Co-workers realising their friendship was mainly based on proximity

TWO colleagues have realised their ‘friendship’ was entirely based on sitting close together at work.

After being told to work from home, Tom Booker and Wayne Hayes now realise the gap of three feet between their office chairs was the only thing holding their flimsy relationship together.

Hayes said: “I was sure we were mates who did banter, but I haven’t missed Tom at all. It’s weird. When we were in the office he seemed essential but now I never think about him.

“We talked about meeting up for virtual Friday beers but I think I’ll just hang out with my family instead. I’m not actually sure I have his number.”

Booker said: “I used to joke about how Wayne was my ‘work wife’ but I’ve since realised that I far prefer my actual wife. 

“All we really have in common is dissatisfaction with our job and contempt for our co-workers. Without that there’s nothing. I don’t even think he likes football.”
