Lessons On Friendships!

Okay what I didn't know about people is that once you leave your former place of employment they leave you too. Here let me explain, what happened was I got a better postion at another job and my friend who I thought I was cool with just bailed on me. I mean when she found out I was going to another job with a better position and treatment she like totally iced me. I was thinking about keeping my other job as a second job but then again if she is icing me who's next? I know I'm not supposed to care about what others think of me but I'm sensitive and can't help but to feel a little down about that. I guess it comes with the territory right? Who knows for sure but I will try to reach out to her one more time and if I get ignored this time then hey I'm moving on.

I can't begin to tell you how many times I have gone through this. One girl was mad at me because I wouldn't go out with her everywhere as usual. The thing is she is fired from her job and she's looking for work. I had to go to orientation for my new job. I just couldn't believe she actually thought she could trick me with the we will be back on time line because she lied about that before and then every single time we are out she wants to talk me into calling out or calling in late. Never ever, because it's like the old saying you are what you hang with. If I were to be around her for another minute I would become lazy just like her and her habbits are not wise in the least

I'm not bashing the people I'm typling about in anyway, just that I have to express how I feel.

    Yeah, workplace "friends" are hardly friends. I used to work at a place where I thought things were going okay, and while I would never consider anyone there a friend, I would say we always got along as co-workers. Once I left to go to school, everything changed. I think I went back as a customer to shop for something, and the way they treated me was totally different. I know I wasn't the only one to notice this because a girl who left also had the same experience.

    I'd say just get used to it. Definitely do not call late or out if you don't need to--it reflects badly on you, too. I think you've figured that out, though.

    Rarely is it a good idea to continue a work relationship with someone after you have let. .
    I have found it's best to not mix business with pleasure, it never works.

    Some people but not all if it was a working relationship and you met this person durin the time after you were hired that person will have a hard time accepting when you it's time you move on and up to new and better employer.
    That's is what my experience has been in the work place. Although I haven't had many employers, in my last employment was an exciting job but I didn't make personal relationships outside of it.

    To make a long story short, it's best to not mix your work relationships outside of work.
    They don't need to know what you do in your personal life because it can come back to bit you.

    Just my opinion
