I work in an office full of women. There are 6 of us, and they have their little groups or 'clicks'. Problem is, I do not participate and it drives the 2 biggest gossips in the group crazy. I do my job, pretty well might I add, and I go home at the end of the day.
On the other hand, they stand at each others cubicles (outside my office door) and whisper for a good 45 minutes every morning, and various times throughout the day. I find it to be very inappropriate, and rude. I do not care who or what they are talking about, I think whispering is rude in general. It is more distracting than loud talking.
I found this great article about Office Etiquette, I wish I could pass it on!
On another note, the bathroom remodel project is going quite well. Pictures coming soon!
