Aren't people always competing with each other? And even if you can genuinely care and be happy for someone else to move up, what if you get mad with each other and then you have to see that person every day? I have a friend who is dealing with a situation right now, with one of her work friends. They got mad at each other because my friend told her coworker friend that she needed to leave her boyfriend. Apparently the boyfriend is bad news to begin with, everybody knows it and my friend was just trying to be honest and protective. Well, the work friend got mad and pretty much told her to mind her own business and now it's super awkward between the two and the rest of their coworkers. This is because they were known as their job's besties, inseparable. So, can you be friends with people at work? Is that a no-no? How do you go about dealing with any type of work relationship? #advice #workfriends
Some people say having friends/relationships with people at work is critical to your success and some people think you're sucking up. Should we have work friends?
I worked a shop where we'd go out and bike and bowl and stuff with our store manager. I didn't really like him, but thought I had to (because everyone else did.)
