I am not the most social person in the world. I like people, I just don’t always like to talk to them. Or have them talk to me. Or be around me. Or be around them.
Unfortunately, the nature of my job means that there are anywhere from 6-10 people within 15 feet of me all day long (and not in cubicles). Some days I attempt to stay in my corner and not speak to anyone. On these days, when I do have to speak, it’s usually the wrong thing.
I’m going to be 35 years old next month, you would think I would have learned to hold my tongue by now. But, nope. All I can hope is that these people who spend 40 hours a week less than 15 feet from me all day long, overlook me.
