Dealing with difficult co-workers: How I became the "Thanks for the candy" guy. SkyDogCon 2012 (Hacking Illustrated Series InfoSec Tutorial Videos)

Dealing with difficult co-workers: How I became the "Thanks for the candy" guy.
SkyDogCon 2012

 SpikyGeek

A set of war stories from the office dealing with annoying, disturbing, and sometimes downright crazy people on the job. A description of each event (names changed to protect the guilty), a post conflict analysis, a "what I SHOULD have said was" section, and perhaps even a lessons learned or method for others to avoid these circumstances.

(This "thanks for the candy" setup was inspired by Dane Cook's bit about talking to the guy at the office no one talks to, so that he won't get shot later.)

Spiky is a computer geek that has been working in the security industry for over 10 years, with a diverse background covering IT, comms, crypto, programming, IA, and more. When not disturbing the proponents of appropriate comments, he can frequently be found listening to music to get fired by, changing his hair color frequently, or at home providing amusement and entertainment for his wife and two dogs.
