A Kiss ass is commonly known as a person who will go to many lengths to look impressive, good, and worthy towards another person or group of higher social standing.

This is usually due to their need to ascend in the ranks of their workplace, school, or society in general.

In their quest for higher status and privilege, they will become unguarded and their peers will begin to notice how fake and transparent their attempts are.

A Kiss ass will most definetly seem fake due to the fact they don't actually give a shit when people watch how fake they are.
Ted's co-workers knew he was a Kiss ass because he never went to TGIF with them, and instead went out with the boss.

Someone who tries too hard to impress someone. Most likely a student to a teacher or an employee to a boss. They try to make themselves noticed, and the person on the receiving end usually tries to respond in a polite way. Everyone else think’s that the kiss ass is a little bitch and an attention whore. Most of the time they are socially inept. They think they are better than everyone.

A true kiss ass is not somebody who's been nice to somebody else. A true kiss ads is somebody who's friendly with authority figures so that the authority figures will take care of them when times get rough.
True kiss ass- Officer, he threatened me. Go arrest him, he's being mean to me!
Police or other authority figure- I don't want to hear what the guy did any more. Take control yourself and quit running to me about everything.

Not a kiss ass-
Guy- Have a nice day.
Other guy- You're a kiss ass sir.
Guy- No, I've said something to you about your day, no more, no less. Fuck you and your day.

A kiss-ass, otherwise known as a teacher's pet, brown-noser, or in case of the office, a 'Yes,man/woman', is a person who will constantly suck up to a person in a higher position, hoping to gain attention and/or favor.

They are the ones who are in the office on weekends (usually the only ones there), while everybody else is having fun. Or they are usually the first ones there and the last to leave.

They generally allow themselves to be stepped on, walked over, and shit on, all in the hopes their efforts will be noticed by their superiors.
