How to deal with annoying coworkers | Reader advice
 [Mr Thinktank]
I've given my thoughts on how to deal with annoying coworkers. Now hear what readers had to say! Here is the question I posed last week:
Which type of coworker annoys you most and how do you deal with it?  Do you have any tried-and-true advice for dealing with difficult people?
I think its so funny how on each of the descriptions you added "What if you are..." I can say I am not the latebird. CHECK. Or the oddball. CHECK. BUT IF I had to be any of these I'd be the oddball. There is one type of co worker that totally distracts me, it's the one that BLOWS UP anything small and not so meaningful and makes it your nightmare. Distracts everyone from what they are doing and makes them focus on THAT they are trying to solve. I don't even know what to call it, it just does not make sense. —Lorena 
I am NO morning person and I am trying to do the best I can to get to work on time! I don't know what it is, ever since I was a kid it was just tough for me to get out of bed! I love how you profile these various work personalities! —B. Inspired
I detest those that commit to taking on a task, and then totally drop the ball. Then look at me like I have three heads when asked where the expected outcome is??!?!? —rskmom
I have had my fair share of oddballs at my workplace. They're not so bad once you realize they're just a little different. They make work more interesting! :) —Kileen
My biggest problem is with colleagues who want to socialize. I absolutely cannot get work done at the office because of this. I may need to cover the glass in my office door. —Terri

So what do you think? Do you have any advice to add?
