A term reserved for the utmost of inter-office loiterers. Their "work" day is spent solely upon interrupting the work flow of others by inflicting a consistent barrage of physical banter, task delfection, and questions that have nothing to do with the operations of their work environment. Also commonly referred to as "That Guy," a Thorpe is the ultimate one-upper in any conversation, especially those they were not invited to participate in.
That guy is such a Thorpe! Honestly, can anyone tell me what he does here?
