5 Worst Types of Colleagues You’ll Meet at Work

                Unless you plan to be a bum for the rest of your life, you cannot avoid going to work.  And as an employee, you are expected to act accordingly to the rules and regulations of your company which includes not punching a co-worker in the face. We all get stressed and frustrated at work and as difficult as it is already, some people somehow makes it even harder simply by being themselves.

Here are the 5 worst types of colleague you’ll definitely meet (or may have already) at work:

The Know-It-All  

5 Worst Types of Colleagues You’ll Meet at Work

                Ugh, nobody likes a know-it-all, right? But for some reason, they keep on breeding and there are lots of them in the workplace. They dote on you and criticizing every little thing you do, correcting every single wrongs and the worst part is, they’re not even your boss. How to deal with them? Be a know-it-all yourself but only use it to defend yourself. Prove to them that you know what you’re doing and no one else should tell you how to do your job unless they’re the ones paying your bills.

The Get Me Out Of Here

5 Worst Types of Colleagues You’ll Meet at Work

                This type is easy to spot. They’re the ones who are slumped on their chairs all day, complaining about everything. They complain about having to wake up so early. They complain about the traffic. They complain about the rude bus driver they just had a fight with. They complain about the weather, the train, the sky, the desk and the way the hours go oh so slow. They have always told you that they’re going to resign and find a better job somewhere but they’ve been saying that for years now and they’re still in the company, complaining. Stay away from this type if you don’t want to become like them.

The Mega Phone

                Happy-go-lucky, cheerful, giddy but loud, very loud-these are the traits of the Mega Phones. This type of colleague is harmless at first if you’re new at the office but once they get to know you, they’ll talk to you as if you’re at the other side of the office. Always excited about everything, they like telling stories you care nothing about and you’d seriously want to put something inside their mouths to get them to stop talking but of course, you can’t do that so just pop on your earphones and listen to heavy metal instead.

The Politician

                Ah, nothing says corporate drama than office politics. This is where the office politicians thrive. This is their battlefield. They work their way into the ranks and befriends everyone, especially the big bosses. They often make themselves popular by doing people favors but don’t get fooled, once they get to the position that they want, they’ll do an entire 360 and become the monster they always were.

The Dunce

                Idiots are fun that’s why every village wants one but definitely not in the workplace. Dunces are little children on “Bring Your Child To Work Day”. They literally don’t know or care about what they’re doing as long as they’re getting paid for it. They are most of the time subordinates who keep bugging you with questions rather than taking the initiative to figure things out on their own. It’ll make you wonder if they’re really just lazy or a legit bunch of idiots who miraculously know how to make a resume and pass a job interview.

Best 90s Bands That Should Be In Your Playlist

Best 90s Bands That Should Be In Your Playlist

                The 90s can be best described as a bridge for it connects two generations. It’s the old and the coming of the new millennium blending within a decade. That’s why the music scene of the 90s is a merry mix of the fading 80s dance raves and pop songs and the emerging new subgenres of rock and roll such as alternative rock and grunge rock. Soon enough, a lot of these bands dominated the airwaves and people were listening to guitar riffs and bass lines again just like the good ‘ol days of rock in the 70s but with an angst-y twist. If you’re unaware of the amazing music scene of the 90s and want to enrich your playlist with actual music instead of pop sensations and digitally altered music that we have today, here are the best 90s bands that you should definitely listen to:

Blink-182

                You can ask any pop punk band that was formed in the early 2000s about their major influence and the answer will definitely include Blink-182. Founded by Mark Hoppus on vocals/bass, Tom DeLonge on vocals/guitars and drummer Scott Raynor (replaced by Travis Barker in 1998), the band is best known for reinventing and developing pop punk music. Since their debut in 1995, Blink-182 continued to top the charts with their hit songs such as “Dammit”, “What’s My Age Again”, “Adam’s song”, “All The Small Things” and many more. To date, the band has sold over 3.5 million albums worldwide. As of now, the band is going through some sort of a break up with DeLonge on an indefinite hiatus. Still, their big influence on today’s bands and to their fans remains undeniable.

Pearl Jam

                Nothing says 90s music than the band Pearl Jam. Their diverse music and interesting subjects that they use in their songs made them extremely popular, especially amongst teenagers. Formed in Seattle, Washington in the year 1990, Eddie Vader (vocals), Stone Gossard (guitar), Jeff Amment (bass), Mike Cready (guitar) and Matt Cameron (current drummer) sold over 3.1 million albums worldwide. If you want to hear how good this band is, check out their song “Jeremy” and “Just Breathe”.

Green Day

               This list would not be called best bands of the 90s without Green Day in it. Composed of Billie Joe Armstrong on vocals and guitar, Tre’ Cool on Drums and Mike Dirnt on bass, the band was formed in 1986 but achieved their commercial breakthrough in 1994 with their album, Kerplunk. Armed with their vicious take on punk rock, Green Day sold over 75 million albums worldwide and won numerous awards, including a Tony with the Broadway adaptation of their most successful studio album, American Idiot.  I suggest you put the whole American Idiot album on your playlist because every single song in there are worth the listen.

Rage Against The Machine

                Rage Against The Machine was not dubbed as The World’s Most Dangerous Band for nothing. Their hip/hop fused with heavy metal sound conquered the airwaves in 1992 with their self titled album that topped the charts despite their radical music. In fact, it is their radicalism that raised them to fame. Composed of Zack de La Rocha on vocals, Tom Morello on guitars, Brad Wilk on drums and Tim Commerford on bass, RATM used their songs to inspire social change amongst their audience and provide support to the minorities, especially those who are often victimized by racism in the United States and the rest of the world.  Though they disbanded in 2000, their songs of freedom and equality still rings true, especially now more than ever. If you want to hear how badass this band is, listen to ‘Killing In the Name”, “Bulls on Parade” and my personal favorite “Freedom”.

Nirvana 

                Nirvana is considered to be the voice of the 90s. Why wouldn’t they be when they started the whole grunge era of rock and roll? The Nirvana trio composed of Kurt Cobain on vocals and guitar, Kris Novoselic on bass and Dave Grohl on drums, became the flagship of Generation X because of their songs about individuality. They also invented the “quiet verses and heavy chorus” song formula which is widely used today by a lot of bands. Even after the death of Kurt Cobain in 1994 and their breakup, Nirvana continued to be one of the best selling bands of all time garnering over 75 million albums ales worldwide. In case you don’t have their songs yet on your playlist, you should definitely check out their classic songs “Smells Like Teen Spirit, “Come as You Are” and “No Apologies”.
