Coworker is on the way over

She drives me nuts. She is needy. She obsesses about work things. Still she was very good to me during my divorce and has no family so I feel like I owe it to her to return the favor and be a good friend to her. Not that I'm not a good friend to people but, like I said, she makes me crazy sometimes and I honestly don't need any more craziness in my life. I've got that one covered. Sometimes she comes in. Sometimes we sit out on the landing while Charlie the Cat rolls around on the concrete scratching his back. We'll see how long she stays. It is looking like the promised thunderstorms are on the way so she won't stay long if it starts storming and we are outside.

Do you make sure that you do some of the talking. I've noticed that with many people it's: they talk, complain and/or give not-wanted advice. I've started talking more, just to make things more balanced.

@thelme55 My profession demands that I be a good listener. But I don't like being used as a verbal scratching block (kitty reference).
