Graduation is fast approaching and hopefully soon enough you’re going to face the big bad world of employment…or maybe you work part time already, if so, you might recognise a few of these gems… if not, you have it all to look forward to…kind of. Here are the types of people you will work with after college..
The complete jerk
There’s one person that everybody just really dislikes and it’s because of their manner, whether they think they’re better than you or think that they deserve everyone’s respect because they’ve been there for so long. Basically no job is complete without the token jerk.
The kiss ass
No matter what the boss says, this person will not stop sucking up. They make everyone sick to their stomachs and generally reckon they can walk on water.
The person who gets away with everything
They can get away with murder because they can cover their tracks and will generally be the ones that infuriate everyone -but only under your collective breaths of course.
The personal space invader
GET OUT OF MY FACE, YOU SPACE INVADER
The chatter box
You let work slide Friday evening because you were talking about the weekend with chatter box. Now as you attempt to play catch up to meet that looming deadline on Monday morning, Chatter Box still won’t shut up.
The potentially crazy person
There’s always that guy who could potentially be a serial killer. He has no online presence so you can’t stalk him and he never talks about himself, so no one knows anything about him. He looks oddly like Jeffrey Dahmer too, which is weird.
The celebrity enthusiast
Coronation Street, TOWIE, Kim and Kanye, Gwyneth Paltrow’s broken marriage or anything celebrity related is topic of conversation 24/7…
The level headed one
The stable person who has kind words for everyone and is the go-to person for making quick and measured decisions. Some people in the office will have the opinion that “there’s just something not right with that person” and there may be rumours that they don’t work as hard because they’re so calm, but it’s probably The Jerk making those claims.
The egotistical power hungry psycho
The person who has climbed only one rung of the ladder, yet behaves like a dictator. Avoid.
The control freak
Neat desk, different highlighters for different tasks, colour coded post-its, reaches a borderline nervous breakdown any time something slightly small and unimportant goes awry. You basically work with Sheldon Cooper.
The gym enthusiast
Whey protein at the ready! Instead of lunch, they eat dumbbells and use any spare time to either work out or talk about working out. When you talk about sports, they steer the conversation towards training regimes and what sports stars do in the gym rather than what actually happened in the match. Male gym enthusiasts tend to have an extremely weird and unexplainable infatuation with other males muscles and abs. Baffling!
They can tell you what is wrong with every single person in your place of work. The one thing they can’t see are the obvious gaping flaws they have themselves…
