Now that I am a woman of a certain age peer pressure means little to me.
There is rarely any peer pressure to bend to…or not to bend to.
Especially at work where I am old woman of the crew.
I work in the office of a retail store.
I am the only person other than the owner and his wife who works in the office.
I do my thing they do theirs. So, no pressure happening there.
The sales staff does their thing and I do mine.
I do my be best to be a good support person for them.
I trust them to do what they need to do and they trust me to do my part.
They don’t pressure me I don’t pressure them.
Sometimes they think I should do something that I think they should do
and sometimes it is the other way around.
Somehow it all works out without pressure from me or them.
Although, there is the occasionally long sigh through gritted teeth.
Then there are the delivery guys.
No pressure from them.
They pretty much just ignore everyone.
So, basically to avoid peer pressure at work
- Like and trust each other in spite of your differences.
- Be the oldest one on staff–even better be older than the owner/boss.
- Or you can just ignore everyone.
