We also have a couple people who are widely known to be backstabbers and you never discuss anything with them beyond "can you waste some ____ with me?"

    Years ago I always attempted to make friends at work. Only one or two would actually make it to be my friend. The problem was they were not friends and only after the manager would talk to me I would find out they were talking and complaining behind my back. We even went out once a week and kept in touch on days off. I cant count the number of times in 12 yrs it happened. Now I look forward to working with some people but thats as far as it goes.
