1. The mail/maintenance guy that talks non stop.
Ready to have a two hour long conversation about mail? No? Well too bad! Because this guy has nothing better to do. His job takes about 2 hours to complete each day and the rest is reserved for having extensively long surface level conversation, while in the back of your mind you just want to get your reports done. But you do secretly like it when he starts going on conspiracy theory rants. Because who really knows what the government is covering up? Well, who except this guy.
2. The overly touchy boss.
Should I call HR?
3. The lady who always has problems.
Her dog is dying. Her kid got sent to the principle. Her car broke down. The things that you and I keep bottled up and suppressed with booze are open information for this lady. She is typically 20 years older than you and has been at the company the longest. Which just gives her one more reason to complain since she still hasn’t been promoted.
4. The person who is always working extra hours.
What are you trying to make us look bad or something? Chill out and dash out to the parking lot at 5 like rest of us.
5. The coworker that can’t remember your name.
You’ve been there 4 years. It’s time to give up the pipe dream that someone you spend 8 hours a day with will remember your name.
6. The mean lady.
She is probably over weight and still rocking a perm from the 80’s. She hates everyone and everything. Nothing will save you if you mess something up. If she has to send an extra email because of you expect to be on her hate list for at least a year. She will tell you how much she hates a co-worker. Then she will tell that co-worker how much she hates you. There will be no escaping her wrath till you find another job.
7. The person who is always sick, so you have to cover.
You’ve had the flu for 4 months running? You should maybe thing about going to the doctor. Enjoy your day off Ferris Bueller.
8. The guy who thinks he has a higher ranking than he does.
This is the classic Dwight Schrute syndrome. They think if everyone follows their commands the office will run perfectly. But no one is listening to you bossy pants.
But without all these people what would keep you entertained all day?
