Default Re: Difficulty with coworker / new job

If you have ever watched Cheers, the character, Cliff Claven the mailman, and trivia know it all, was the exact character of one of my uncles right down to working for the Post Office. He was terrible. He was Polish discent and was always harping on how bad the Polish were treated when they first came to this country, but would refer to blacks, African/Americans, with every name in the book. Every name. I got to the point that when I was forced to spend any time with him that I would just agree with him and then he had no one to argue with. he finally shut up. Now you have your opinions and they may differ from his but if you really want him to be quite, every time he says anything just say, I agree. Worked great with my uncle and it may work for this guy.
