    Default Know It Alls

    So, theres this complete idiot I work with, a complete rat of a boy, one of those 'know-it-alls' who actually, of course, knows nothing whatsoever. Everything has to be a dispute, and he knows better, despite having been there a month and the rest of us for years! He takes every opportunity every five seconds to let us all know he drives a Focus 1.6 TDCi because apparently we care! Ohhhh you drive a diesel hatchback wheres your Knighthood? I guess your other car's a Ferrari. The final straw was today when he slagged off my vectra completely unacceptable! Its not as if he drives a Merc! He was sniggering away so I quietly pointed out that I'd leave him standing at the lights next time and walked away

    So my question guys, whats the best way to deal with these rodents of the workplace and slap their attitude right down a peg or two?
    Suggestions gratefully received!

    I would just ignor him, if he asks why you don,t take any notice of him, just say when you stop talking like a t0ser i will stop treating you like a t0ser.people like him do not like to be ignored, so perhaps he will start to respect you in future.

    These people are great, whenever I come across one I usually try and back them into a corner with something that they reckon they know everything about, then tell them exactly why they're wrong and why you know better...

    Extremely satisfying when you can do that to them... but it is kinda sinking to their level when you do that. Other times, I just ignore them... depends how much they're bugging me...
