Do you hold it down at work?

90 posts in this topic

At work I keep myself to myself just have manners

dont really get wraped up into people business

dont tell people much

keep all my talk to Tv and football

dont even really check the girls on that kinda level

had a few invites to go out with people

gone out on a couple things but keep myself to myself

for instance no one dont have no one at work on my fb

when they ask me to go out I will say I will go but just go home

and blaze weed you know how I am.

Any how some guy has pissed me off

nigger asked me to go somewhere I said yeah

but I know I was not going nowhere

next day man asked me why I never came I said I was busy

man started chattkng sh*t to me about materialistic things

that really pissed me off

man dont know sh*t about me or anything about my life and talked

to me about I like materialistic things, told my brother he got pissed

told me I should hot up the guy coz I am not like that at all I am not

materilistic and I look after people around me.

also another patronising thing is other black people surpised that I have a

job and say well done, like having a job is some huge feat its a normal thing

I would understand if i was 16 or sonething but I am pushing 30.

tbh I just want to go work and go home to my peoples

dont want to get caught up in their bollocks

How you man/girl deal with sh*t at work ?

coz I can feel myself flipping out and getting pissed at some of these people

but I just want to hold it down and do my work

Im chatty at work like to make friends get banter on the go helps pass the time

Im not that closed with people Ive found when you open up to people they do the same that applies everywhere but not strangers in the street etc obviously. Had some deep convo's and advice from a few people in work.

Theres a division in my team very much 2 different sides but Im doing my best to stay neutral until I have a reason not to. I know certain people can be bitchy but are friends with the bosses so now and again I'll go out of my way to do them a favour stay in their good books etc coz in the long run life will be easier.

Tbh mate if I wasnt gonna go I wouldnt say I was gonna. No one likes it when people do that. At the same time then you gotta make an excuse on the spot etc.

Only gone out with work mates ... 3 times - was a good laugh but all 3 times the company contributed or funded the whole night. If it was a random get together not so sure I'd go spend MY money.

always accept invites to go out after work. But never turn up, usual excuse is "something important came up" Ignore office politics. And completely erase any trace of work thoughts as soon as i finish. That way i don.t have to waste any thought about annoying manager's or whatever bs may of happened that day. Startin the next day with a clear head.

What Vtec said. I just either accept and dont show up or just say "maybe" and still dont show up. it really comes down to if you genuinely like the people you work with and enjoy their company and have jokes. That was the only time i went up with people from work, if they were cool. regarding the "materialistic" comment, just ignore those pricks that chat sh*t at work (everyone has someone like this working with them) because they have no impact on your life and its always normally the people who know nothing about you who do, besides, you only see em for a few hours a day then go home. Thats how i dealt with things.

keep myself to myself, get my p to feed my fam, then come home time, IM GONE! (rinse and rpeat the following day)

LOL @ ppl saying well done for having job when you a grown arse man :lol:

i try an keep myself to myself

do my work an keep it movin

talk about trivial sh*t mostly with them, when they ask me how my weekend was i dont go into a great amount of detail an jus say yh it was good yh

i dont even immediately remember what i did, but they wouldnt understand if i told them

hardly ever goe for drinks after work, only if i get caught on the hot an then i only go for one

dont think its possible to get very far career, promotion wise if u dont socialise with these people

but I can't, i can jus about bare being around them at work

i got mistaken for 2 other black women in the work place the other day on seperate occasions

poeple on this all black people look the same sh*t

i dont even look similar to none a dem, im not a 50 yr old african lady

i have to work for myself at some point, i cant cope with office politics

In the words of my old friend "I spend more time with you lot than my own friends and family" - probably true for most people who work full time.

When you think about it like that, you might aswell get on as well as you can with these people.

I've had the few times, where i've been out and i have no excuse, but i keep my presence sparse and then vanish like some stealth assassin. Or the only other exception is during work hours eg company paid lunch etc. Convo only circles around the usual safe topics.
