Seriously! There was a woman at the end of our row who was always so dark, down, and negative.. it spread to the rest of us. Although I can generally ward the negativity of (because I am a positive person) there were days when she would just drag me right down. Now.. she is on a different team on the other side of the room!! WOOOOOOOOOOHOOOOOOOOO. Though I feel for the people that now have to deal with her, I am so glad she is far enough away that her gloom and doom doesn't affect the rest of us anymore. In fact.. you can see the light over her cubicle! Her aura was so dark.. thats all you saw was darkness over her cubicle like a thunder cloud. Do you have a person (or people) that you deal with on a day to day basis that are so negative that they bring everyone else down? How do you deal with it? If they have moved away form your area.. have you felt the difference?

I do not any longer Dizz, but trust me I have put up with my share of folks like her. I hate it too. Try as you might they sometimes really get under your skin. In my case moving her of my floor usually worked, but as soon as you did another would take her place, sometimes you have to settle with the evil you have for fear of the evil of the unknown.

It is said that the reason someone comes into your life is for you to learn from them.. when they are out of your life or move awy from you.. you have learned what you needed from them. Hopefully, whoever sits in her old seat needs to learn how to be goofy and irresponsible

Goodness, isn't is true though..there are some people that just love to be miserable that they do emanate a negative, gloomy, depressing "aura" and yes, it can affect others. I unfortunately lived with such a person, my mother. I couldn't WAIT to get out of the house for some errand just to get out. The real killer though, would be coming back home.. I could've had a really great day being out, felt good, but it was like the moment you walked back into the apt. that heavy depressing feeling would slap right at me as soon as I came home...yeesh. I actually often used to stop by a friend's home first since quite frankly I just didn't want to go home yet

It is pretty sad to have a parent who is depressed. Thaey are supposed to be the ones you could go to when you needed help or just needed to be happy. I hope she eventually got the help she needed and that your relationship is now a good one

I am so sorry to hear that. Its a shame some of these so called "therapists" only care about $$ and not about the patients. For the therapist to say she didn't look depressed... that just goes to show you she was in it for the money all along. I am so sorry for your loss

Some of our office people are on the road a lot. Then they have their days when they are in the office all day doing paperwork. We have one that changes the whole atmosphere when he is in. He's hyper, nervous and talkative and seems to create a less relaxed atmosphere for sure. Our office is generally busy but fairly mellow, but it feels a lot different on these days. I try to tune him out when he's in, I take a few breaks and actually leave the office for lunch to sit outside and read. What a difference one personc can make huh!

Sometimes a change in atmosphere is all it takes. I stopped going outside on my breaks because she is always out there complaining about something. I think I[b][/b] am the hyper person at my work.. but not nervous, annoying type (i don't think ) I am happy hyper. I hope I don't other people out of the office.

I have had jobs in the past with people like that. Being in customer service, it doesn't work to well and they are usually fired. Then that light just shines. I know what your feeling and it's a good one.

I don't understand how this girl hasn't been fired. She came over over to our side of the room on Friday before she left for the day. You could literally feel the light being sucked from the area. As soon as she returned, it was MUCH NUCH lighter. It IS a good feeling to have someone like removed form the area

Hahaha, I can feel how happy you are now. Well, never experience it yet. Though there are people in the office whom I consider not that good to work with. But I still find them tolerable. Maybe, we'll just have to be mature and flexible enough in order for us to maintain harmony within the workplace.

I am lucky enough to currently work from home. But I have worked in an environment with negative people before. It is hard not to let them bring your mood down. Makes getting to work even more difficult than it should be. Enjoy the new atmosphere. You will find it brighter I am sure.
