14 Signs Your Co-Workers Are Basically Your Real Family

A family that slaves together stays together.

Let's all take a moment to appreciate our work family — that gang we spend 40–60 hours a week with.

1. Your real family will tell you what you should do with your life, but your work fam supports what you want to do.

2. Unlike your real family, your work fam laughs at your jokes. Even the dumb ones.

3. Your fights may be intense, but they never last long.

4. When you're frustrated with a customer, your work fam will talk more trash than you ever could.

5. They're always there for you when you need to talk, especially about "non-work" issues.

6. They're good people, even though they don't think they are.

7. They're sometimes ridiculous...

8. ...and always HI-LAR-I-OUS.

9. Your work family will be honest with you, even if it hurts.

10. They're always your biggest cheerleaders, even about dumb little unimportant things.

11. They can say everything without saying anything at all.

12. They're not afraid to be blunt when giving advice.

13. They always come up with the most brilliant ideas...

14. ...and most importantly: They'll always be there for you no matter what, because that's what families are for.

Be sure to tell your work family how much you appreciate them, and tag along with the ultimate work fam in Vanderpump Rules on Bravo!
