Chances are you may spend more time with your co-workers than your loved ones!
Here are 10 things you should never say at work. This list comes to us from USNews.
1.) "Are you pregnant?"
If a co-worker wants you to know they are expecting, they will tell you.
It's safe to assume it is none of your business. And asking may just offend the person.
2.) "You owe money for the boss' gift"
Your co-worker may not budget for office gifts and may resent being asked to fork over the dough.
Etiquette rules say that office gifts should flow downward, and not upward.
3.) "You're so skinny! Why aren't you eating?"
Commenting on a co-worker's body is off limits.
Your co-workers are there to work, not to have their eating choices or their bodies scrutinized and judged.
4.) "That's not my job."
Most people end up pitching in to help with things that may not be in their job description.
Refusing to help could earn you a reputation of being lazy.
5.) "The new manager is a real jerk."
Making fun of the boss is not a good career move.
Even if others join in, it could get back to your manager.
6.) "I heard Kim is dating Ryan."
Spreading office gossip will only lead your co-workers to distrust you.
The details of other people's lives are not yours to share in the office.
7.) "You're how old?"
If you are surprised by someone's age -- keep it to yourself.
Try not to baby younger co-workers or make older ones feel like they are steps away from retirement.
8.) "Don't ask me. They don't tell me anything."
You could undermine your credibility by complaining about how disempowered you are.
If you don't have the information you need to do your job, you should go ask for it
9.) "Why are you so dressed up today? Got a job interview?"
The outcome could put your co-worker in an awkward position.
If she does have an interview, you're forcing her to either confide in you -- or lie.
10.) "I'm so hungover."
It may seem like no big deal to tell your co-workers about your partying.
But getting the reputation of a lush could hurt your career.
