Bev is the worst to make an enemy of in my opinion. Bev is all smiles and nice as pie to your face, talking to you in that singy songy 'oh aren't you lovely' type voice whilst insincerely patting your arm and at the first opportunity will grass you up to your boss/best friend/partner. Then when called upon does the miss piggy 'who me???' and acts the victim to all who will listen. This one is worse than a Wendy as she will turn on the waterworks to make you look evil 👿👿👿

I have no patience for people that cry to ramp up the sympathy because I feel awkward around crying people. If you're genuinely upset, go ahead. But, don't cry because you're not getting your way or getting people on your side.

I generally don't have people come up crying to me. Probably because I don't treat it as much more than a person venting and assume they'll do something about it if it bugs them so much.

I do offer some good chocolate for upset friends though. smile

No luckily everyone is aware of this Bev

I thought it was a bee typo too grin

I know a couple of people who use crying as a manipulative tool, 'you'll regret it if you dare to say anything you know I won't like'. There's nothing wrong with someone crying because they're genuinely upset at the way they've been treated, but the times would be few and far between wouldn't they? (unless they're having a hard time generally) Not just cropping up in similar situations.

If she bevs everyone then at least you're not on your own and it doesn't look to everyone else as though it's you being awkward.

Is there anyone who actually plays along with her? Either for their own ends (trying to side step her focusing on them) or because they genuinely can't see through it?

Beverly knight always seemed nice hmm

I knew a bev once, thank god I was so naive I didn't know what she was playing at - nowadays all hell would have broken loose grin

I'm loling at something thinking bev was a typo for bee! Agent yes- my bev bevs everyone. Cries a lot with no need. Takes offence constantly with no need.

My two Bevs are both fab.

Having an issue with Ken and Alison at the mo though. Couple of right arses they are.

Unlike busy bees Bev's and Wendy's spend too much time causing trouble rather than getting on with their work and in any spare time having a laugh. If complained about to seniors, the usual response is "they have issues outside of work put up with it"Seniors and organisations protect Bevs and Wendy's as they are the types who go to tribunals, or enjoy bev and Wendy's sycophantic behaviour. It makes dream jobs into hell, for many people:-(

Its Christines and Colins for me Im afraid! Wendys do cry ALOT though...

ipswichwitch Sat 12-Jul-14 09:12:48

Am I the only one who thought the op did a typo and thought it was bee not bev?
I came on to post helpful bee related stuff too!

The star rating does make a difference, I agree.

They are both knobbers.

Hope things are ok for you now though Charles, and the Wendy is banished.

TaliZorahVasNormandy Sat 12-Jul-14 08:41:56

Never by a Bev, but I did have a run with a Vikki.

CharlesRyder Sat 12-Jul-14 08:30:33

It must depend on the star rating of the ones you've met.

I can see a Bev forcing you to have unnecessary conversations where you have to justify yourself- very annoying.

A 5 star Wendy can force you into needing a new LIFE though bitter, bitter experience.

ScarlettlovesRhett Sat 12-Jul-14 08:26:51

I am the opposite Charles I think Bev is way worse than Wendy.

I can usually out manoeuvre a Wendy once I've realised what they're up to - but a Bev is difficult. It's the running to people in authority, constant victim, tearfulness (and somehow always being 'bullied'); they're tricky - you have to tread carefully round them, which just enables them more.

I hate Bevs.

CharlesRyder Sat 12-Jul-14 08:03:35

IME Wendy will also turn on the waterworks, in fact do anything, to make you look evil and or insane.

I don't think Bev is worse than Wendy. Bring me 10 Bevs!!

WeirdCatLady Sat 12-Jul-14 07:59:09

I know a C-Bev and a S-Bev. Both cunts.

The only Wendy I know is lovely smile

FanjoForTheMammaries Sat 12-Jul-14 06:42:00

The Bev I know is one of the nicest people have ever met. Very sweet.

GertieFinkle Sat 12-Jul-14 06:40:53

My Bev is the first part of the description but then a vicious gossiper rather than a crier. Also staggeringly insensitive.

Batmansbuttocks Sat 12-Jul-14 06:39:42

I know a 'Bev' and it's my own mother. You're right, much worse that a 'Wendy'.

deakymom Sat 12-Jul-14 06:36:44

my daughter goes to school with a bev! she freaked out at my daughter because she wont tell her "what happened" in her past with her uncle dd kept saying there was nothing really there was nothing to tell and its none of her business anyway! so she flipped at her then cried her eyes out and everyone was asking HER what was wrong and comforting HER!

Maybe you are my peeps TSSDNCOP. I hope so because your NN is one of the best on here.
