And why?

You first

My uncle. He’s arrogant and a snob who looks down his nose at everyone. I cannot stand him.

My aunt. She’s a cunt.

Someone who goes out of his way to slyly bully innocent people with the aim of seriously trying to ruin their life chances

To be honest nobody IRL trumps some of the responses I've seen on here in the past.

Someone I worked with in investment banking in the early 80s. He bragged, sneered, and threw a telephone directory at a secretary when she and her boss (a grammar school oik) had to share an office with him.

The most utterly vile and dishonest, immoral person I have ever come across. He was also a drunk. Racist, sexist, classist, homophobic. Revelled in gossip and bitching.

He would never survive now - he did then because he made them money.

He had a lovely obituary.

My brother in law. Loud mouthed, arrogant and dishes out insults in the guise of "jokes".

Very senior bloke at work who bullies his staff into going to bars to socialise, gets them rat arsed, takes pics and vids of them all pissed up which he then subtly threatens them with later. Absolute clack wanker. Owners love him as he brings in big clients and behaves like a fucking choir boy around them. It’s only a matter of time before HR have to deal with something awful that he’s done.
I once told him to F off and leave my team alone and he’s done everything he can since to disrupt any project I’ve been on.

He’s single, lives alone and I’m fairly sure is deeply, deeply unhappy in RL.

My former colleague. Let’s call her Barbara, because that was her name. I was a student earning working part time waiting tables in a chain eatery to earn a few quid.

Barbara was the restaurant supervisor. A bitter, angry menopausal woman whose life had not quite turned out the way she hoped, she was thick, chavvy and almost comically obnoxious. She particularly hated ‘Fucking posh students’, especially those of us studying subjects which would qualify us to enter professional careers. Nothing we did could please her, no drinks could we serve properly, no order could we transcribe accurately, no dessert could we make correctly. We were all fucking shit. Everything we did was fucking shit. The way we wore our uniforms was fucking shit. She never laughed, never smiled and could kill a pleasant atmosphere by just entering it.

We gave her a nickname; ‘the warthog’. In retrospect, this was an outrageous slight on a blameless creature, but at the time we thought it was hilarious. When she found out about it, she was so furious i thought her head was going to explode.

I'm a teacher - I had a career before full of adults with charm and erudition. Since working in education I have at times been left open mouthed by the bombastic fuckwittery of failed Apprentice candidates barely out of their teens.

My twentysomething overpromoted line manager has a voice like a shrieking crow (sound and fury signifying nothing for fans of the Bard) and is just an awful bullying human who would have been sacked by now in the private sector.

The shop assistant in the village supermarket. She looks and presents herself like someone who starred in the League of Gentlemen, and works all hours to fund her alcoholic cocklodger boyfriend who hasn't had a job in the ten years they have been together. She was overheard quizzing an Asian man yesterday about his home address, as 'people like him don't live around here'. I understand it is a seaside resort and has the usual COVID visitors issue, but she was being racist. She told me I could get help on the NHS for my dialect if I wanted, and when my son was having a seizure as a toddler she was shouting from the shop step to the ambulance crew asking if I was dead, or the kids...and then laughing when she saw me upset. She says I am a 'saddo' for not wanting to drink in the local pub...and laughs at the woman with dementia and multiple sclerosis still trying to walk her dog with a limp. 'If I looked like that going up the road, I'd have the dog put down and myself' she cackles. Rumour has it that her job is at risk. I hope so, she gives me the creeps and karma is well overdue a visit.

My FIL. Hateful human being.

Hugh Dennis. I was on the Eurostar coming back from Paris, he sat with his family in the 4-seater next to me. They are and drank and left all the rubbish on the table and floor when in London.

Scoobydoo - she sounds evil!

StarShapedWindow Fri 22-May-20 21:12:23

They owner of a Stockbrokers who I got my first ever job with. He was a cruel bully and I had to watch him reduce a really lovely middle aged man to almost tears when he bullied him into phoning his best friend from childhood to tell him he was pulling out of a deal that would be shattering financially for the guys family. He was literally the nastiest man I’ve ever met - he was called Howard.

My mother.

She is a textbook narcissistic and her voice is so fucking disdainful when she speaks to people in shops/restaurants. She regales me with stories about her being unforgivably rude and aggressive toward people (even her colleagues!) for the most minor transgression and it’s clear that she expects me to crow ‘good on you!’ for ‘sticking it to them’.

It has taken me three decades to realise that I can totally take the wind out of her sails by just pulling a face and asking, ‘do you really speak to people like that? Wow...’

It fills her with rage but she’s too embarrassed to argue smile

@AgeLikeWine that has genuinely made me laugh 😂

DamnYankee Fri 22-May-20 21:30:54

Lady across the street. She loves our family, but you'd have to pay me a million dollars to work on her house or yard. Absolute harpy!

Not me but my DH's friend knew Dominic Cummings, did not have a good word to say for him, this is going back a number of years ago.

What’s the vote for?

shinyredbus Fri 22-May-20 21:34:31

Guy form an investment bank who was only an ED. Threw his weight around like he was the Fucking CEO. Once threw something at me (I used to work in a hotel) because I didn’t have his key ready.

My vile next door neighbour. Lazy, dirty, workshy, antagonistic, arrogant, obnoxious twunt. Entertains men for a few quid. Lets her son run feral. Spends most of her time off her face and trying to get attention off anyone who looks her way. Throws her household waste directly into her garden.

I've never met anyone as vile in my entire life.

And she has the cheek to try and take the moral high ground with me 🤣
