How To… Survive your Colleagues
There’s that old saying about being able to choose your friends but not your family. That’s all well and good, but do you know what else you can’t choose? Your colleagues.
Mostly that’s not a problem. But sometimes… well, sometimes you’re left with the colleague from hell… which is far, far worse. Not only do you get to spend your working days with them, but the blow isn’t softened by the compensatory benefits which come with having relatives from hell. There’s no begrudging-yet-dutiful invitation to their wedding with the free bar, and there’s no outside chance that they’ll end up leaving you that lovely vase (kept in the family for years for sentimental reasons, but you actually suspect could be a Ming) in their Will when they die because your grandfather once bailed out their father’s business in the 70’s.
