10 Types Of People You Encounter In Every Office
Work and life have become intertwined. Just like our gol-gappas – you miss an ingredient and you have a bland and tasteless plate in your hand.
Friends at work come in all varieties and without them life would be tasteless. There are at least 10 types of spicy characters that are found in every office. Let us mention a few of them:
1. The Smart Chap
This guy completely believes in ‘not working hard’ but ‘working smart.’ He comes up with easy and quick solutions to his problems. After the work is done, he will just roam or enjoy a ‘sutta!’ He is often nick named as a ‘chimney.’
2. ‘Office hai, Kaam Karo’ Friend (The Yes Man)
He is the boss’s favourite. During the working hours, he is sincere and a all too serious employee. He has a resounding "Yes!" for every work asked by the boss. He is the first to arrive and the last to leave. One question may definitely pop into your mind: “Does he ever sleep?”
3. The ‘Bahanebaaz’ Long Distance Commuter
He shows up a half hour late every day, and has a well-planned reason daily. Being a long distance commuter he has the advantage of being late without facing the wrath of the Boss. He also sneaks out before 5 and dumps his pending work on his subordinates.
4. The ‘Pass-It- On’ Expert – The Kaamchor
This guy really hates to work! He is good at passing on his assigned work to someone else. He uses his smart brain to get rid of his work and pass it onto other desks.
5. The Helping One
This guy is probably the most loved one of the lot. He is always ready to help his colleagues no matter how busy he may be. He is your Samaritan and a soft hearted person. Rehamdil Insaan!
6. The Sick One
This guy is always sick! In fact, the staff has stopped asking him why he was on leave, because they all know the answer – ‘Tabiyat Kharaab Thi.’
7. The ‘I-Want- To-Leave- Early One’
This guy always has some excuses or a plan to leave early. His brashness of leaving early all the time, not only annoys the manager but also irritates you.
8. The Party Animal
There are two types people – (1)-those who party on weekends and (2)-those who don’t wait for a weekend to party. At the drop of the word. ‘PARTY’, this colleague is ready to hit the floor. Small instances makes him ask you for a party.
9. The Desk-eater
This colleague of yours eats at all hours of the day. The desk of this colleague is always occupied. Hide your lunch box from such a ‘Bhukkad.’
10. The Silent Hero (The Thinker)
This guy is the real hero of the project. This person is always silent and lost in his work. He keeps things to himself and is shy. ‘The foot-in- the-mouth’ syndrome suits him. But do not be deceived by his exterior, for he can be a genius having new ideas and ready solutions in your project meetings.
Irrespective of their habits you still love your co-workers. After all, you are a team!
