I like to keep my social life and work life separate, but my coworkers are overwhelming me with their friendship. How can I politely convince them to leave me alone?
When your coworkers describe themselves as a close knit dysfunctional family, are you obligated to participate?

Also: Jenn discovers The OmegaBunny, and Trin has an adventure in sunless tanning.
