The lines have become blurred.

I’m not going to say that coworkers and friends are mutually exclusive.  I have some really close friends that were once my coworkers.  It is definitely possible for a coworker to be a friend… but it is NOT REQUIRED.

See, your friends hang out with you because you enjoy each others’ company, have things in common, a similar sense of humor, etc.  No one is paying your friends to hang out with you.  If they were being paid to be around you, then they wouldn’t be your friends.

Your coworkers are paid to spend time with you. Well, not directly.  They are there with you because you’re all being paid to work.  The point is that they are not there voluntarily.

Where am I going with all this?  The point that I want to make is that you are a grown ass adult.  Act like it.  If your coworkers are also your friends, that’s great, but don’t get your feelings all wrapped up in expecting them to treat you like your friends do if they are not your friends.
