What are your co workers like outside of the office? I've had a bit of both worlds. Some that are quiet don't drink or are anti social. Others who like to party and just cool to be around.

I hardly go to happy hours. Have no desire to spend so much time with co workers during the day and then go out drinking with them. Feeling the need to be friends outside of work to be good co-worker is bs!

A happy hour is just one example of an activity you can do with your coworkers... Not that it matters to you BDO 1 since you don't care to build the relationships inside and out of work any ways.

If your so busy trying to look cool by never making friends at work and always having outside friends you will end up with no friends.

I think when you're too "BFF" with your coworkers, you're bound to get into an argument of some sort outside of work, which may likely effect your work environment. Then you're gonna hate going to work because of the people you work with. You'll either get annoyed of them or vice versa, or something may happen that you guys can't be friends and that'll effect the coworker relationship. So just be careful how buddy buddy you are with your coworkers. It's cool to hangout with them outside of work sometimes but doesn't need to be all the time, and you can still make the best of it at work by making jokes and getting lunch. I've seen a lot of coworkers end up hating each other just because *this person got drunk and did *this to *this and said *this to my *that and bla bla bla.

We do a lot of activities with out coworkers besides happy hours. We started this impromptu challenges activity where quite a few people participate ( team building, energizing, prices for winners). Other stuff we do include kayaking, Cubs games, scavenger hunt, boat cruise etc

A good number of my coworkers like to go out and drink a lot. I don't even know the names of the anti-social ones who never come to happy hours.

My co workers are one of my best friends. We hang out on weekend and weekday! It's great when the relationship is healthy. They make my work days more enjoyable

It definitely does and to see your coworkers/friends who work on other engagements. By no means though does it mean you have to be the social one going to happy hours. I feel like I have a great relationship with all my coworkers on my team because of it

Lol no one said not to save any friends at work.
