  1. I’m Beginning to Feel Like Milton from Office Space

    July 4, 2013 by Lady Unemployed

    Just give me a red stapler and move my desk to the basement.

    I’m being ignored at work.. Really, really ignored. They moved my desk and I’m sitting near two managers and near two people who aren’t in my department. ¬†As for the rest of the people in my department, they are on the other side of the room. What is so tormenting is that there are conversations going on around me, but I’m not included. I know, I know, I could make an effort to talk to my coworkers and I try, but there is only so many times where I start feeling very stupid for trying to connect with them.

    I have never experienced this type of isolation at work before. In honor of this new founded isolation, I kept track of the sentences I spoke at work yesterday.

    Ladies and gentleman, this is what I spoke out loud at work on July 3rd:

    “Hi.”

    “Oh, I’ll switch places with you.”

    “Hello!”

    “Do we still have that meeting today?”

    “Yup, just dealing with paperwork over here.”

    Fascinating, isn’t it?
