Oh yes….that one co-worker that gets under your skin. I have one. I’m sure you do as well. I am not a mean person, (honest!) but this person talks a lot….about NOTHING. From the moment they come in till they leave at the end of the day. Maybe it is just where I am getting these doses of nonsense chatter. Maybe it would be different if I wasn’t at work? I don’t know.
But for those that don’t know me well, I was born under the sun sign of Capricorn. Capricorns are very serious about their work. I mean SERIOUS. Not much time for small talk or nonsense chatter. I want to do my work. I mean don’t get me wrong, I let loose and talk every now and again. (LOL) But for the most part I could do my job with little interaction from any other humans (except the people talking to me on the other end of my phone). I guess that is why Capricorns might come off as “aloof” or “snobby”. I’m not really either of those things, I’m just working.
So now that you know this about me, the endless “Are we having fun yet?” or “I’m having way too much fun, someone please make it stop!” can really just drive me to start drinking at work (I would not do that by the way). Then there are times where they must share about what every customer said to them. Why? I have heard the same scenarios about 50 times over the course of my career here. LOL
Anyway, you get the picture. We all have annoying people we must work with. Perhaps my quiet manner or aloofness gets on other peoples nerves. Who knows!
Now shut it, I’m trying to work. J
