Did you ever stop to wonder why the television sitcom The Office, which features a first-class office jerk — the boss, no less — is so popular? Simple. For starters, it’s a theme to which so many of us can relate. If you’ve ever worked in an office, chances are you’ve encountered an office jerk — that annoying co-worker whose ridiculous antics or downright inappropriate behavior wreaks havoc on the productivity and morale of every other office employee. It’s also a lot easier to laugh at the office jerk whose cubicle is nowhere near yours.
