They have your back when things go belly up, they’re the ones you actually want to speak to on Monday morning about your weekend, and you’d happily get drunk with them outside of work events.

That’s right, I’m talking about Office BFFs – the awesome souls that make work MUCH less painful, always there for you no matter what the drama you’re facing at work.

If you’re a little unsure if you have a BFF in the office, read on.

Here are seven signs that confirm that you’re currently in the throes of an office BFF relationship.
