Someone who takes up your time with pointless explanations or anecdotes.
When asking a collegue a yes/no question, he replied with a 45 minute response. Not only that but he sent a follow up email later that day and when I didn't reply once again accosted me with with his response (which still didn't answer the question). My collegue is a time thief as he took more than an hour of my time.
An annoying internet Troll who hides behind many anonymous fake avatars, otherwise known as the invisible copy & paste buffoon. She seems to think everyone else is wrong and she alone is right but first she has to run a Google search so she doesn't sound like she doesn't know what the hell she's talking about. After all she has to keep face in the community. Definitely an old dried up wrinkled faced woman, who's days of youth are gone and now waste her time trying to compete with women half her age. Just randomly name any country in the world and she'll tell you she visited or vacationed there too. Yet everyone already realizes she doesn't know shit.
The act of annoying someone with pointless conversation, and purposely using up their time.
Usually for the fun or sport of it.
Dude you're being a freaking timethief i have stuff to do.
From sales: Someone who will call, email, text, and then call again to determine the parameters of your product or service, only to pick it apart, find the problems and challenges with it, and even go as far as find online complaints about you, your product, or your service...all the while never really intending to close real business with you.
This individual will likely want to schedule conference calls, meetings, or other circle jerk media to ensure even MORE of their friends can hear or see you flop around on the pier like a fish out of water.
Best strategy - DELETE BUTTON!!!
"Hey Tim - Mrs. Jones just called..." "Yeah - I know - she's a total timethief"
