Hate it or love it? Avoid it or get in the middle of it? Personally I can't stand it. I don't take sides because it only creates animosity and tension in the work place. I'm there to make money, not friends. Friends are a nice bonus, but not necessary. I'd rather be neutral then on anyone's bad side. I had an issue today where the manager on duty asked me to finish something up before I left. I still had 10 minutes on my shift, so I did what was asked of me when another employee came back and said "You don't have to do that shit man, you've been here all day, get out of here, the GM wouldn't make you do it". I told him I really don't mind, that I was scheduled to 6, it's no biggie, I'll finish this. Well the manager and employee got into it as I finished the task asked of me. I really didn't pay attention to what it was about. Something about talking behind my back? Finally after I was done I stepped out and told them both that I really don't mind doing stuff and that I'm not taking sides here even tho they both tried to get me to take their side. They both seemed a little agitated about the fact that I wouldn't take sides. This is why I hate drama, if you avoid it, you stay neutral and not on someones shit list like what happened today.
