    You don't say if the guy in your story was superlative at his job. Only that he was likeable by everyone while being a two-faced brown-noser. Even average workers, gay and straight, can be two-faced brown-nosers, don't we all know. So I don't see where your story affects my story, sorry.

    To answer your question, I'm saying it's not done to hurt anyone but to prevent being hurt by anyone. That's all I can say.

    Ha, I didn't think about that. I'll have to give a hard think if that ever was a factor in my motivation. It was so long ago for me. I know for a short while I ran around with a bunch of high-functioning partiers who could come to work with alcohol vapors coming from our pores but still knock out the work. I think it helped that our supervisor was a drinker.

    Jackoff has now put the bug in my head that I now wonder if your likable and capable snow cat driver had a scam going that no one knew about? LOL.

    Nah, kidding. I don't suspect good behavior. Of course, that means I get burned by two-faced brown-nosers. The scumbags count on our good natures.

    They focused on her because she was clean? I don't get it. Did they use her to produce consistently negative drug reports to keep the owner's attention away from you pot-smoking hippies?

    Ok, I gotta stop with these suspicions! LOL.

    Re: Should I ghost my online friends?

    I didn't know anyone else at the ski area, but I know how things worked. The place is a factory, and has a crew. A smart boss naturally wants the best crew, but he has a problem. His employee's come from a ski town, which is party central. He has to send X amount of people to be drug tested, but knows or suspects a big chunk of the crew won't pass.

    That's why my friend got chosen so often. They knew she'd test clean. Half the crew does most of the tests, that's how it works. I never knew the snow cat driver, but you could bet on this. He showed up on time, got along with everyone, didn't tear up the cat, and did a good job rather the boss was watching or not. I wouldn't believe there was any deal between them. I'd put it all on the boss keeping an employee he likes and can trust. I approve myself, the job got done and no one got hurt. Did the boss know he was driving the cat stoned? My guess would be yes. It's obvious this boss wasn't afraid to bend the rules if it got him a quality job.

    I've heard stories of similar goings on elsewhere. Not many, but a few. With CDL's where they test everybody, this won't work. But when the boss gets to pick who gets tested it can.

    Ghost

    Re: Should I ghost my online friends?

    Had a straw boss that watched all day hoping to catch someone screwing up. Thats ok, but like the guy Jackoff knew, he was saving it to give the boss at the proper time. At lunch he'd question people hoping for some after work dirt to go with it. He was a half smart jerk trying to be a big fish in a little pond. Thankfully not all boss's like these employees, but there's always a few. Am glad I didn't have to work for him that long either.

    Being young, I couldn't figure why you'd want to be that way. Until I asked an older guy. "It's simple he says, you look bad, I look good."

    Superlative?

    All I can say is he was indeed very efficient and took his job very seriously. If this equates to being superlative then yes, he was. Sorry for not making this clear.

    But yes, he really did brown-nose. Always looking to show himself as being a step above others and not caring who he stepped on in the process.

    Maybe the two traits are linked in some way for some?

    I always tried to be good at whatever job I was at, but would never shit on my workmates.

    Brown nose cock sucker on one side of his personality and careless disrespectful bastard on the other side of his personality.

    Hypocrite bigoted reprobate of the worst kind.

    The people with their shit on his lips don't respect him, while the people he shits on despise him.

    If I were under him, I would seek to topple him by whatever means necessary.

    if I were over him, I would seek to fire him in the best interest of the business and harmony.

    He's a hypocritical two faced dirtbag not worth the shoes he's standing in.

    It was getting late here when I made this post and I just realised that one again I implied there may be a link here without explaining what I thought that link may be, so here goes.

    We all know that some gay people are, let’s say, flamboyant. Not all but some. In other words they like to stand out. This is a character trait shared with another type of person – the highly ambitious.

    In the work-place there are two ways to stand out: to simply be the best at what you do, better than those around you, or to make others look bad so that they seem worse than you and this was the essence of my story about the workmate that backstabbed others.

    It seems to me that these two behaviours may be inextricably linked in some individuals, that they utilise both methods to make them appear superlative as you put it.
