Types Of Office Workers
Me been working for the past 20 over years and have seen many different types of workers. Just to share some of them with you:
This kind of colleague very the no-shiok one cos he is always having a "poker" face who is very quiet; Always minds he own business with a "don´t play play attitude". Although he doesn´t offer to lend a helping hand when he knows you need one but most of the time he is very much obliged to help if he is been approached. He is that kind you don´t ka-jiao me, me no chap you and life just goes on happily ever after.
The Mr OK
From the name me branded him you know he is the "OK" man aka "YES" man. Me salute this type of worker cos he seldom gets angry, everything and anything also no problem. The good point of being a Mr OK is that many female colleagues will like him or merely just taking advantage on him.
The Talk Only Man
This is the half past six in-depth knowledge person but thought he knows everything under the sun. All he knows is to talk and talk and talk only and when he is been query further when he cannot answer, he will siam far far away immediately.
The Always Busy Man
Me very scared to work with this type of worker: Just imagine, a worker who never stops working, every minute sure got something to do one, sometimes even no time to go to the toilet also. You will see piles and piles of paper and files all over his work-station and he is one worker who comes in early and leaving late; Sometimes makes me wonder he so bo-eng what?
The Pokemon Man
This type of man really the Jia-lat one but unfortunately, there is at least one in every company. He masters the act of "fingering"- behind poke poke until you bleed to death also don´t know. Don´t think you can be-friend him so he will let you go, no way la. This type of Pokemon Man no friends one la, don´t even think about it.
The animal-lover, Snakeman, always goes to the toilet; to the pantry and out of the office premise for a smoke. Coming to work late and leaving early and of course have longer lunch time and tea breaks than anyone else. The best part is we are sure that our boss knows such Snakeman around but just no action taken against him leh, funny?!?
The Tidbits Man
Me referring to "tidbits" not "tit bits", don´t confused hor, especially Lau Hero, always confused one. This type of colleague very the good one especially when you need to work overtime cos his work place is like a mini 7-Eleven: simi also have - soft drinks; biscuits; tidbits; hot beverages; keum-sng-tee; maggie mee; etc etc...The saviour.
The Telephone Operators
This type of worker is always talking on the line, to darling, spouse, friends, family members and always using the phone. Sometimes me hear the aunties talking to their friend about their children going to school la then "East family long, West family short" non-stop until of course when it is lunch time.
The Garang Gunee Man
The Garang Gunee Man is always taking office stationeries back for own personal use. The common items are pens, papers, pencils, paperclips, liquid-paper; ruler, etc etc, probably to make up for the low salary paid to him but hello, a crime is a crime, doesn´t matter the value of the items you take home.
The Strong Background Man
A piece of advice hor since we all so friend friend. The Strong Background Man is one person you must not crash with unless you have decided to fry the boss cuttle-fish. He with the BOSS as firm backbone, he is already classified as "The Untouchable", so even if he is very the ya ya papaya, just avoid him as much as you can. What to do, toto never kena, hung-cheng so bad now, later no job worse leh.
The Corporate Spy
This is one worker I don´t really understand. He is forever spying on colleagues´ performances and to the extend of taking down as notes. ??? He must be too free and wants to compare one another´s job.
Me very sure there are some more many other types of workers around us but think me will stop here. Ah yes, another type of worker lately is the one who uses office time and computer to write blog, ha ha ha.
