Have a work mate who seems pleasant enough.  Virtually every conversation she enters into she relates back to husband and kids.  When a kid farts it also goes onto social media.  Other women in this position aren't carrying on half as much.  Is it possible to be so blissfully happy ? Cause at time it seems she is beating everyone over the head with it, and might be over compensating for something else.

Everyone is different. I know a lady at work who has a young child that you wouldn't even knew existed. Her life focus is work. Others is their family. 

Some work to live, others Iive to work. Some people are private, others are an open book.. 

TBH I can't stand work colleagues who can only talk about work, every lunch break, dinner, conference is work related talk... FFS do you even have a life?

Im sure we are all a bit the same, at my work we are all "long termers"  we have gone from gushing about our newborns to now all complaining about our teenagers.  :lol:

Sounds like conversations with a lot of triathletes. 

Old joke - how will you know someone is a triathlete? They will tell you!  :trumpet:

People like to talk about what is important to them. Obviously family is most important for your work colleague.

Apparently there was a marital indiscretion at some point.  The running mums are quite competitive and look to be constantly trying to one up each other, with experiences etc

I have been doing Tri's for over 30 years. Most people (work and friends) I know have no idea i do them. I only talk about Tri's with people who I do tri's with.

My take is...... what is important, exciting and fun to me is not the necessarily important, exciting and fun to others.

"Modern Mothers".... 

 

A thread started by a man.... 

 

 

🤷🏻‍♂️✌️👍

Well, the title doesn't really relate to the topic - the topic is about one particular mother that he works with...  But if he was looking for clickbait, "Modern Mothers" works a lot better than "There is this one woman that I work with" 😜

Yeah. 

I'm not throwing shade at the contribution. Just the title 🙄🙄

When "new" folk browse the website, that's not what you want to see IMO. Not nowadays anyway 👍✌️

If new folk are so offended as such a thread title then perhaps the snowflakes would feel more welcome if it was changed to a non gender binary, all inclusive (edit) pro noun? Very presumptuous to assume only females can be mothers.
