Sentence: Mona Waah was the consummate bitchnessperson - she liked to take her breaks by going around and telling everyone how much work there was to do, how it would never get any better, etc. She thought of herself as getting a lot done when in reality she was slowing herself and everyone else down while she was complaining about how horrible it was there. It was like a version of that old joke - she would wake up in the morning and whine, "Do I have to go to work? There's too much to do, and everyone hates me and talks about me behind my back!" and her husband would reply, "Yes, you have to go - you're the manager."

Etymology: businessperson + bitch (complain)
