Do You Work With A Debbie Downer? Share Your Story!

Have you ever worked with someone who is a constant buzzkill? He/she is the most depressing person and consistently brings down the mood whenever they are in the room. We like to call that a person a “Debbie Downer.” When everyone on the team is in great spirits, they are the one person who has something negative to say. No matter how hard you try, a Debbie Downer just can’t be pleased. If you’re having a great day... they are probably the one person you want to avoid because in a matter of seconds, they could ruin your high.
