Sample Answer of Talk About a Situation when You Had to Be Friendly with Someone You Did Not Like
To be perfectly honest, there are a number of situations when I had to be friendly with people I did not like. I would take this opportunity to talk about my colleague whom I did not like, but I had to be friendly with her. It was a time when I was teaching in Akal Academy to school children, and suddenly I had to go to attend one workshop related to the conduction of exams. My colleague Renu was also going to attend the same workshop. But I did not want to go with her because I did not like her as she was a very mean person and always interfered in others’ matters. Our names were given by our boss, so we had to attend this webinar. I did not have any excuse to refuse to go with her. Finally, I went with her to attend this workshop, and there the resource person made our groups, and in each group, there were two people. Renu was my partner, and we were assigned an assignment which we needed to perform on the next day in the same workshop. To prepare for that assignment, I had to stay friends with her so that I could perform that task perfectly. It was the time when I had to stay friendly with the person I didn’t like.
