My God, if all of you Soc/sx/sps could sit with me and mock the people I work with.
I am tired of sitting here alone, but out of an entire department of 21 people, I am isolated. 95% of the interactions are based on economic status -- literally, most of the people who make over $100,000 will look right through me (or run right over me) and then so enthusiastically greet and chat with another six-figure earner. I just want to stop them and ask, excuse me, but didn't anyone ever teach you something called GOOD MANNERS? Then we have the wannabe crew -- I literally had this young woman stand in front of my office door yesterday and call out to people (not me), "are you coming after work? how about her, is she? Oh I just invited the intern!" then she walked away. I'd like to do more than just close my door -- I want her to know that she is an ignorant bitch.
I'm f-----g tired of leaving my family every morning and coming here for the paycheck but then being isolated socially. I have initiated get-togethers -- a lunch on St Patrick's Day -- I've also gone out when invited. This is a Social variant thing as much as a Four thing. It kicks up high school memories where I was rudely ostracized and I have had fantasies of confronting all of those girls who treated me so badly -- well, now I CAN confront people who treat me badly here and get it out of my system . . . hey, I'll let you know what happens.
