Geek Of The Week: Dwight Shrute

If you’ve ever seen an episode of The Office, you’ll recognize this week’s GOTW. Dwight Shrute is an employee at the fictitious firm of Dunder Mifflin. Though his official title is Assistant To The General Manager, Shrute often forgets the words “to the” and calls himself the Assistant General Manager. Before coming to work for Dunder Mifflin, he was a Sheriff’s Deputy and his collection of odd weaponry and surveillance equipment reinforces this fact. Being socially awkward, and somewhat eccentric, Shrute is the geek of The Office. He is constantly trying to “one up” everyone and impress his boss, Michael Scott. Though the viewers find him annoying at times, he is always good for a a laugh and occasionally even saves the day.
