Do remember high school? The pettiness? The behind-your-back conversations? The snubbing of certain people "just because"? Boy - do I remember that. I hated high school. I couldn't wait to get out of there. Not to say I didn't have friends in high school, but man the overwhelming amount of little crap that went on drove me nuts.
And then I became an adult.
Somehow, I thought we had left all that petty, nit-picky, bullshit behind us. But, the longer I work in the the "real world" the more I realize that high school mentality still exists in the workforce. There are still cliques, snide looks, behind-your-back conversations and a lot of he-said/she-said. Its unfortuate that as adults, the same mindset still exists.
Do you deal with pettiness at work? How do you deal with (or not deal with) the drama thats created?
