How to Recognize An "A%$" Kisser - Part 1



There's always one in the office.


I can think of a few here in ActiveRain.


"A" kissers are suck ups, people who will kiss someone's butt to gain points, favors and features.
These are folks that tend to be the goody-goody types whom one can't trust.
They'll use what you tell them against you for their own personal gain.
They're social nerds with few social skills.
The way they get attention is to play suck-up to someone important.

The best way to deal with an "A" Kisser is to avoid them, don't trust them or confide with them.
They suck up all day to gain favors.



"A" Kissers are lowlife that use other people as targets for advancement.
They hone and cultivate manipulation skills.
They look nervous and babble about nothing.
That's how they manipulate victims.
"A" Kissers like to give gifts to their superiors (buy lunch, books, sweater, etc...)
"A" Kissers use control techniques on weak managers.
They love to cause trouble by ratting out other employees.
They'll lie to have a good story because a good "A" Kisser loves making life miserable for others.
A competent supervisor will find a reason to kick an "A" Kisser to the curb.
A competent supervisor knows that an "A" Kisser will steal their job and kill the deal when the opportunity presents itself.
Have you encountered an "A" Kisser ?
I assure you, I have.
Kick one to the curb today.
I did.
It'll make you feel much better.

Your business, and your life, should improve.

Wow! David, thi is the post that evidently goes with the previous post of the crying donkey. Some serious thoughts here. I have seen people in my past who fit the above profile. Yep! They often climb high or higher in their careers depending top level rank. Some people at the top recognize these characters; however, many times, not.  It makes life a little unfair, right?

They're a psycho lot, Tammy.

There's something sinister about the way they behave, Jane.

There must be an pretty interesting story behind this post, David.  Though I'm afraid to ask about it.

Glad to, Gabe.

Working with that creep was like night flying without the VASI on the runway.

You can't see the possum on the tarmac without the landing light.

I think they have a sociopathic bent, too, if you ask me.

Well said, Susan !
