Star Wars is a widely popular Sci-Fi classic with larger than life characters. But did you know that pretty much every office ever has people who resemble these characters? Here are some of the classic characters you can likely find without ever leaving your cubicle.
1. The Chewbacca
He’s the guy who uses every excuse to grow a beard and avoid shaving. It’s Movember. It’s the playoffs. It’s Tuesday.
2. The Darth Vader
Deep in the recesses of your office, there’s an executive so mysterious, so powerful, that his emails keep everyone in line without a peep. Did those interns really go back to school at the end of the summer, or did they run afoul of the Dark Side?
3. The C-3PO
If you ask this guy why company policy says you’re not allowed to keep a space heater at your desk, expect a long-winded lecture about building circuitry and OSHA regulations. At a social event, this is the person who will happily spend an hour telling you intricate details about his fantasy baseball stats.
4. The Obi-Wan Kenobi
This person has been there so long that she has become the default oracle for all things that happened at least two company name changes ago. And if you ask nicely, she can tell you why that weird company policy has been around since 1994.
5. The Yoda
You email with a straightforward yes/no question, you get back a formal letter with 15 rhetorical questions, 3 anecdotes, and at least one invitation to do discuss the matter further on the phone.
6. The Han Solo
This hotshot is the first to complain that there are too many meetings and nothing gets done. He threatens to quit at least once a week, but is always there come Monday morning.
