A New Entry to the List of the Type of People that I Hate

Squeaky Wheel:

A Squeaky Wheel is that person that thinks that by getting a supervisor invlolved, they will get their way.
The SW thinks that if they bitch loudly enough & long enough, then they will get their way. This is the same person that, when a manager does come over to listen to their self-important dribble but doesn't give them everything that they want, will threaten to a) write a letter to the president, b) sue the company, or c) both.

When confronting a SW, the best plan is to stick to your company's policies. Unfortunately, there are those placaters out there who will bend to the SW's desires. This only encourages the SW to think that they can repeat the same actions at other places & get similar results.
