One bad apple in a team can spoil the entire barrel . We may argue that the positivity of other co-workers could balance our negative vibes , but this doesn't hold true , apparently . And ignoring the problem won't make him/her vanish into thin air .

Take some actions,even at the cost of soundind like the office snitch . Your career is at stake too , after all. Report it to your senior authorities and let them know what the problem is. Sitting idle won't help you.
