7 Tribes Every Office Has
We spend most of our daily life with them but we have a very Marmite relationship with some of our colleagues, Here are the seven of the most common cliques found in every work place so which one are you?
1 The Monday Dieters
After an exhausting weekend of chocolate treats and pints of Pinot, this clique has a collective diet that starts on Monday (again). Salads are bought, green juices are drunk and chia seeds are sprinkled… ’til Tuesday afternoon when someone brings round a birthday cake. Well, it would be rude not to, wouldn’t it?
2 THE workaholics
More annoying than the ‘lazeaholics’. After arriving at work an hour earlier than everyone else (you do know you’re not paid for that, guys?), they’re powering through their unread emails before you’ve even made a cup of coffee. And don’t expect to be coaxing them to the pub either – they’ll still be pounding away at their laptops when you leave. It’s a wonder they don’t just set up camp in the office.
3 The Box-set Addicts
It’s a new month and a new series has debuted on Netflix, and of course Sally from accounts just needs to discuss it. Stick close to these guys and you won’t ever need to watch the shows yourself as they’ll tell you all about them.
4 The Busy Un-productives
The ones that always claim to have 101 things to do and seem constantly busy, but their list never seems to diminish and they don’t appear to actually get anything done. Walk past their screen at any point in the day and you’ll see Facebook, Twitter and Instagram tabs all open… ah, so that’s what they’re doing, then.
5 The Ones Who Are Always Late
They own all manner of devices to show them the correct time, yet they’re flying into the meeting at 50mph after everyone’s sat down. And you can’t remember the last time you saw them walk into the office less than 10 minutes after everyone else. Better late than never, eh?
6 THE Tupperware Enthusiasts
As we’re tucking into yet another £5 sandwich, they’re smugly unpacking their pre-made lunch. Look, we envy your organisation and motivation to be far healthier than the rest of us, we really do. But why do you always have to choose the smelliest choice of lunch? Come on, you know it’s true.
7 The Live Travel Updaters
It starts with an innocuous Tweet about how rubbish Virgin Trains are and ends with a blow-by-blow Snapchat story about their #world’sworstjourney. Thank you, we get it – your train line’s part-suspended yet again.
