“Pate, can you please add this to your blog? I’ve been dealing with this for a while and I don’t know what to do. I’d like to see if anyone would comment and give some advice. I want to be anonymous.”
I work in the retail business and have been for a few years. A friend of mine asked me to help get her a job where I work. Immediately I knew this was the best thing ever because I didn’t have any friends at work. I love my time with her and I don’t see her as much as I used to. She eventually was hired. We don’t work every shift together but we talked more because of catching up and talked about some things work related as she was being hired. Now, she’s been here for a while and she’s not the person I thought she was. I regret helping her get hired. Our relationship has become awkward, or at least awkward for me, because no one at work likes her and to be honest it’s because she’s not a good employee or a good coworker. I’ve started to not like who she is.
Im curious if there’s any way I can talk to her and say “you’re embarrassing me because I helped you get a job here and I don’t like who you are once I’ve been around you so much” without being mean. Or do I not say anything? I’m not her boss, but I helped her get a job and we were friends just a short while ago.
I will look and see in the comments to see if anyone answers on what they would do.
