AN OFFICE has been compared to a family where everyone detests each other and fights all the time.
Staff at marketing firm Clarke & Wallace consider themselves not just workmates, but blood relations who resent each others’ successes and nurse grudges for years over tiny slights.
Account executive Eleanor Shaw said: “My colleague Martin is like a brother to me, in that he constantly takes my stuff without asking and bullies me when he thinks he can get away with it.
“Everyone thinks of Carolyn who runs HR as the office mum, because she drinks too much, doesn’t understand technology, and blatantly has her favourites.
“And Roy from accounts is always staring at my chest, like a creepy uncle.
“We all think we’re too good to be here but here we all are, tied together for life. It’s what family is all about.”
HR manager Carolyn Ryan said: “They’re all bastards but they’re my bastards and I love them.
“No I don’t. I hate them.”
