Work  Relationships

Usually Human relationships are build on comforts rather than rights or wrongs: 
You both quickly reach some conclusion which is agreeable by both party and more often you do so, more mature the relationships could be.


Is there any study or survey or ideas about how office relationships are build up.

How about relationships with your programs/software?

Idea is not obsession. Idea is to live in comfort zone.

[How about relationships with your programs/software?]

My IDE once complained that I wasn't trying hard enough to satisfy it's emotional needs. So I bashed it with a crowbar, real good.

It's time of month for my PC at work, so I have to be extra nice to it.

I just stopped editing text in my IDE (Codewarrior hosted on Mac), and use my favorite text editor externally.  So, work relationship?  I left it and found something I liked better, talking to it only when absolutely necessary.

How about the movie "Office Space"? It's about as accurate a portrayal of how management thinks of employees as anything I've seen.
