What is a pejorative phrase or word you would call an employee who has all the free time in the world to just to be nosy in how others wear their tie or how some one should not put their hands in their pocket or discuss unimportant ideas.

I do not want to use the word "Nosy" as it does not describe the free time effect and as is nosiness is a secondary effect. The word has to do with "free time". the best phrase would be "All-the-spare-time-in-the-world timer" but unfortunately its not a word or a phrase.

  • He's a VIP -- Vacation In Plant.
