I wouldn’t be surprised if in the U.S. there are plenty of workplaces with employees in heated debates over the presidential election. Just like here you may have a co-worker constantly going off on Kathleen Wynne or an anti Harper or Trudeau rant prior to the election last year. In this top 10 list of Things You Shouldn’t Share On The Job courtesy of Huffington Post politics is #1.
Your political views
What you think of them (if it isn’t positive)
Sometimes you have to stick to the “if you haven’t got anything nice to say don’t say it”.
That you hate your job/boss/office/coworker
The thinking is even if someone appears to share your feelings they may still use the info to stab you in the back. Keep it to yourself.
The reason you can’t get the thing done that needs to be done
Because nobody wants to hear your excuses.
The condition of your digestive tract/rash/foot fungus.
I get it sometimes when you take a sick day you feel the need to make your co-workers understand you really were sick by sharing all the gory details. Just don’t.
How much you make
Why you need a raise
You should get a raise because you deserve it not just because your in overdraft etc.
TMI. You know what this is. Keep it private.
That you’re job hunting
