  • If you think someone at work is nice, be friends. Just because everyone else is being a jerk to her doesn't mean that you have to. Good for you!
  • In high school, no, I would have never done it because I would have looked "uncool" but now, I know that isnt important, and if I want to make friends with her because I think she is nice and will make a good friend, I will do it. It doesnt matter in the end if she is uncool, it just matters that we have a great friendship.
  • I have always been the type of person to be friends with the outcast. I think that it is mean that people are so mean. I have a ton of friends and to get some one to smile is my goal in life.
  • I have done it before, and I would do it again if I had to. If she's a nice girl, why the fork should I care what other people say? It's their problem not mine.
  • You say at work? what kind of a company do you work for that bullies people and calls them names?
  • absolutely... i would pass up a dozen friends who bully and degrade others..for one person who's nice and could potentially become a life long friend.
  • Of course I would, in fact I'd be ashamed NOT to (thinking her a good person). You'd be surprised at how often it's the GOOD in these people that the majority find so repugnant that they cant resist attacking/calling names. The fact you even asked this question shows you know its wrong, deep down. Please don't be weak & give into their ways (like they've ALREADY done). Anyone can be an a55hole. It requires no special skill, only the will to do so. Who the heck wants arrogant name-callers for friends anyway? Certainly NOT ME. Go out there & make a REAL friend!
  • hell yeah, although I do not have that problem at work, everyone is friends basically, we are more worried about the care given to the people than petty bullshit like name calling.
  • Yes, I would make friends with her if I thought she was nice. I don't let other people pick my nose or my friends.
  • One of my mottos is:F**K EM!! A friend to her I will be.
  • Sure especially because of that. Show all that it does not matter what others think. You may be making her day just by being a friend. I am sure you will feel good about yourself just for not judging her and being her friend. Good luck.
  • Yes, without a doubt, just think of the alternatve: You pass on a friendship because of "adults" who still go around name-calling. That would be a shame.
  • yes defo... the rest are not worth it!!!
  • If I liked her yes; if not no. My decision wouldnt be based on anybody else's OPINION.
  • Don't let other people dictate how you feel about someone. And bullies at work? They need to get the sack and go back to school. Then they can get bullied for being too old for their class :-P
  • Absolutley. I want to be friends with everyone especially someone who really needs the friendship. It could be the most rewarding friendship you have. It sounds like the others a work haven't quite grown up yet, show them how it's done. :)
  • yeah of course i would, everyone needs a friend! if people are going to make fun of you for being nice screw em. you shoulnt really care
  • If it increases my chances of getting lucky with her....Hell yeah!
  • I do, and don't care... as mater of fact I do have a great friend that the others reject and call names, and so far no one confronted me about it.
  • Yes.I don't let others influence who I'm friends with.
  • Yes, of course. I dont need anyone else to tell me how to think.
  • If she nice...To hell with them
  • Well scratch all that name-calling, etc. If I liked her yes, if not No.
  • what differnece does it make what others think? if you think she is nice, then you should be friends. why do they call her names? Are they possibly jealous of something she has or can do. did someone elses boyfriend flirt with her?
  • I would, & then I'd dare any of them to say anything.
  • First of all, why are grown people making fun of a girl who clearly is a bit differnt? I know it sounds hard, but the right thing to do is to stand up to your co-workers, and then talk to your head of human reasouces, and tell him/her what is going on.
  • When I was in grade 1 I was a popular girl, then in grade 2 this new boy started he was really weird and smelled bad and everyone made fun of him, i felt bad and started to play with him at recess, at that instant my popularity depleted until I changed schools, 5 years later. but i would not change that experience for the world, he was the nicest boy i ever met, and it made me feel good about myself that i made friends with him out of all the people i went to school with he is the only one i remeber, and the girl who bullied me, everyone else is just a blur, so make friends with her and who cares what other people think
  • Make up your own mind. I would follow my heart and my head and if this person seemed like someone I wanted to get to know I would.. what other people think is of no consequence. That's on them.
  • It's been quite common for me to make friends with someone nobody else likes.
  • Yes. I prefer the odd man out. Always have.
  • If you really care about what others going to say then you shouldn't, believe me/-
  • Of course. If she's a nice person, I see no reason not to be friends with her. Who cares what the rest of them say? They're obviously too blind and ignorant to see past whatever made them dislike her in the first place.
  • Yes without even thinking twice
  • Absolutely. Don't follow the sheep. >baahhhh<
  • I would if I LIKED her
  • I work with some women who talk about everyone, rip them apart, what they wear, their hair, you name it. I work closely with them so really try to get along with them, but on the other hand, I do have friends they talk about and I don't care what they think, I don't need anyone's approval to be someone's friend if I like them... oh, yes.. always keep in mind they are probably talking about you too, the minute you turn your back.
  • YES I WOULD !! you should never care what people think or say. no ones shit smells like roses.
