There’s nowhere quite like the office, full of people you spend at least eight hours a day, five days a week with. Some you love, some not so much, but chances are, you will come across at least several of these in your career…
1) The Late One
And by the late one, we mean the person who is late every single day and annoyingly gets away with it. Their lateness is never brought up because nobody even notices anymore. It would be weird if they actually showed up on time!
2) The Loud One
The whole office knows everything about their life, from what they had for tea last night to their current relationship. You know more about their life than your own family members.
3) The Newbie
Even if they have been in the office for 6 months, until someone else comes along, they will stay as the newbie.
4) The Workaholic
They’re there when you get to work and are there when you leave and you are still receiving emails off them when you’re tucked up in bed. Everyone is convinced that they actually live in the office!
5) The Dark Horse
They never talk, like ever. When they do, one of the girls in sales falls off her chair in shock. But when they say something, it’s genius, they probably understand the company better than the actual boss.
6) The Control Freak
You never need to worry about the Christmas party or even need to be organised in general, they’ve got this! They probably have spreadsheets for every possible situation and you wouldn’t dare step on their toes.
7) The Ill One
Your colleagues know more about this person’s health than their own. They are at the doctors every week about something else and whenever they are ill, they make a point of telling every single person in the office.
8) The Party Animal
This person’s most common phrases are “I’ll sleep when I’m dead!” and “YOLO”, they are out most nights and Monday morning is always spent hearing about their crazy weekend.
9) The Wise Owl
What would we do without them? They just seem to know everything and not once have you seen them Google something. If you need the answers for spelling, deadlines or even just the meaning of life, the wise owl is there for you.
The question is, where do you fall on the scale and how many of you think you’re one type of person, when you could be quite the opposite…Nonetheless, you’ll know at least one of the above, whether you like it or not.
