Have you noticed:
* When lost for words in a conference call, the Smart-Alec would collect his thoughts and start by saying "Oh! I never realized I was speaking to a muted phone"
* When Smart-Alec gets a company-wide mass mailer asking for some specific help, he would "Reply-all" knowing very well that the rest of the organization didn't reply as they don't care or they don't have a clue what it is it about.
* When Smart-Alec goes for a large group lunch at the office canteen, he would ensure that he is last in the line for buying coupons
