Every woman knows there's one thing in particular that helps you get through the workday. No, not the Keurig machine. The other thing. No, not the Chipotle that's in the building next door. The other, other thing. Yes, it's your work wife. *sigh*. There are secrets you can only share with your work wife and nobody else, because she just gets you. She doesn't judge you when you take naps in your car during breaks or eat someone else's lunch and then blame it on your coworker as payback for that time he farted in your cubicle and then denied it. Your work wife is there beside you through thick and thin, good and bad, till death or unemployment do you part; and you can't imagine your job without her. Who else would you secretly text about how much your clients suck or how much it bothers you that your manager still thinks "irregardless" is a real word?
To all the work wives of the world, we thank you — you make the boring 9-to-5 a bit more bearable. And no matter who comes and goes in our lives, you're the only ones we feel comfortable enough around to share some of our deepest, darkest secrets.
