Today I will be playing hooky from work.
I'm not going to get in trouble or anything.
I just can't handle people today.
I've told you in previous posts about my coworkers, my "friends." They are difficult to handle when I'm in a good mood. Today, I have no ability at all to deal with their weirdness.
Especially after yesterday, with the strangers and new workers asking me what I want to be when I grow up, as I was standing in front of them, knee deep in technical, and highly specialized equipment that most people don't know how to use. It made me doubt myself. So, with insecurities nagging at me, the thought of accidentally running into one of my "friends" sounds absolutely horrifying.
Yes, I know if I'm saying things about them like this, they probably aren't really my friends. Well, that's no fault of mine. I treated them with respect and kindness. In return, I got a bunch of their weird hang ups about weight (though they would say "fitness). I got to sit and listen to their messed up relationship situations. I got to relive all the high school drama I could possibly handle. Now, being a grown up, I have decided that I'm done with it.
So, like a mature and responsible grown up...I'm going to play hooky.
