Work Related

After I graduated from College, I got a job as an Environmental Consultant, and was put on a huge Demolition project for the state, during this time I was befriended by a guy in our company,  he was an older guy pretty cool. We would chill after work at bars or restaurants, he met my wife and i met his. We had a really good personal relationship outside of work. Well I got put on this huge high profile job and was the lead project manager on-site, well it was stressing so after work wed have beers n id talk about all the problems that were going on with the project, well what i didn't know at the time was each time wed talk about work, he would go behind my back n tell my boss, to make me look like an ***. Well what he didn't know was that everything he would tell on me, was already communicated to my boss and he was just repeating stuff that I said. Then my boss told me all of this stuff i mean i seen emails everything, and when i confronted him about it he didn't even have the balls to look me in the eye and admit it.

U too huh, i was piised off too i mean i know office politics comes with the territory but actions always speak louder than words

Yep, you can but I think we need to be friends before the whole working together situation.

Interesting quote about betrayal.

There is definitely a line between work and friendship. sometimes you can find a true friend at work but i feel that comes over years and time. you cant trust anyone you just meet at work because a lot of people just want to come up by any means neccessary. until you can trust them and their motives i would keep conversation very basic. I learned that the hard way too.

LOL nahhhhhhhhhhhh Yeah i hear you i just had to learn the hard way, and not unloading problems, If ur my friend regaurdless if we work together then i can tell u anything right???

Difficult to find someone who can relate to what you're talking about, work wise. And yet, it's not recommended either to unload problems on colleagues.<br />

So, have you started thinking about joining the under the bridge community? We have benefits, too! LOL.
