Are vampires sexy? That would be a yes if we’re talking about Damon from “The Vampire Diaries.” Energy vampires at the office? That’s another thing.
Now that we’re going back to the office, these toxic people are everywhere, trying to suck the life out of you, according to Peter Economy, author of “Wait, I’m Working for Who?!?: The Essential Guide to Dealing with Difficult Coworkers, Annoying Managers, and Other Toxic Personalities.”
The first step to stopping an energy vampire from preying on you is to recognize that you’re being targeted. Once you spot the signs, refuse to play the game.
