In a previous life, I must have been a right nasty ba$tard, and in this life, I'm paying the price, as no matter how carefully I screen and vet people, I always end up employing oddballs. At the moment I've got a bloke on the payroll, who despite being almost eligible for his pension, is keen as mustard and just cant seem to pace himself. Hang on, I hear you cry, surely thats a good thing? Well actually, no, its a pain in the fecking ar$e! Whatever task you give him, he goes at it like a dog eating beetroot, which is fine, but as soon as he's finished, he makes a big show of having nothing to do. In my experience, most people like nothing better than having a crafty skive at work (me included) and we develop all sorts of clever ruses to hide our inactivity. Not this bloke, rather than surreptitiously browsing the net for odd porn, sneaking out for a sly smoke or disappearing to the bogs for a swift shuffle, he's doing a panto version of being idle. He alternates between pushing his chair away from his desk, and sitting there with his arms folded looking up at the ceiling and whistling tunelessly, or he stretches his legs across the gangway while repeatedly checking his watch, sighing, and looking sorry for himself. If that fails to get the attention of everyone in the office, he'll either madly drum away at his desk with his fingers, or pace up and down with his hands behind his back, clearing his throat like Bob "Fast Show" Fleming. So who in your unit/office etc pishes you off, and what, if anything, do you do about it?
