What could be worse than being stuck in an office all day? Meetings, deadlines... colleagues. Surely no torture can crush the spirit so completely as prolonged exposure to these people. You?ve faked phone calls to avoid them. You?ve hidden in toilet cubicles until they?ve gone away. At last there?s an effective way to fight back.

Pains in the Office will help you identify, shun and plan your revenge on the 50 worst types of people you meet at work. Your job may be awful, you may hate your colleagues with a passion, but here at least is a happy place to retreat into. This is your comfort blanket, hidey-hole and fire escape all rolled into one.

Pains in the Office is guaranteed to become as indispensable to the office worker as cigarette breaks and free stationery. It?s the perfect antidote to nightmarish co-workers everywhere!

About the author (2004)

Andrew Holmes is a writer, grumpy old man, gadfly and collector of stories and observations about the people around him. He spends far too much time getting worked up about other people's failings for his own good and has taken up Salsa dancing to take his mind off it all. he likes to spend as much time as possible with his family - at home, with the curtains drawn, the phone off the hook and the door locked securely.

Dan Wilson is an illustrator, artist, thinker and borderline genius who clearly suffers delusions of grandeur. he started doodling at the age of three and has rarely stopped. Allergic to suits, Dan avoids  all pains in public by hiding out in his ivory tower in front of the drawing board. He also enjoys tea, pylons and riding his All Terrain Board.
