  • Yes, I do. I work at a very small restaurant (under 20 employees). We all are pretty friendly with each other some more than others. I babysat a coworkers kids when she was in a jam awhile back. Another coworker just watched my son this past Monday when I was in a jam. We're seriously like a family at times. I called my boss at 10:45 p.m. at home the other night to chat, which is totally o.k. with her.

  • I have, but the relationships seem to fizzle if one of us leaves the job.

  • I do with some of them, particulary those that my job tasks require me to interact with them regularly. Others, not so much. We don't share anything in common (at least not work wise), so it's hard to get that connection built up.

  • The ones I like.

  • I try to since I never have time to meet other people the rest of the week. I have a few coworkers I like to take lunch with, but it is rare we do anything after hours.

  • However, there's really no one that I would hang out with after work.
