I'm not exactly sure of the course of our discussion for the few seconds preceeding the moment of of truth, but right before leaving work on Friday a co-worker and I had a nice, short and revealing conversation. Well she is more than a co-worker, she is what I classify as a friend. At work, there are only 3 people who fall into the "friend" category; Patrick, Saliane, and Cindy.
With Saliane, I believe she asked why I don't lump her in with the other co-workers who don't acknowledge me outside the office. The difference is right there. Saliane and Cindy are a lot like myself in that get enjoyment out of doing nice things for others
