So that’s where the phrase “just a Joy to work with” comes from... /sarc

I’ve run into “Joys” from time to time in the workplace. When they complain about how the more productive people get all the “perks” (i.e. coming in late after working extra time over the weekend) I politely suggest that the “Joy” take over the responsibility for getting the job done. Amazing how fast the “Joy” backpedals.

Hate to say it, but I’m beginning to believe that the only way “Joys” will get it is by letting them run things into the ground - and making sure they have no one other than themselves to blame.

They can always, always, find someone else to blame. The only solution I see is to let them starve, but I don't find that acceptable even in the light of "if a man will not work, neither shall he eat."
