Spinoff: Who are you REALLY?? Home vs. Work

Spinoff of other personality post!

Got me thinking... Who are we with peers opposed to those we truly cherish? Are you the absolute same, ALL the time? What type of persona do you have at each place?

At work I am a riot. We joke, curse a lot, and I say whatever pops into my head. Now, before you bash, I work with all men in a jail. A mostly male populated jail at that. I am mostly ok with what goes on. I feel like my humor is appreciated at work. At home I am much different... I am quieter and dial back the cursing. I only have one child so I am not boisterous, because I don't need to be. She gets to see the real me. The woman who likes to read, be silly, and give lots of love!!

What about YOU? Who are you when two different worlds are watching?!

**And this is not excluding SAHM's. Compare your home life to play groups/volunteer groups/church etc**

I adjust my behavior based on the audience, so yeah, I guess I'm different at home than other places. I definitely have a "mom" mode.

I am pretty serious at work. I joke around some but work comes first. At home I am much more relaxed.

May I ask what you do?

I hope no one gets the wrong idea. We are serious when we need to be but it's a type of job where if "You don't laugh you will cry." We try to keep it light or every negative aspect will affect us too.
