Being a jerk around the office is sure to either get you fired or beat up in the employee lounge when the boss is gone on vacation. Below are 3 types of office jerks that you should most certainly avoid becoming.
1. The “I know-it-all” office jerk.
It’s perfectly fine if you think you know it all; just don’t let on the same feeling to others in the office. If you go around the office acting like you’re some knowledge base and trying to solve everyone’s problems, you’ll simply end up looking like a dbag. It’s best to just be humble, as hard as that may be at times and offer insight only once in awhile. You’re at the office to do your job, not everyone else’s.
2. The “I could get any chick” office jerk.
The moment you start acting like you could bang any chick that works at the office is the moment you stop getting laid altogether. Acting like this is a sure way to earn you creeper status with your female coworkers. If you walk around the office as a nice guy, there’s a lot better chance of you scoring; just keep in mind the sexual harassment stuff- nobody likes a guy who has been busted at the office for that.
3. The “I make more money than you” office jerk.
This is certainly the worst jerk you could become at your office. If you make more money than someone at your office, don’t brag about it. Have some good office etiquette and remain humble. Your coworkers will appreciate that while you have a better position than they do, you respect them and don’t tout it around.
The best way to keep from being a jerk at the office is staying away from other jerks- peer pressure can be a mother effer, though.
