Wednesday Rant

So I'm in this training class this week and their is a guy (as those of you who follow me on Twitter are aware) that knows everything about everything. I mean EVERYTHING.


Now, I *think* I'm a fairly non-confrontational person. I shy away from conflict. HOWEVER, this guy has pushed my buttons and I will lose it at some point. He has only been with my company about 2 months and I want to ask him why he is here if he knows everything already. We joked at lunch that we were going to start talking about our "Aunt Flo" visits to see if he'd recommend a certain type of tampon or instruct us on their correct use. 


He has: worked on the computers, told my boss how to hem her coat, instructed a diabetic in our class about diabetes, told the plumber how to fix the Coke machine, told us how the plumber broke the Coke machine, told me what program I need to add to my laptop, why I should drink HIS type of beer, etc...


No, he is not married. Men, let this be a lesson. If you try to make us believe you know absolutely everything about absolutely everything what you are really telling us is that you are perhaps inadequate in other areas...


Just my opinion and just my rant. There...I would say I feel better, but I have 2 more days of this fella...Yay, me.

I'm a bit of a know it all myself... Did you ever stop to think that maybe he is on to something?

I don't mind a know it all, but NOT about EVERYTHING...trust me this guy would annoy you as well!

Awesome. How did he end up in sales? There's one in every workplace.

Maybe you could very explicitly explain to him how he could go *bleep* himself. ;-)

We have a friend like that. He's an expert at everything. He's a talented "artist" (although the Evil Twin rates his work as 3rd grade scribbles), saves jobs at his company on a regular basis, etc. We've managed to avoid his company for quite some time now. Ugh!
