I once worked with a woman who was, at best, extremely difficult. Among other little problems, she loved to tattle (which would have been tolerable had she confined herself to the truth), and customarily put her name on her colleagues' work.

Executive meetings resembled musical chairs; once X sat down, the rest of us knocked each other over to find the seats furthest away. Although a non-violent Quaker pacifist, I remember once wanting to deck her one -- and realizing that, despite 20 witnesses, each and every one of them would have unhesitatingly testified that she had fainted and landed on my hand as I was struggling to catch her.

My boss's policy was to have potential employees interview with X before being hired. It had nothing to do with professional qualifications; he was desperate to find someone who might at least be able to endure her short term...
