Umm...Hello everyone. This is my first time submitting to RHU...so I guess you can call me Shrinking Violet. Sometimes I can get very shy and quiet, so it is a good thing that my social skills have improved during the 6 months I have been working at a grocery store as a bagger or 'courtesy clerk' if you want to be all fancy pantsy about it.
It's a pretty nice place if I do say so myself; we have an AMAZING bakery with desserts that are usually worth the higher price and the deli food is also top notch in my opinion. I digress though, so let's get to why I'm writing in.
I am suffering a little bit of a coworker drama situation at work, and what makes it worse is that one of the coworkers involved is my younger brother. Let's call him Big Friendly Giant or BFG for short, since he is a huge softy despite being taller than me.
Now for some reason, BFG has some sort of issue with our coworker Van Hellsing (so named because he once showed me a wooden stake and told me it was to keep him safe from vampires). Before I started working there the two of them had been friends...but then Van Hellsing started dating another one of our other coworkers, (a girl named Fishy who also happens to be one of BFG's best friends and a possible crush of his) and I guess everything went to hell from there.
Every encounter between them seems to be hostile in some sort of way, even to the point where they would involve managers and even me... It has gotten to the point that I had to beg Van Hellsing to be nice to my brother despite how the latter treats him, because I want to avoid a hostile work environment.
So my question is, how the hell do I handle this?!?
