I like to think of myself as a positive person...I'm known for always looking for the silver lining, of the rainbow in a storm.
Lately, I've noticed that there is quite a bit of negativity in my office. (There are only 3 of us)
One of the gentlemen I work with, never has anything positive to say. He constantly sighs, and curses, and complains. Every time the phone rings, he curses and rants about people being needy, and they need to get their stuff together.
I have been thinking of a way to tactfully tell him that his negativity is a buzz kill, but don't want to upset him, as this is his nature.
One of these days I may just snap and tell him to shut it down, and keep his negativity to himself. He is welcome to his black cloud of negativity, but I don't want to be under it. Like my mom told me, "If you don't have anything nice to day, don't say anything at all."
