Being a suck-up

Are you a suck up? Maybe you are and you just don't realize it. Or maybe, there are different levels along the "suck up gradient" and your further towards one end or the other but you don't want to admit it. Regardless, I found this interesting item:

The part about dogs made me laugh out loud, as I know quite a few people who would rather spend time with animals then the people in their families.

Still, this topic goes towards building relationships which helps with that all important performance evaluation (more people to pull positive impressions from) and in finding your next job. Do too much sucking up, though, and you can burn bridges with others.
