People You Find In Every Office
19 May 2017
We spend the biggest chunk of our lives at our workplaces. Day in, day out, surrounded by the same colleagues and faces. Sometimes, you strike it lucky and get in with a great bunch of people. Other times, not so much.
But, if you’ve moved around in your career, you’ll probably notice one thing. There are pretty much the same types of people in every office!
For this week’s Friday Funny, we take a look at the people you’re most likely to come across.
Lunch in the fridge? That’s Steve’s. Stapler? That’s Steve’s. Novelty mug? Also Steve’s. This person does not want you touching their property.
Now, you didn’t get this from me, but … How does this person know everyone else’s business? The font of all rumours, half-truths and whispers, they’re the go-to after a wild night out.
Whether it’s drumming their fingers on their desk, whilstling, or tapping a pen off their mug, this person sure thinks they’d be better off touring with the band.
The Human Buzzword
“Guys, can we just synergise together? Let’s cross-pollinate best practice.” Where do they learn these words? Why do they feel the need to use them?
Open this person’s desk drawer and you’ll find multi-packs of crisps, boxes of chocolates and endless wrappers. There’s always one person who is constantly eating.
The Sweaty Mess
We get it, you ran a 5k at lunch time. But do you think you might have popped to the bathroom for a quick wash before returning to your desk? You’re dripping on the paperwork.
Someone who can out-gym, out-sell and out-weekend you. No matter what you say you got up to, they’ve always done ten times better.
