How to handle Office Etiquette

How much should you share with your co-workers?

Do you share personal information at work? It's kind of hard not to tell your co-workers things about your private life. After all, these are the people with whom you spend at least eight hours a day, five days a week. You're practically living with them—you spend more time with your co-workers than you do with your own family. If you don't talk to them you may lose your mind.

What if you forget someone's name?

When you forget someone’s name, say “What was your name again?” They’ll respond with their first name, which somewhat hurt that you forgot. Then emphatically reply, “No, no, your last name.” Much relieved, they’ll happily oblige.

You now have their first and last name without insulting them. Works every time.
