I ignore the negative comments. Try to find the positive and if there is a lot of negative talk in the break room I suddenly have to go to the bathroom or make a call from my car.
It keeps me sane and I from forming bad opinions about people I haven't worked with yet.

I just try to do my work. I have alot of negative people in my department too. And it is hard not to be negative with them around. But I try not to be.
I work in the Garden Center and for the most part my fellow associates are a great bunch of folks to work with.
However, there are one or two that can never seem to say anything positive and I feel like they are trying to convert me to their negative way of looking at things. There is also an associate from a different department who is continually trying to convince me that one day I will hate my job.
I always try to convey a positive attitude at work and I genuinely enjoy what I do and I want our department to be the best it can be. But, it can be difficult to maintain my positivity when confronted or partnered with a negative person.
What do you do to maintain your positive attitude?
