Sooooo ... I doodle.
I started a new job recently ... and had 2 interesting conversations with "one who is in charge" ... and it seems one of my new co-workers is "perturbed" that I do not "chit chat".
Was I SERIOUSLY being chastised for not participating in idle chit chat aka GOSSIP.
After the second "encouraging talk" ... of course ... I'm infuriated - and any inkling of wanting to talk has flown out the window. I am polite ... if they need me I respond ... but otherwise - I stay to myself.
So ... as I'm doodling and talking on the phone ... I see the words forming on the page.
"This wouldn't even be an issue if I were a man."
When is the last time anyone had a hissy fit, because a MAN didn't stop by their cube and say hello? Why is it that women are so ... so... insecure? catty? I don't get it.
I just want to come to work ... do my job ... and LEAVE.
If I were a man ... it wouldn't be an issue.
That is my story - and I'm sticking to it.:)
Have a great Weekend!
