It was a Monday, and am not feeling any blues at all. A typical Monday whereby I got up and went to work happily.
Yes, a lot of enthusiasm.
All went well the first half of the day, till right after lunch.
I got a text message. Took out the phone, and to my surprise it was from that
I got lots of updates from him on his life, and of course am sorry for things which happened to him. I can only sympathize, and send him well wishes - nothing really much I can do.
I shared some updates of mine, and then out of sudden he came telling me that he recently got to know my colleague. Surprise !
Ok, so what's the big deal ?
I mean you and I aren't really close of a buddy, and I am not really close to that colleague of mine, so why are you telling me this ?
You asked about him, of course it's unprofessional for me to say things behind the colleague's back.
What more you want from me ?
The conversation got diverted for a moment, then you came back to the "colleague of mine" topic again and asked me to keep the "relationship" between you & I off from my colleague.
I was like, huh ? Why ? You have something to hide ? Or it's something we did in the past ?
Why must you dictate my freedom of speech and expression ? And it's like, I already know what kind of person that colleague of mine is and now it shows.
Oh well, birds of the same feather flock together.
