The Office – a potential minefield, especially at Christmas where spirits (especially those from a bottle!) are high. So how do you survive the Office at the most wonderful time of the year? Turn to the stars of the most famous office – BBC’s The Office – to guide and inspire you!
A boss like Brent: Well of course we all know David Brent is partial to a joke – as long as it is not at his expense! This guy loves to party, so show him your best moves at the party and you will probably get a raise in the new year – you can’t be a better dancer than Brent though – Who can forget the moment he fused Flash dance with MC Hammer?!
A colleague like Gareth – Territorial Army enthusiast Gareth certainly knows a few things (mainly about killing people in various ways) – Gareth would be eternally grateful with a secret Santa stocking full of tank experience days from https://www.armourgeddon.co.uk/tank-driving-experience.html. Failing that just get him a tenner in an envelope.
A mate like Tim – Joker Tim sometimes seems like the only one who knows what is going on in the place – the best guy to go to the pub with he will be making you laugh all night. Especially fond of pranking Gareth by putting his stapler in jelly and gluing his phone to the handset to name just a couple – but be careful if you happen to be Lee – he is after your girlfriend for himself!
A girl like Dawn – We all know that what Dawn really wants for Christmas is Tim – a talented artist, get Dawn to design your office Christmas cards and get her some mistletoe!
Keith the Accountant – Although one of Keith’s greatest strengths is accounts (luckily for his job) one of his greatest weaknesses is eczema! Get Keith at your office party and you can be sure that he will turn up in the best outfit if his Ali G get up is anything to go by!
The top Boss Jennifer Taylor Clarke – You have to feel a bit sorry for Jennifer – managing David Brent can’t be an easy task for anyone! Some relaxing bath oils and a nice bottle of wine would probably be the best gift for Jennifer!
