What is the worst/meanest thing you've ever done?
Advertisements [?]
There was a gal that I used to work with that was afflicted with constant talkitis and buttinski interruptis. She was absolutely UNBEARABLE! Nobody wanted to hurt her feelings by just waling away or telling her to shut up so we ended up developing little tricks to "save" each other.

I was the only one who confronted her. When she interrupted me or butt into a conversation that she was not welcome I turned to her and said, "excuse me, I'm sorry, did I interrupt you?" She got the message. When she came to my desk to talk, I said "no, we you not going to talk, I am busy."

But I did take part in these saving missions with other people. They amounted to telling them they were needed somewhere all of a sudden, or calling them at their desk when she showed up to talk. One of my girlfriends used to sneak a dollar into my desk somewhere every time I "saved" her by calling her because I wouldn't take the money.

I wish people would have been honest with her but I did take part in this charade. Finally management did intervene with her and she was crushed that she had been made a fool of by so many people and they were not just honest. Surprise. *sigh*

So what was the worst or meanest thing you've ever done?
