    Default Workmates

    Just been thinking about my working life to date and I look around where i work now and the 3 people I work with the closest I absolutely hate to their very bones horrible horrible people who have no idea about commaraderie (SP) and revel in one up manship , I've come to the conclusion that it doesn't really matter how crud the job is its all about who you do it with !

    I agree with you totally on that. Used to work for the Civil Service Accounts and Finance dept, hated the job, but my colleagues were a total scream to be around.
    Light hearted banter and pi$$ taking made the days fly by!

    .... I worked very closely with three other guys in my last job over twelve years. Two were always whingeing & couldn’t do this or that due to this or that but the other well. We just got on so well, we sort of shared the job. Do you want to do this or shall I? Do you fancy changing your weekend or holiday? When I left he wrote in the leaving card ‘End of an Era’. We still see each other, good mates are hard to find. ...

    dont know how you can go in everyday if its like that, you are at work a long time...perhaps i am one of the lucky ones good banter in my workplace & enjoy the nites out too. still have bad days, fell out with the boss big-time yesterday. I would start looking elsewhere (easier said than done in current climate, i know) but chin up, dont lower yourself to their level, just let them get on with it.

    Vehicle : Insignia

    Trim : SRi

    Engine : 2.0 CDTI (160)

    Year : 2010

    Mileage : 26000

    Default

    I work in a buillding of about 250 people, of which I probably know each one at least enough to say hello and exchange a few words. Of these 250 or so people I can quite honestly say I only really like and get on with 6 of them (as mates and one is my wife!!). Most of the rest I cant stand, horrible people!!

    As said before most of the people are only out for personal gains and couldn't care less about anyone else, they never get on with the job and are always moaning about something or other!! There are two women within my team who are of the type that make it their ultimate goal to tell you something of no importance what so ever, and once they're done thats it theres no responding to them and they wont want to know!!, whatever they say is correct even if you have the actual truth written down infront of you, it's this type of person at work I cannot stand!

    My problem is I really like the job!, I just make do with the friends I have made and as Tadpole said - Good friends are hard to come by!
