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?

Look (UK) - - CONTENTS -

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.
