"The Office" gave us many laughs and tears throughout the years. But what you might have missed was how it gave you an almost perfect look at the types of people you will inevitably be working with during your career. Whether it's a terrible boss or just an annoying intern — "The Office" made you ready for all of them!
The Know-It-All (Dwight)
Better watch what you say around this person. If there is anything false about what you say — they will call you out on it.
The Cool Cat (Darryl)
This person always knows what to say and is never phased by anything. This person is liked by everyone, but no one REALLY knows them.
The Klutz (Kevin)
Nothing goes right for this person, and it's almost inevitable that something bad will happen — most often caused by them.
The Prude (Angela)
Unless you are dressed like a Catholic nun, you will be judged…HARD!
The Functional Alcoholic (Meredith)
There's usually that one person who reeks of alcohol, but somehow always gets to work on time and gets stuff done. Just watch out at company happy hours.
The Loner (Toby)
The person, who sits in the back by themselves (maybe not by their choosing) is often labelled as the loner or the weird one. Often times, the loner is the butt of most office jokes.
The Horrible Boss (Robert)
It's inevitable — you will have at least one boss that you cannot stand to be around. Just smile and walk away.
The Bro (MIchael)
This person has no filter and says what's on their mind regardless of the situation. Get ready for some inappropriate jokes and high-fives.
The Creeper (Gabe)
Something about this person is just off — they are trying too hard to be friendly and it comes off a little weird.
The Bragger (Andy)
This person will constantly tell you about what they've done and who they know and will interject on every story with their own "personal experience." Also, don't worry about asking them where they went to college at — they will work that into every conversation.
The Intern (Ryan)
Usually an afterthought of most full-time workers. The intern works their tail off (usually for no money) just to gain experience in the field.
The Trainwreck (Kelly)
It's a different catastrophe everyday for this person. Whatever personal crisis you have dealt with in your life — add about 50 to that number, and that's how many they have a week.
The Grandpa (Creed)
That one guy who has been with the company since the beginning and always has trouble adapting to the changing technology. Don't bother sending him that email, just walk over and tell him what you need.
The Serious One (Stanley)
No jokes are tolerated around here. If it isn't work related, you might as well be talking to a brick wall.
The Troll (Jim)
Almost every office has a jokester — someone who feels comfortable enough to pull pranks on just about anyone. So watch your back!
The Fox (Pam)
She's the one good thing about coming to work each and every morning. No matter what's happening, she will always have a smile waiting for you.
