I've got one for you...
I have a friend who can't really say anything good about...well, anyone really. Anytime you mention someone, some group, some school, some whatever, he's always got to get his word in. If he's not saying something negative about them, he's talking about how much better he can do it. In general, this person is happy, energetic, and even has a decent sense of humor, though 90% of his humor is directed at someone else's perceived flaws. He is successful, but I often wonder if his success is due to his tedency to step on other people to get to the top. Disclaimer: I am in no way jealous of this person. I feel like he thrives on (possibly subconciously) putting others down.

I'm sure you've all dealt with someone like this. How did you handle this person? What if you had to see this person everyday? Sometimes, I just want to beat some sense into him, and a few things out of him. Obviously, I have a problem with this person-but if you think I may be the problem, please tell me. One more thing, don't speculate who it is-I assure you that most of my friends reading this will have no clue even if I told you his name.
