My rant for today is co-workers. For the most part I come into work, do my job, work out on lunch breaks, visit my favorite blog,Crunk and Disorderly, and then go home. I have no interest in office politics. If it were not bad social etiquette, I'd keep my office door shut. I don't want to hear the latest office gossip of who's leaving the company, who's getting married or divorced, who's sleeping together, who might be fired and other assorted gossip. I don't want to see 50,000 new pictures of your children, grandchildren and pets. No, you cannot borrow my CD's and I don't want to hear your new Best of Lawrence Welk CD's either. I don't care to know what you are having for lunch and no, I don't want to discuss what I'm eating for lunch. I don't want to hear your opinions of the last episode of Project Runway. I don't want to try your new recipe, how do I know if you wash your hands or let your cat lick out of the mixing bowl? No, I don't want to hook up with you and the crew after work, I spend 8+ hours a day with y'all.....why prolong my torture? And last but not least, I don't want you forwarding your tired ass jokes, internet hoaxes, good luck chain letters etc.. to my inbox!!!!
Believe it or not, I actually ENJOY the majority of the people I work with...but from a distance. I just like to keep my work and private life separate. If a person approaches me on the job about non work-related issues, for the most part, I really don't want to hear it!! I'm never mean or cruel to anyone but it is hard to keep a false smile in order not to hurt anyone's feelings. As they are blabbing away about their personal stories, my mind is screaming "JUST GO AWAY DAMN"! Outside of work I'm open and enjoy meeting new people, but work is a separate issue...the two never shall meet.
