There are work places where you feel like in a complicated relationship. You would like to quite but you insist on waiting for the other one to make the first move, to say: you know what, everything was nice but you should move on. And so, you, trying to mask that joy which the other one tries not to notice reply that you`re sorry and that's it. I don`t know if you`re in this situation, maybe yes, maybe no.
