    Default obnoxious guy...we all know one..but what do you do?

    I have a new client who is so overbearing and well, obnoxious, that at first I really thought it was a put on..............fist bump, a high five every time you meet him ...one of those back slapper types..........he has not done the exploding fist bump yet, but I can see it coming Good Lord

    goes around being overly friendly and introduces himself and wants to be your bestest friend right away. Talks a mile a minute and doesn't let you get a word in edgewise then flat out asks me "do you like me, do I fit in here" I really thought it was a put on. but it is not

    he also has a nasty habit of asking for everything at a discount, and can he pay later and "now that I'm a regular customer" wants preferential treatment and first choice on everything ...."dibs" on anything it's like he'd "gladly pay me next tuesday for a hamburger today"

    he is like the guy who you barely know who turns to you at a luncheon and points to your plate says "are you going to finish that"

    just overly familiar and intense...it's awkward and he makes me feel off kilter every time he turns up

    ugh

    how do you deal with someone like this

    She was warned. She was given an explanation. Nevertheless, she persisted.

    You know, I may be wrong here, but generally speaking, the men (and it IS predominantly men!) I have encountered who are like that are actually terribly, TERRIBLY insecure, desperate to be liked, and thereby over-compensate as a result...I know this is probably little help on a practical level, but I found that if I viewed such men through pitying, rather than incredulous eyes, it helped to reduce my annoyance!

    When I come across someone like this, I clam up tight and try my best to stay away from them. If this person is a client/customer, you're probably pretty much stuck with him unless you can pass him off on someone else. My approach would be to totally keep it by the book, follow business protocol to a T, and just give him weird looks and uncomfortable non-responses to his jackassery. No freebies or favors beyond what the business protocol requires. Let him sweat and maybe he will eventually figure out you're not the type to go along with his type of bullshit.

    Not much of an answer or help I know... Your description of him made me wince. Sounds like Michael Scott from The Office!

    you nailed it!......I kept thinking he reminded me of someone and couldn't put my finger on it..............even his PDA with his "woman" is Michael Scott-ish

    that's the guy EXACTLY...so maybe it is a put on after all?

    Yeah, we've got a dude like this at work with most of those "qualities". Just annoying to be around.
