1.
the person whose job it is to fire or lay off fellow employees in a company. It is usually a human resources employee, doing the dirty work for the owner or president of the company. They break the news to you, get the appropriate papers signed, make sure you clean out your workspace (not taking off with any company property), and see you off the premises.

While a company hatchet man may have some input as whether or not you get the sack, they do not make the final decision. They are acting on the boss' behalf, and such responsibilities are covered by their salary. Therefore they are like a workplace hitman, getting paid to finish people off for the higher ups.
Bill wants to see me privately in the conference room.

That's never good news, he's the company's hatchet man!

2.
The person at the back of a long grocery line who jumps in front of everyone as a new check out lane is opened up.
Dude, he's only been waiting for like one minute. I can't believe he just jumped into that new lane.

He's a total grocery line jacker. It's not a race, buddy.

The amount of time it takes for young inspired teachers to reach complete burnout in American public schools. This is largely due to standardized lesson plans and tests, inept administration, being worked overtime with poor pay, and students and parents who don't care.
New Teacher: "If I can just reach one student today, I will have done a good job"

6-year burnout teacher: "Jason, I'm sick of your attitude. Turn in your test and get out of my classroom!"

6-year burnout teacher: "Class, instead of having you read Julius Caesar, and me teach you about it, we are just going to watch a portion of the movie to cram for the EOG test."

4.
scrabble player who earns their points by adding an "s" or "d" to the end of a high scoring word belonging to another player.

or a player who blocks off certain high point letters or triple word squares, just to prevent the other players from using them.

In general, any practice by a scrabble player that is allowed by the rules, but just seems like an unfair sheist.
Player one: A M A Z E. Ha- double word score, 32 points.

Player two (adds an 's'): A M A Z E S! Double letter AND double word, 34 points.

Player one: You Scrabble Sheister!

5.
Your sibling's spouce's family. ie. your brother's wife's parents. In-laws belonging to your brother or sister, but not to you.

People you have no obligation to see or spend time with, but have to put up with on a regular basis at functions or holidays. Though they really aren't your inlaws, they must be treated as such- just to keep everyone getting along.
The fake in-laws are coming to Thanksgiving, again?

I know- putting up with the brother-in-law is bad enough, without his whole family crashing in.
