10 Types Of Colleagues That Exist In Every Workplace

It doesn’t matter if we’re talking about the Kennedy Space Center or a kebab kiosk down the street, there are certain types of people you’ll meet in every workplace. As a commission for toggl, Elizabeth Pich of War and Peas (previously here and here) has created a comic, introducing all 10 of them.

“[My creative partner Jonathan and I] have hardly worked in offices, but when we did, we tried to befriend the office dog,” Elizabeth told Bored Panda. “That’s usually the best way to stay sane. If there is no office dog, we don’t work there.”

“All of these [types] are based on actual colleagues we’ve worked with. You know who you are.”

According to Elizabeth, the complainers are the worst. “They suck the energy out of others. Try to make yours pet the office dog, [but] if that doesn’t cheer them up, they’re hopeless.”

On the other hand, the UFO experts have been Elizabeth and Jonathan’s most favourite colleagues. “They have the best stories. We love alien stories.”

Scroll down to meet the gang, and if any of you freelance and remote workers try to laugh at our misery, I have three words for you – clients from hell.

What about the person who is always doing the very bare minimum amount of work in order to not be fired? And the one who always arrive late and/or takes too long at lunch but nobody ever says anything.

The disgusting one - never cleans up after themselves, or washes hands in the restroom The one who constantly talks about their children Me- AKA the odd one. Wears headphones around the office to avoid conversation. Talks to no one, uninviting in general. Data person on a sales team.

Oh, we have one like these. The cleaning ladies provided him a separate garbage collection, yes you got it right. That's not in the bin, it's just what he leaves around.

I'm the one who works from home. The mythical creatures that people only talk to through hangouts and only shows up in person to certain meetings and to pick up their check and gets met with "oh, hey, you're here today" or "oh, so you're XX?" every time.
