We almost had a brawl in the office the other day. Nothing major. No outbursts over Donald Trump or Bernie Sanders. No hysteria over the zombie apocalypse. We try to steer clear of the really controversial issues because we all have to get along, and politics and zombies are not good for productivity or your mental and physical well-being.
After years of slogging to work in the salt mines, I realize that people can be pretty vocal about their views, which can lead to serious arguments and even fisticuffs.
So it’s best to avoid politics, religion and sex and choose safer topics like, say, celebrity divorces, because they bring out our compassionate side. For example, wasn’t that terrible what Ben Affleck did to Jennifer Garner or what Miranda Lambert did to Blake Shelton — or was it the other way around? And I don’t even want to think about Kylie and Tyga.
