How to work on this?

My boss says I'm a little rough around the edges.

Not to customers but to associates. She said it doesn't bother her because she's not sensitive to that kind of stuff but there are sensitive people who may think I'm unapproachable.

Idk. I mean I am who I am ya know? I don't have a whole lot of time to socialize at work because we are so busy I just need to take care of customers and get stuff done. I didn't realize that made me seem rough.

I have socialized with people there but usually I'm just very focused on getting work done so maybe I don't do it as much as anyone else.

How can I fix/work on this? I feel really bad cause I feel like maybe people think I'm mean or something which I don't intend to be at all. I just don't feel like there's a lot of time to talk/socialize/whatever.

No it wasn't. I am betting people have talked to the boss about the op. The way she acts to her coworkers could cause a hostile and uncomfortable work environment.

Not really...  It's her job.  If other associates think she's hard to deal with - she's supposed to say something.

She isn't there to make friends. She's there to make money.

I disagree. She doesn't have to strike up conversation at every given opportunity. Focusing on her job should be her number one priority.

Just smile, look at people passing by, say hi, you don't have to go out with people, just listen & respond politely

This has nothing to do with making friends. Clearly you took it to heart because you behave the same way.
