During the daily grind, you probably run into a few people who have a "thing." You know, the co-worker who loves to dish the latest gossip at the water cooler, or the one who comes in at the start of the day, puts on headphones, speaks to no one, and clocks out at the stroke of 5 p.m. It's possible that you are the co-worker who thinks emailing people every hour, on the hour, is a good idea, but hey, we won't judge you. Much. Here are 22 types of people you may run into at some point at the office.
The Easily Distracted
The Clock Watcher
They are out the door at 5 p.m. on the DOT.
The Overly Political
Save it for your blog, people.
The Socially Awkward
Somehow you find yourself alone with them, ALL the time.
Everything is literally the end of the world for this person.
The Lunch Thief
The Single and Looking (Unsuccessfully) to Mingle
Just give up.
We get it, you're awesome.
The Co-Worker Who Emails Every. 5. Seconds.
Or hits "reply all" in a group message with the whole company.
Some things about your private life, we just DON'T need to know.
They have no shame and will say or do anything if it means getting on your boss's good side.
The Perpetually Stressed
Someone get this person to a yoga class, PRONTO.
The Coffee Addict
Do not, we repeat, DO NOT attempt to interact with them until they have had their morning joe.
The Disgruntled Co-Worker
They are pretty much over it. All of it.
They are the whip-crackers, and they lay down the law with merely a look.
The Office Gossip
Watch yourself around this one . . .
The Health Nut
You sneak cookies when they aren't looking so they can't judge you.
The Office Entertainer
Aka the equivalent of a class clown.
The Co-Worker Trying to Be Friends Outside of Work
The Actual Friend Outside of Work
They keep us sane.
