With coworkers like that, I'm amazed office buildings still feature the liability of windows.
Fuck that human 🍻
This rant is so beautifully written and vivid that I started feeling like wanting to rape him
Feel sad for you, man. Don't worry, though. He will be taught a nice lesson sooner or later
Damn. I wonder what ways there are to move that fucktard out of the way.
Take rest try to relax I know it'll be hard but try it. This thinking not going to help, your work do.
I really wish I could agree with you, I totally hope you're right. Seems like in this day and age people have never learned to be decent because they've never suffered any consequence for their shitty behavior.
Call it privilege or trophy behavior or whatever, we defend shit-heels far too often.
Hey man, wasn't @Root talking about a similar situation a short while back?
Maybe she could give you some advice. Should ask her
Here I am, helping, by volunteering others to do the work.
Dude sounds like a massive blowhard fwiw.
I'd invite everyone to a party, hype everyone up for a couple of weeks, and then last minute send him to the wrong location in bumfuck nowhere.
He'll never forget it.
Damn dude, sorry to hear that - that's a really crappy situation. Only advice I have is to do as much as you can via email or IM to create a paper trail, and log every nasty comment (and wrong comment) along with a time.
It sounds like it won't be wrong before you create a huge array of crappy stuff this dude is saying, and then you'll have a few choices - you can fire it at your manager, you can fire it straight at *him* and confront him on it directly (watch him act livid, just smile, might be worth the reaction) or go straight to HR (completely appropriate if he keeps saying uncalled for stuff about your ego, and how you wouldn't have got the job etc.) and file a complaint.
Invite any colleagues who feel similarly to do the same thing, and this guy won't be there for long. He'll be way too much of a liability, even if he does have superhuman coding skills (which in my experience is unlikely - most awesome coders are rather reserved.)
All the best.
@asgs He hasn't come to work for two days, since the day he embarassed himself. He worked remotely because his wife is sick. I don't like that karma but who knows? Maybe he lied about his wife being sick. Maybe he was actually raped by a guy with a blue bird on his shoulder and is too ashamed to admit it.
NoMad128902yWow. You're very patient. I would've found his manager or his manager's manager and told on him. Plus, I generally have a trail of emails to prove incompetence. That would annoys him enough to act out and actually get fired.
He's incompetent and a narcissist. Not a good combo. Like, you are being super patient, I'd make fun of him in a public meeting and let his ego rest in peace&piece.
Not saying you shouldn't be patient tho, I do it wrong all the time by losing my temper and making myself look bad. Be more political than me 😛 aka you're doing good. Keep going.
