The 25 Species of Coworkers

Alice Handley and Kayla Baxter

The Thief

What they do:

The Thief may draw the line at picking your pocket (we hope!), but they’re more than happy to “forget” to return your stapler or eat your last container of yogurt out of the office fridge. Whether they’re a not-so-closet kleptomaniac or they just really hate you, at least they aren’t actually clever enough to steal your ideas — that’s the Smiling Backstabber’s territory — but they’re irritating all the same.

How to deal:

Keep track of your stuff! Write your name on everything you possess, and we do mean everything. That way if the Thief strikes you’ll be able to prove it’s yours, and call them out on it. Nothing embarrasses a kleptomaniac like getting caught red-handed!
