Remember the movie Joe Dirt? Kid Rock was a great bad guy, and his most memorable line was “Nobody wants you around here, Dirt!” While that’s not something most people want to hear, at least he was being honest about his feelings. In an office setting, it’s sometimes a lot harder to tell what those around you are feeling. If you’re confused about a vibe in your office, here are a few signs that someone doesn’t want you around anymore…
They seem annoyed at your success: Did you just finish a big project or sale? Most people would be happy to hear that. If you have a coworker that seems annoyed by it, maybe it’s cause they’re hoping you’ll do something to get yourself fired.
They talk about you behind your back: It’s not a great feeling to find out that someone is talking about you behind your back. If this is going on at your office, it may be a sign that someone isn’t your biggest fan. It’s probably time to take a deep breath and nip it in the bud.
They don’t want to help: On a good team, everyone is willing to lend a hand when it’s needed. If you find that you have a coworker who seems to be “busy” anytime you need some help, it could be a sign that they have no desire to do you any favors. If you’re not sure, it might be a good time to have a talk and find out.
