  • Probably not, if we are that different in our work ethics, not sure what we could have in common for a strong friendship.

  • No thank you! I would resent them, so it would be real hard to befriend them.

  • I think it would be hard, and if he/she doesn't really want to work and tries to distract you, they could also affect you and your job. Aren't you afraid that it might be a factor if you happen to lose your job?

  • It's hard. I have been able to leave work stuff with work and be friends at other times.
