Almost all of us at one time or another has had to deal with that one co-worker you just wanted to give a little smack upside the head.
Be it their attitude, a habit that just got under your skin or constantly listening to them moan and complain about the professional and personal lives, it is safe to say that you likely have contemplated if time in jail was worth relieving this individual of their suffering..... or your suffering as it may be.

This was a question asked of me earlier in the week. The answer is simple- you can’t. Everyone who has anything to do with sales, with recruiting, with dealing in relationships between staff and customers all have their own way of achieving the end result. For them to use my moniker, they would have to take a really long walk in my shoes, and see things through my eyes.
