More Co-Workers from Hell: Dealing with Difficult Colleagues, II

The Passive Aggressive

Meet Molly Manipulative. When Molly doesn't like a task she is asked to do at work, or doesn't agree with a situation, she'll never speak up. Instead, she'll get her point across by sulking, procrastinating, or by being sullen, stubborn, or inefficient.

The Passive Aggressive quite often manipulates you into getting what she wants through these behaviors, because if you don't react to them she acts wounded, persecuted, and portrays you as someone who is "out to get her."
