Dear Cubby and Cindy,
I share an office with a co-worker who spends all day trying to drag me into personal conversations about her life. And if that isn’t bad enough, every time our boss comes by, it looks like we’re just goofing off when what is really happening is I’m just trying to be polite until she shuts up and gets back to work! I’m not sure how to deal with this. Do I talk to her directly? Do I tell my boss? Do I just try to ignore her? I don’t want to lose my job over this … help!
