We all have that one coworker… you know, the one who tries too hard to be your friend. The one who is totally entertaining to chat with during the day, exchange side-eye with during meetings, or vent to occasionally. But are you going to actually befriend this person outside of work hours, especially after leaving the job? Absolutely not!
This thread, which was posted to Reddit’s r/AmITheA**hole subreddit by u/Future_Wrangler_5817, is a great example, however, of what not to do with that coworker. No matter how annoying they are or how ridiculous they may be, it is so much easier to just smile, be nice, and never actually text them after you leave. Telling off your coworker and making them feel awful is just a waste of your time. Chances are the coworker was also just being polite and wasn’t actually trying to maintain a friendship.
