coworkers hounding you before you've even settled in

Health insurance rip off lying FDA big bankers buying
Fake computer crashes dining
Cloning while they're multiplying
Fashion shoots with Beck and Hanson
Courtney Love, and Marilyn Manson
You're all fakes
Run to your mansions
Come around
We'll kick your ass in

I always counter this shit with aggressive socializing

-walk in, stand at desk and start to unpack

Coworker Bob (immediately, with no greeting): the latest build has a few critical errors, so we need to-

Me (smiling): Hey, Bob! How’s it goin’? Do anything fun last night? I checked out this funk show at the Odyssey Lounge. Ever been there?

Just relentlessly assault them back

Some people are just too awkward for pleasantries. It's me when i volunteer (it's a bit of a office job kinda). I walk right up to someone and ask whatever i need to ask without saying hi. I'm aware of it at least. I just want to get this interaction done as quickly as possible.


I may be psychotic for sure though.


Also note i've been doing this every week for 2 hours for a year and a half and i've yet to make a friend there.

very similar, the version of this that I’m always on the receiving end of is front-loaded with the small talk foreplay before launching into the shit they’re nagging me about, so the trick is to hyperengage with their HEY, how’s it GOING, how was your WEEKEND schtick like twice as hard and fast, give it right back to them full blast as you then proceed to walk away before they reach the other part

I realized I mastered it when they would legit forget what they came to ask me in the first place. but we were experts on what was new and exciting in our respective weekends :D

one thing I appreciate about my job is that we get here at 8:30 but the actual work day doesn't start until 9 so we get a half hour to just ease into things.

we have a little meeting at 8:40 that's mostly just bullshitting about nothing and no one starts doing any work until after. it's great

my coworkers are nice but i just really don't want to talk. i feel like a brat sometimes but i didn't choose to be here and i don't come here to socialize. i try to be pleasant but i almost never initiate conversations, and i use my chronic illness as an excuse sometimes to spare their feelings. "hey i'm not feeling very well this morning, let's catch up after lunch"

yep

we're the main crisis response center for the homeless crisis in the county and our doors open at 9 but because the job is so stressful and busy we get a paid half hour mostly to just bullshit and relax a bit before diving in.
