How to deal with strange co-worker?

One of my relatives got a strange note from one of her co-workers. She was minding her own business when this guy comes by and gives her a note that says, "I'm sometimes suicidal. My niece makes me feel better, maybe you can make me feel better too." Should she tell HR? Call the cops? What does that crazy note even mean? More details below... [more inside]

Do I let my wife's baseless jealousy interfere with my career?

Setting: My wife is (IMO irrationally) jealous, and thinks that a co-worker of mine likes me. There is nothing there, and I have told her she is worrying needlessly, but she is still suspicious. Complication: A position recently came up at work, in an area I prefer over my current job and with better job security. BUT, this co-worker is on the team. Resolution: ??? [more inside]

I Don't Want to Jobshare With this Crazy Lady Anymore.

Help. I'm in a job-share situation with a woman who is making everything very difficult and I think I want to quit. Shortest version possible: I got hired the second week of school as a middle school special education teacher in my #1 choice of district; I had been very excited about the possible opportunities here. However, I'm hired to share the job 50% of the time with someone who has been doing the job forever, and according to my coworkers, who does the job very badly. And she's making every day miserable for me and all I want to do is quit. [more inside]

My socially disordered coworker scares me more than he annoys me.

Stuck with a Know-It-All/Pontificator

If I am trapped in a meeting or group with a co-worker who likes to hear himself talk (I mean really pontificate)...how do I go zen on it all? How do I adjust my own frustration? He sometimes has an entourage/fan club which isn't my business but I get really frustrated when stuck with him. He also tends to show up in the same small group parties I have attended. Deep breathing doesn't seem to be helping. I'm thinking about a flask of whiskey.

How to deal with a narcissist?

I mistakenly became friends with a narcissist, who I also work with. I've avoided a confrontation with her, but she keeps prying to find out if I'm mad at her or don't like her anymore, and I feel like eventually I am going to have to explain myself. But how do you tell a narcissist that you just don't care about them without having them explode? [more inside]
