Strap yourselves in for a juicy one
Always had this instinct that work relationships should be approached with caution…you spend ages coming up with an excuse to get the office honey alone to ask her out for a drink outside of work whilst at the same time wondering what to say when she shoots you down and exposing the tragic set of affairs to everyone else in the office.
So the plan was to get work bae on her own away from everyone by asking her for a few minutes to talk her through the fire evacuation procedure (I work for a company who manage a building and lease office space)
This I thought was an awesome plan until work announced everyone needed to move out as the building had been sold by the building owner for redevelopment……Suddenly the need for going through the fire procedure was flawed as we were now set to leave in 5 weeks.
Since then I’ve been developing a relationship with work bae that goes further then just ‘how has your morning been’ trying to make traction before we are both taken from each-other (modern day Romeo and Juliet story)
As I write this I have two more days before the company she works for leaves and the opportunity walks out the door with her.
That said there is a plan b – A couple of her colleagues have accepted my friend request on Facebook – The formation of friendship had been easier with these individuals as we share the same ‘office banter’
Like Joanne and that cous cous from Marks & Spencer…..hilarious
Anyway I digress, I’ve added work bae’s colleagues as a back up plan in case I need to add her on Facebook at a later date (can claim that she came up as someone you may know feature instead of admitting I actually went searching for her.
Although some girls may be flattered that you went looking for them.
