Going Nuts

I think I'm going to go nuts this week at work. I'm going to strangle two coworkers if they don't shape up and cut it out with the bad attitudes. Director is in town this week; this will be brought up to him. I hate doing that, but I'm not sure how else to deal with it. What would you do to counter your colleagues' negative comments and generally morale-lowering snarky remarks?

I tried that, Taj, but then it all hit the fan instead.

Confront them and show them who is the boss!!! I did just that to the girl who just jointed the department. I pulled senority, BIG TIME! She is kind of afraid of me now.

I would pull them into my office (one by one, of course), and just ask them how things are going. If they say "fine." then I'd shoot back with "THEN WHAT'S WITH THE FUCKING BAD ATTITUDE?!?"

No, no... I would just ask them if they had something on their mind. And if not, and if that's just how they are, then I would calmly let them know that their attitude problems should be put in check - because it doesn't have a place in this office.

"Check yo' self, foo!"

Keep in mind of your position. I think if you bring it up with the director, you're basically tattle-tailing on them... which might also indicate to the director that you can't handle the situation. Oh, actually, it depends on if they're your subordinates or on the same level as you...

Or you can try the tried and true police interrogation method. Pull jackass #1 into a room and state that jackass #2 is complaining that he's pulling down morale. Then switch. Of course this won't work if they're both friends but you might introduce paranoia...
