Randumb Conversation: The person at work who nobody likes
Since I work full time, getting up early doesn’t make a difference. It’s going to class that exhausts me. For one week, my weekly schedule is altered, and falling back into that routine takes some time.
Tuesday night, when I was walking to class, I overheard two guys talking about their break. This leads me to this week’s ranDUMB conversation.
James: Hey, bro! Did you have a good break?
Henry: Naw. My mom made me go to a wedding in North Carolina.
James: Damn, dude, that sucks!
Henry: I know. Oh well. Wutabout you?
James: I took a few days off work. When I got back, I had a strange conversation with a co-worker.
Henry: How so?
Now this is all hearsay, but I like what this co-worker had to say.
James: She told me, “It was quieter when you weren’t here.”
Me: “That’s it? No hello? No welcome back? No, ‘How was the
Her response: “I’m not going to kiss your ass because you were gone
for a few days.”
Henry: Damn, dude, that’s harsh!
James: Whatever. I was pissed.
I have to honestly say that I like this co-worker’s attitude. She is to the point and didn’t sugar-coat the situation—I guess I liked it so much because it reminded me of something that I would have said.
I normally would give some sort of advice here, but I think the co-worker summed it up. There is always one person you work with that nobody likes. If you don’t know who it is, it’s probably you.
