Have you ever any work relationships gone bad that made things really uncomfortable? I know often it is dealing with an unreasonable coworker, but it does not make it any easier. We here about kids who deal with bullying at school, but we can also find that in the workplace. When I had my very first job at a popular fast food restaurant, I had a difficult work relationship. It got to the point that it was a struggle to even get up and go to work after school each day. I made the mistake of dating a co-worker and when we broke up, things at work got toxic very quickly. The sad thing is the environment was not only awkward for us to work in, but for our fellow employees as well. On a brighter note, I finally got in the last word when we were closing down at the end of the night. My ex was mopping the floors and thought it would be funny to hit me in the back with the wet mop. I was a little bigger then he was, so I pushed him into the dirty water from the mop bucket and he never bothered me again! If you have been watching the hit TV show “The Good Wife“, you know there is definitely some work relationships gone bad in that office!
