Having now graduated, entered working life (it's shite), and mostly left the OTC behind, I now find myself wanting to throw one of my colleagues out of the window, for reasons I shall now explain. To give the background story, back in the good old OTC days, young Macks was going through the rigours of MTQ2, overseen by a JUO that can only be described as grossly incompetent. Not a big deal, it's only the OTC after all. I then stayed on to complete Mod 3 (unable to complete due to personal reasons - starting again in November). He/She/It transferred out after much deliberation about whether or not it could be arsed to actually do some work, to go to an RE Unit as a Sapper. All good so far, until the stupid d1ck turns up at work. Upon my polite enquiries as to what the fcuk it was doing here, it turns out it's got a job working pretty much next to me. Now, the problem is that I can't stand the idiot, because it insists on treating me with the JUO/OCdt relationship, despite the fact that I am its senior in the job, and the OTC is now a world away. Obviously, there's nowt I can do from a TA point of view (and why would I?), but I'm just wondering whether anyone's been in a vaguely similar situation, and how they handled it? I've done the "quiet word with it/boss/etc." and now find myself wanting to strangle it/myself. To be honest, it's making this job a misery, as I genuinely find myself struggling to face the creature on a daily basis, being the back-stabbing, useless tool it is. Re-reading this, I realise it's got very little to do with the TA at all, but my co-workers are useless, and as I say, the boss can't/won't do anything. Or am I being the pathetic tool in this picture?
