    No. But I can name everyone who has!
    I know the company policy and would never break the rules.

    Sure, but only if the person has potential to be "more" than just a co-worker.
    If you can't keep up, you should get a new job.
    They need to learn. I will teach them how to do it properly.

    I don't leave my cubicle for anybody.
    Sure if it means bashing the boss and dishing some gossip.

What Kind Of Co-Worker Are You?

You got: The Optimist

At work, you are generally happy and get along well with your co-workers. The pessimists are always weary of your friendliness but they are bound to come around. You are helpful and courteous. You are awesome to work with and are a team player, but take it down a notch, you're making others look bad. Pet peeve = negativity.

You got: The Flirt

Sure you do your job. But you pride yourself in being the hottest person in the office. Fake laugh, check! Hair flip, check! You have all the right moves and know how to use them. Although you should probably reserve those moves for outside the workplace. You have probably dodged a potential suitor or ex in the workplace, on at least one occasion. Pet peeve = relationships.

You got: The Pessimist

You generally do not like going to work. You constantly job search and try to find something better but deep down you accept that any job you take will be worse than the job before. If complaining is the game, you are the master general. Overly happy/friendly people make you nauseous. You sometimes wonder how you get through the day surrounded by morons. Luckily your sarcastic comments are humorous and generally well received. Pet peeve = anybody happier than you.

You got: The Know-It-All

You know it all. Well actually you just think you do. You jump at the chance to prove someone wrong. Policies and procedures? You have them memorized to impress at moments notice. Your answers tend to be long-winded and after the first 5 minutes of listening to you, your co-workers start to experience symptoms such as twitching, eye rolling, and bitch face. Never noticed? That's because social cues have never been your thing. Pet peeve = being wrong.

You got: The Nosey Neighbour

You like to think you are the "vault" of secrets but you spread more gossip than TMZ. When drama hits, your are the first to be a part of the action. Personal conversations? Are for outside work hours, anything overheard is fair game. Grab your popcorn and a comfy chair because, as usual, you have the best seat in the house. Pet peeve = secrecy.

You got: The Hermit

You keep to yourself. And probably for the best. People are generally scared when you speak, since you never do. Your cubicle is your sanctuary. Pet peeve = human contact.
