Every workplace has them: whirlers and swirlers. You know the type. They are unable to keep their noses out of other people’s business and they repeatedly turn things topsy-turvy. So how do you deal with a whirler and swirler?

Remember that saying Everything I need to know I learned in kindergarten? Well, for Rose — a viral sensation thanks to a YouTube video — everything she needs to know, she learned when she was two years old. Just listen to this exchange she had with her dad:

So, what Rose knows at two, we would all do well to remember in the workplace when a whirler and swirler wreaks havoc: I have my job, you have your job.

So, can you channel your inner Rose and worry about yourself?
