While you can choose your friends, you can't choose two things in life - your family and your colleagues. Speaking of the latter, having a work BFF can make even the most mundane office tasks more exciting. They're energy, they're enthusiasm and most importantly, they are your support system at work. Sometimes, it's only because of them that you can get through the day without having a nervous breakdown!
