Office Politics

Just because you're work friends with someone doesn't make you bff's once you clock out. The occasional company hang-out after hours doesn't permit you to openly diss other coworkers, or say obnoxious things that in the work place would get you fired. It may not have the same effect in the bar, but it WILL follow you back to work and spread like wildfire.

Office rumors are going to be around forever. I choose to not take sides, and if I'm confronted with something I said, I can back it up because my answers aren't bitch-fueled anger spit with no basis. I don't particularly like inviting drama into my life, so if you don't mind I'm just going to watch from the sidelines.

If I opt out of company gatherings at ridiculous o-clock, it doesn't mean I hate my coworkers, it means I've seen enough of your faces all week and on my off time I have a real life.

I'm polite to all my coworkers, I mingle, I'm pleasant. I don't like some, I genuinely like others. It's work, not highschool. Turn off FB, stop talking shit about each other to me, and grin and bear it. —Leave it at the Office
