Here’s to the Fucking Weekend

“Did you hear about Wendy in Accounts and the toilet cubicle…?”

It’s late, I’m tipsy (“errrrrybody in the club”) and I’m thinking about the stories we tell when we’re propping up bars and making new work friends.

These stories they almost never get old, the who shagged who way back when stories. I love them. Nobody died, somebody necked too much Absinthe and the rest is workplace history, as they say.

I’ve been that girl in my time, who hasn’t? But now I’m settled, now I’m older and wiser, I live my life vicariously through the tales.

You learn a new story every time and it might sound mean to the outsider, but they’re (almost) always retold with love, rolled out at the same time of evening, like after dinner Scotch.

I’m staunchly against harmful gossip though. I mean, I love secrets obviously but I can keep them. There’s work gossip and then there’s the other stuff. There’s a difference, you know?

The couple who are not so secret swingers? Okay to gossip about since they’re so open about it. After hours shag in the office? Fair game if you ask me.

Shagging the boss? A bit of a grey area but since some of it was in front of colleagues, why not?

You get where I’m going right? The dos and don’ts of work gossip. I hope you do. It’s been a long day and I’m going to bed now to dream about puppies.

I didn’t personally do anything gossip-worthy tonight, but I did learn way way too much for my poor innocent heart to take.

(Not).

I loved every fucking minute.

Night night, and a very happy weekend ❤

  1. Oh, Yaaaays. I hear this, I hear you. I love office gossip of the non-harmful variety. Although now, I make an attempt to stop whatever it is so-and-so is about to share with me and tell him or her that if it’s about a good friend and it’s seedy, I don’t want to hear it. (If only everyone else in this small town of mine did the same.)

  2. Man, I think librarians must have mastered the art of sneakiness because I NEVER hear any scandalous gossip except as related to which student was watching porn in the building or what curriculum changes could affect our services.
    Either that or I just haven’t perfected the art of snooping.

  3. I can’t deny it, I love a bit of harmless gossip. With a workplace full of straight-out-of-uni age young people, there’s certainly a lot of dipping of pens in company ink (which I soak up gossip about, but definitely do not judge – after all, it’s how I met The Boy!) x
