    Office romances

    Don't...please, for the sake of all in the office, just please don't. They almost never work out and it many times makes things difficult in the office for everyone.

    Don't urinate off the company dock.

    Don't fish where you eat.

    Don't dip your pen in the company inkwell.

    Old sayings are old sayings for a reason.

    Did all of those, been happily married 27 years.

    Yes I could have been fired, but she actually took another job just a few weeks into our starting to date.

    As a rule it's a bad idea, but it worked out very well for me!

    Good for y'all!! There are always exceptions, and I'm glad in your case it worked out.

    I'll never understand how people in relationships can work together. How am I supposed to have conversations with my work husband while my real husband is hanging around?!?

    Short meetings in the closet often lead to problems in the long term.

    Relationships are never a good idea in the workplace.


    But the one night stand after the Christmas party is another story.....

    Butcher shops and bakeries should be in 2 different locations.

    This show from the 70's shows a few of the dangers...



    No surprise that this show didn't last long...couldn't get any one dumb enough to go on it.

    Can you still call it a romance if you're just sneaking off to the supply closet for a couple minutes?
