he is a man at all he will apologize if not a man he will be made to feel the size he is acting
