    I know many of youz are veterans dealing with this environment but I'm relativly new as of Jan 06.

    How do you guys deal with evil managers, and annoying co-workers?

    What are your secrets?

    I'm having a rough time getting used to this type of environment myself.

    best thing is not to be two faced and just tell someone straight if they're being twat.

    Self control, don't make yourself look bad, calmly ask what you have done to offend them etc ...failing that kick their ass in the bogs

    When you figure it out, let me know! I've been dealing with the same sort of thing not far from you (I live in PA) for a few years now. My current office (been there about 15 months now) is the worst to date.

    Go work for your council, it's a piece of piss.

    I work for Cardiff Council, and we get away with loads of shit.

    We get lashed most lunchtimes

    This is the most intelligent reply I've gotten in this post so far. This is actually very interesting to me as I have thought about this in the past. I work in law so this isn't much of a stretch for me. Unfortunatly I have no background or education in politics so I'm sure that would be an issue. Tell me more about this in a PM if you wish.

    As for the other replys.....
    YEAH I WANT TO GET FIRED FROM EVERY JOB I GET (BIG SARCASM). I don't fucking think so!!! Seriously lay off the crack! I was being 100% serious with this thread, those replies were not or your just straight up crazy.

    I mean why the hell would I want to endanger my ability to buy the tools needed to create the reality that I desire to live? (I'm half quoting a 1993 darkcore track sample)
