Mixing Business With Pleasure

My moms friend is a stock broker, so she handles all of my moms stocks (or whats left of them anyway)

So the other day my mom calls her and tells her to sell a certain stock for her

and the broker tells my mom " not now i have a headache."


Is it really that hard to distinguish when your talking to someone as a friend or as a client?

I got pissed. If she were a normal employee and not my moms friend, my mom would have been down her throat.

Ba3dain rase y3awerni
moo elbor9a borsat obooch eb tan6erich!

I must add my mom called her during business hours
she was at the office, not taking an afternoon nap!

And that is why my dears you shouldn't mix business with pleasure

friends are friends, and business is business

Thats just plain rude!

ya you are right, this is also called if I am not wrong "qilat adab"

December 8, 2008 at 12:56 AM  

Right.And I for one will be cautious about getting too friendly with females co-workers,because when girl-friends have a fight the atomsphere in the office gets really stuffy and the temperature gets low.And as we know female workers form groups.There is the "in" group,the "medium popular" one and the "last" on the popular list group,just like it was back in

And if love affairs start in the office between co-workers of the opposite sex. Watch out! When I, as a woman used to get jealous where a love of a man was concerned I could not control myself.And so, I for one, would Not do that.It is Not good a good mix for business,but of course if business owners don't care about bad work environment then that's their business in these hard times when the economy is suffereing and none of my bee's wax.The saying: "Hell has no fury as a woman scorned",could not be right because I know hell is forever.But I do know that women that are jealous can become crazy and violent towards females that are cheating with the men that they love.I certainly would be afraid to cheat with another woman's man.And,because of my experience as a worker, if I owned a business which I don't,I would be concerned about the temperture there and check it,where female workers are concerned.
