resolving conflict at work
conflict amongst colleagues is common everywhere but when you are caught in the crossfire between two co-workers, you wish that the ground will open and swallow you.

that's what happened to me today. i didn't know what happened to two co-workers and suddenly they were shouting at each other.

after an hour had assed, the co-workers were still in a shouting match in the lunch room. i was hungry and i had to go to the lunch room as my lunch is in the refrigerator. i knocked on the door but they kept shouting at each other.

i was hungry and had to open the door. they were still shouting at each other. it was an upleasant sight for all of us. one of the co-workers left the lunch room and the other remained. she was trying to compose herself and i behaved like nothing had happened.

i am not sure whether the shouting match has helped to resolve the conflict but i hope they will be more tolerant of each other.
