At the office, I often observe things between some colleagues that instantly reminds me when we were in high school. Back then, we used to hang out in group, fall in love with every guy in the school/ or just focus on one we know we could never have. We used to have a school whore, the one who slept with all the guys in the school. We could be fierce with a rival just to get one guy. Some girls had their admirers/ court…
At the office, it’s the same. Except that kids come into the equation now ( sometimes) . In my company, we have our office whore: she has slept with every single male available and now I hear them talking about what she did with them with many, many details. We have two couples who fight all the time. We have single colleagues who try with every woman in the company (and who has been turned down by many of them) . I see a female journalist having her admirers/ court and making everything possible to keep it. The freshly arrived journalists are the objects of all attention. Some of them, who are single, are looking at you as if they want to undress you with their eyes. I know some people in the company who are secretly in love with one of their colleagues, who don’t have a clue about their feelings. I saw one of them helping the object of his affection for a project and got nothing in return.
I observe some colleagues having a very close relationship. They always talk together about many things but stop immediately when someone joins them. My team is making fun of me because a guy from another unit always comes to my desk to ask me many useless things for work and another one is acting like the coyote chasing the roadrunner that is me.
And the older people in the company don’t necessarily act wiser than their younger counterparts.
