Or maybe your coworker is just hovering to potentially partake in some free lunch on the way. Hell, a few of your more bitter and gloomy coworkers might even look to play “idea killer” and murder every one of your great new visions instead of coming up with some fresh ideas of their own. Who can stand such negativity and office politics each day?

So why not make light of it all instead? As the WorkWankers suggests:

You know who they are. Now you know what to call them behind their backs.”


idea killer




name vomitter

panic monster
