We all have a mixed bag of a****les at work, but here are the major categories.
Jerk Type 1: The whinging whiny
This one will only whinge all..day…long about how much they have on their plates, how unfair it is for them to do all this work with no recognition, and how they are not looking for rewards but they would like to be acknowledged for it. They are the only ones who care and how it frustrated them to see others just not give a tiny rats ass about anything around. They are saying how awesome they are but in the tone they have mastered.
All they are asking is…..praise me, pity me, I am a saint.

I love how Smilyes can add that emotional touch to rather a bland sounding sentence. it sends across the emotion that the writer wants you to read that in.
“Thank you” can sound as formal at the end of the email as the reader wants to take it.
“Thank you 🙂 ” can take it to a whole new level and make it a bit personable.
If I am in a bad mood / I am at cross with a person – I am not going to take any written text in the best way possible. A smiley though, makes a little bit of difference, if not a lot, to make me a little more relaxed.
And one of my colleagues is amazing at putting Smileys while thanking everyone, well she is great at thanking everyone too! She inserts such refreshing smileys and clip arts that it just makes your day. If you classify being professionalism as eliminating such girly stuff…well then what she does is not professional. But in this world of sharing a funny photo of your colleague to the entire workplace and piggy back riding your boss at a drunk party….the lines are sure smudging.
