Do you have a work spouse?
Work spouses are members of the opposite sex with whom you have formed an inseparable bond at work, according to Deanna Hartley, CareerBuilder.
They deserve a Valentine because:
--They will always save you a seat next to them at a meeting. You two are probably thinking the same thing as the meeting progresses.
--You like the same TV shows, so can always converse.
--You never had to eat alone at the desk--you have a companion.
--You trust their opinion--and them.
--You have a private language and nicknames for coworkers.
--It is the WORST when this person is out or on vacay.
--You can travel with someone who will take the middle seat or not bitch when you do.
--If you have to stay late, your work spouse may make the sacrifice.
--You can throw shade on the spouse's enemies--and the spouse will return the favor.
--If you have a bad day--the work spouse will know it before you say it and make you feel better. Your real spouse will want to talk about his or her bad day.
I had a work spouse once. Now--only the kitty cat.
