When I look at my core friends, I can think of two friends that I never thought would be my friends. Lol.

Storytime: So, several of my friends and I used to work together and our friendship blossomed through the workplace.  However,  that isn’t the case for all my friendships. Lol. One friendship, in particular, started from work and I didn’t like this person.  Like they got on my last nerves every day. If anyone has worked with me, you know I take pride in everything I do and I like to shine at work and get awards. #showmetheraise

I was tasked with the assignment of training this person and they were not interested in learning the job. I would ask them, “Hey you want to try this by yourself to make sure you know what you are doing?”

They responded and said, “No.” I was livid. I didn’t want to be blamed for their failure since I was their trainer at work.  Of course, when this person finished training,  they were clueless regarding how they should work their desk.

As upset as they made me from not paying attention in my initial training, I re-trained them on the job and our friendship grew from there. To this day, we even have “inside” jokes about the training.  Lol.

Thankfully, this friend is one of my close friends now. They give awesome advice by lending a listening ear.
