Do not waste your time with the office storyteller. They only want to take up your time with information that ultimately has no bearing on what you do. The information they impart on you has come to them through careful observation of others. While you are actually being productive, they spend their time watching others for their faults. Allowing, this person to take up your time places you right alongside of them. Falling behind in your work, making mistakes due to lack of focus, and worst of all becoming just like them.

Remember the old adage… Misery Likes Company!

Give more service than is required and it will be returned to you tenfold!
