Whether it's Gchat, email, or texting under your desk – you and your work BFF have to keep each other updated on pretty much all the details of your day.

2. You live in fear of sending an email meant for your work BFF to the wrong person.


You might have had actual nightmares about it.

3. But most of your conversation revolves around where you're gonna go for lunch.


And if one of you brought a packed lunch and the other didn't, then that is the ultimate betrayal.

4. You know their true opinion about everyone else you work with.


And there are LOTS of opinions.

5. You both know who the other one would marry if they had to choose one of your other colleagues.


Not including each other obviously.

6. And who you would choose to have one steamy night with.

8. You have secret nicknames for some of your other colleagues.


Some flattering... others not so much.

9. You have a look for when shit is going down in a meeting and you know you'll need to debrief later.


10. Sometimes you coordinate toilet breaks to debrief on the gossip.
