I mean it’s called quitting time for a reason. But some of my co-workers have been making comments about how I leave right on the minute, and I think I just got dissed by one for doing so. I generally show up for work on time, and if I am late, it’s not more than a minute or two. If there’s a crisis, I will stay late and help out, but usually when it’s time to leave…I leave. Promptly.
The team I work with is generally considered a pretty tight, so I’m leery of making waves, generally pissing people off and causing a “management issue.” At the same time I don’t want to be taken advantage of or steamrolled.
It seems silly to me that since I’ve been talking to these people all day that staying an extra five or ten minutes shooting the breeze will make a difference. But at work some seem to take offense to this habit of mine. Any thoughts or advice?
