17 people you will find in every office
Via Metro : Many people spend more of their life at work than anywhere else so it’s natural that you will get to know the people in your office very quickly indeed.
And while there are plenty of unique people who are too awesome to fit into any category, there is always at least one of the following anywhere you work.
How many do you recognise?
And which one are you?
1. The eager to please one
Bless them, they’ll do anything for brownie points whether it’s missing lunch or being the last to leave at the end of the shift. They will pipe up at every meeting just so the boss notices them and might not even feel comfortable calling the manager by their first name.
2. The work avoider
They have developed the most genius way of looking busy without actually achieving anything. Their social media is most active during work hours.
3. The bossy one with no real authority
Yeah, there is always one who likes to throw their weight around when they are the same rank as everyone else. Best just to let them have their moment.
4. The one who makes you cringe with what they say
This is the guy who will start a sentence with ‘I’m not racist but…’
5. The overly flirty one
Have they heard of personal space?
6. The clumsy one
If you sit beside this person, expect a spilled cup of tea at least once a day. Sorry is their most used word in the English vocabulary.
7. The work spy
Nice to your face but everything, and I mean EVERYTHING, gets fed back to the manager in an email at the end of the day entitled ‘Update’
8. The joker
Everything is a laugh when this person is around. Unless everyone is staying late at a training session and the banter is holding everyone up.
9. The IT phobe
How can you work in an office if you can’t find the on button on your computer? Also, ensure you get any printing done before their shift starts. Chances are that the Lexmark will have an ‘out of order’ sign on it soon.
10. The noisy eater
The one that makes lunchtime sheer hell.
11. The party animal
The person who comes in rough every morning with exciting tales of dancing, drink and debauchery to regale everyone with, making you feel bad that the biggest thrill of your night was finding two chunks of chicken in your microwave meal.
12. The quiet one
They tend to blend in but their air of mystery is intriguing and everyone suspects that they become a little bit insane once they leave the building.
13. The sensitive one
Your heart drops when you have to point out that they have made a mistake in case they burst into tears.
14. The one who works to rule
They check their contract after every request from management and would make an absolutely fantastic union rep.
15. The downright miserable one
They hate their job. They hate their colleague. They seem to hate everything.
16. The incessant chatterer
It’s pretty hard to concentrate when this person is regaling you with every single thing they said on the phone to their mum last night.
17. The desperate for romance one
Usually also the one that gives TMI when they do finally get some too.
