    How do you avoid falling into politics at work

    so that you can maintain your career? Do you listen without giving much of an opinion? Do you change the subject? I tend to ignore a lot of negative comments. What are some strategies you use and what's the longest you've been with an organization?

    I have a decent job,

    but since I separated, I started driving for Uber. it's ok, I enjoy meeting people, but the money is not as good as they say in the commercials. So now I work 60 hours a week, to support a family and home I am no longer able to enjoy. But I am happy, it's been a long time.

    I feel so alone. I keep wanting to follow the employee handbook and my operation manager wants the crew to fall in line like a cows. My boss never wants the facts. He only wants information that supports his narrative.

    I was asked by my boss

    if I wanted to be promoted to assistant manager. I've worked for this restaurant for 5 1/2 years and that's a big step for me. I want to take it because I'll get more experience and a raise, but I'm afraid of how my co-workers will treat me.
