It might put your career at risk if your boss or other curious ears within range overhear your story of how you just took a two-hour nap in the toilet cubicle. Also, refrain from commenting on the dietary habits of other colleagues. It’s none of your business whether the boss’s secretary nibbles dehydrated kale. Keep your opinions of others’ and their consumption habits to yourself.
