Used to be a real asshole but for no apparent reason has suddenly started making an effort. Still a bit too intense though.

8) Ernst Blofeld (Dr No)

Complains to HR six times that HSE regulations mean the company is obliged to provide him with a high back swivel chair. Setting up an Instagram account for his cat and won’t stop talking about it.

7) Bane (Batman)

The guy in the office you constantly end up saying ‘ah yes’ to vaguely because you’ve already asked him to repeat himself three times and it’s starting to look rude. Very good at individual projects, not a team player.

6) The White Witch (Narnia)


Only does short term contracts and always hands in her notice at the end of February. Never comes to the office Christmas party.

5) Darth Vader

‘Oh my god, has anyone noticed Darth breathes REALLY loudly in meetings? It’s driving me nuts.’

4) The Wicked Witch of the West (The Wizard of Oz)

That one colleague who constantly bangs on about personal stuff, particularly the rift with her sister and how it’s going to make Christmas this year really awkward. Also totally obsessed with Claire in marketing’s red heels.

3) Ursula (The Little Mermaid)

The kind of colleague who files every email you ever sent in case she needs to use it against you at a later date. All exchanges should probably be verbal. Would make a very good lawyer.

2) T-1000 (Terminator 2)

Extremely good at catching the office lift. Not much of a talker. Everyone thinks he’s probably killed someone (‘it’s always the quiet ones’)


1) Lord Sauron

The absolute worst. Untrustworthy, malevolent, seems to know what everyone’s up to even when he’s not there and gets really angry when Martina from accounts finds his gold ring in the loo and hands it into lost property.
