I'm fun at work.  I'm more fun than a barrel full of monkeys.

This guy just doesn't respect me. Earlier in my life I this would would have made me feel insecure and I would feel pressured to giggle at his dumb jokes or try other dumb things to win him over. But at this point in my life I've outgrown that.

Part of Agile is equality in collaboration of teams.  The dominant personality is definitely something I have not seen in the workplace (on a team at least) in a long time.

It's not that he's not charming. I think it's that he's so completely unaware of how militantly stale he is.  Even Boring Stories Bob is pretty funny, except when he's telling boring stories.  Not so with Old Economy Steve. As an aside, he also has boring stories, except where BSB's boring stories are rambling narratives that don't have a point, OES's boring stories are basically just opportunities for him to drop names and remind everybody that he has lots of contacts in the industry.

How can one be STALE and CHARMING simultaneously ?  Go back to your adjective bag and get two new ones.
