Do you have a Debbie Downer in your work place?

I was just watching the Today show and they were talking about how Debbie Downers can bring down office morale more than anything.  We have a Debbie Downer in my workplace. Always complaining.  I just avoid her at all costs. She was my friend on Facebook and I felt like I was dealing with her negativity even when I wasn't at work.  I had to defriend her but I don't think she even noticed!  So self absorbed.

I can't think of anyone at work that fits that description.

We have one that works Wednesdays but I guess I'd have to call him a Dougie Downer. He is so rude and complains about having to do his job...
