I have found that it can be real easy to get involved in petty behavior. Once you get comfortable you can start easing into drama, and this isn’t good. Working in a corporate environment is new to me, and as such it has been a new learning experience. At first I was the new guy, so most of my time was spent meeting all the people at the dealership and in the departments. But over time as I became a regular worker and some other people have been hired, fired, quit etc. I found myself more established and then more comfortable.
But that is when I started to get involved in petty things. You know, the he said, she said bullshit. And it is not worth it. Even when people screw you over, it is so much better to just look past it and continue doing your job. And that is what I came to realize. I was starting to get wrapped up in wasting my time with drama as well as becoming a jerk, when the only thing I should be wrapped up in is figuring out how to sell cars.
And that is the real moral of the story. Just focus on your work or the appropriate tasks at hand. Focusing on other people and drama is not only a waste of time, it is only going to make more problems.
Just work, and don’t be petty.
