    • Basically they are just people I work with but also my friends on FB. So I guess the somewhere in betweenhappy They are all way younger than me so they have their own social life as I have mine. But when we are at work we joke around with each other and have each other’s back. I couldn’t ask for nicer co-worker friendsheartheart Funny, and team players.

    • Company has over 300 people, and 40 in my department alone. A select few I consider friends within the entire company, but mainly just people I work with. I didn’t even “like” the company which has the nerve to have a FaceBook page. Some I have as FaceBook friends, but that’s just because we work together. When I leave, I’m un-friending several of them!

    • This has been on my mind this week with all the turmoil that has gone on.  None of us really socialize outside of work, but then none of us really has a social life either.  

       We are a team at work, but I realized we are a big family too.  The two new waitresses are sort of like the new daughters-in-law that everyone is trying to include, but also waiting to see if they fit in.  We’ve been together thru milestone birthdays, aging parents, graduations, raising teenage waitresses, and now disability and death.  

      I consider myself blessed to work with the people I do.

    • TL...that is great you all have a great relationship. If you think about it..for those of us who work full time...we spend more awake time with our co workers than we do with our own family and friends.
      It’s awful when you don’t get along with your co-workers.  I’m grateful to get along with mine too!

    • I socialize with most of my co-workers, but don’t hang out with any after work. Sadly, there are a couple who turn the other way as if I’m a nobody.

    • Neicy, I’ve worked places like that.  It’s a horrible feeling.  I hope you can find something else soon.

      Mary, so true...and I talk more to my coworkers than I do to my husband.

    • Hi Tulip, it bothers me NOT that I don’t have a social relationship with them especially after hearing nothing but miserable stories about their lives when they sit around the table and swap them, I on the other hand remain mute and not congregate with them. Its not a horrible feeling for me because I rather have it where they keep their disatance from me I don’t like being close to miserable people. LOL.

    • I have a very small team that I work with, just one other woman and another guy.  We get along okay...the team lead, Michele, invited us over one day for some snacks at her house.  But other than that, we don’t hang out.

    • My “coworkers” are in other states. The people I see when I go to work are my employees. So I can’t say that I am friends with any of them. I am ever mindful of not imposing on them or making them feel like they have to be friends with me. I leave it up to them and so far a few of them have friended me on FB and have invited me to their church.

    • Dear Tulip,  

      This is a subject near and dear to my heart.  I have been
      “the boss” for the past 15 years, and that means I cannot get close to my co-workers.  It is rather lonely at times, to be honest.  However, I firmly believe that once you cross that line, there is NO GOING BACK.  Kind of like getting married - easy to get into, a lot harder to get out of.
