How to deal with over-the-top sardonic, witty coworker?
August 9, 2011 6:14 AM Subscribe
So I work with pretty much this guy
(really, it's almost spot-on). It's wearing me down. I've tried to engage with him earnestly in the hope that he'll let his guard down a bit, but it doesn't get me very far. Any ideas about how to cope with him? My two options at this point seems to be avoiding him as much as possible or engaging on "his level" and beating him verbally to submission. Neither option holds much appeal for me, but neither does the current situation.
