Cornerblock - here's another word to look up; obsequious.
Ooooh get you! Go back to bed and try getting out the other side, crabby git.
Best way to deal with people like him is by being reasonable then when he fails to respond in kind he looks even worse. This is a bit like Tom Watson MP when he interrogated Rupert Murdoch even though Murdoch wasn't the person who had the answers whilst James Murdoch was trying to give the response needed. He was obviously doing it for his own image as a tough politician not scared of a media mogul and in the process wasted time getting the answer and even achieved the impossible by generating sympathy for Rupert Murdoch!
Bugle fans will recognize this but he has a point. The bloke that threw a cream thingum at Murdoch made the same mistake. No matter how horrible the person is, when you see an old man looking scared your heart can mistakenly go out to them....
