They are out there. They prowl your office space and neighborhood in a stealth-like fashion. With their game show host type grin, they take assassin-like shots at your performance and your personality. Sabotage is their specialty. They possess in their arsenal weapons that even UN forces can’t detect. Gossip. Envy. Slander. There is something about their persona that puts you on tilt, the way they look, the way they laugh, the way they treat others. I am describing labor pains brought on by difficult people.
