Have you ever had to deal with a toxic coworker or community members? You know the kind: The glass is not only always 1/2 empty but it is broken into tiny shards. They always complain about it being Monday, cannot wait until Friday. But on Friday they are complaining about the horrible past week they just had and the forthcoming Monday. They never want to be where they are; the grass is always greener at home, or at a better job, or outside. They blame management and everybody else for their woes.
Over at Cultivate Greatness there is a great article on “Becoming a Non-Toxic Person” . It shows how toxic people are not unlike toxic chemicals. They should be kept in a safe place away from everybody and everything. There is a great sentence in the post that summarizes my feelings on the whole subject:

“People like you are the reason people like me need medication! – Your kid may be an honor student, but youâ€™re still an idiot!”
