An Abrasive Doormat is a type of person which has learned to play the boss-worker system to their advantage. In front of their superiors, they will act humble and diligent. They will even take abuse, letting themselves be treated like a doormat by those who are able to hurt them. In this, they are wise. They retain their employment by taking abuse from those above them.

However, when it comes to those who cannot harm them, this type of person is abusive. These people who act like doormats to the faces of their employers will treat those equal to or below them as if they were doormats.

They respect their own kind, namely those who have learned this form of hypocrisy. But anyone who doesn't know how to play their little game they insult. And anyone who is brave enough to speak out against mistreatment they ridicule with all their might and seek to sabotage them for the sake of their own game.

They throw epithets and megatons of stinging words at any who would speak out against the system that they have learned to play. And that is exactly it, these nasty hypocritical manipulators have taken so long to learn to play this system that they don't wish for this horrid system to be challenged, much less altered.
Underling: "How can anyone put up with this kind of boss?... it is just impossible."

Abrasive Doormat: "Heard you got coached, what did you do?"

Underling: "I didn't really do anything, I just tried to explain to the boss that..."

Abrasive Doormat: "What!!! You spoke to the boss trying to explain something to him? How naive of you, you impertinent, immature, foolish, knave of a n00b! Ha ha ha ha haw!!! You deserve what you get!"

Underling: "WTF?! How is it even possible for you to say such things if you have a brain in your skull?!"

Abrasive Doormat: "Oh and now you dare to insult me! I'll see about that!"

*Abrasive Doormat goes tattling and reports as many reprehensible things about Underling as is possible to invent.*
