Work advice

There is a woman at my work who talks like a baby, laughs and slacks off all day, yells and stomps, talkes about herself constantly, and messes up her work. She is driving me crazy! We all work with people that are horrible - what are your coping mechanishms?

Ugh I know where you are coming from OP! There always seems to be one in every office. There isn't much you can do about her slacking (I'm assuming you aren't her boss!) but if she is too loud or obnoxious I would say something. I share a very small area with one other woman who talks SO loud, I have talked with her several times about how it is a problem and she is working on it. She does have to be reminded all the time though! Would talking to this person help?

Yes - we all have them and sometimes the only thing I can do is remind myself how lucky I am to NOT be her!!

And really - be glad if that's the worst you have. We have a guy here who snorts the snot back up out of his nose into his throat and then hawks and caughs it up. All day. Very LOUDLY. It is SOOOO disgusting to have to listen to it that the yakker/slackers we have are nothing compared to him!
