Have you had co-workers, who you thought were friends but in reality it was only friends of convienence? They are all friendly when they need something of you. Or when passing you in the hallway. But if you don’t seek them out they ignore you.
Hey, lets go to lunch. Nope.
Lets go on a coffee run. Nope.
One particular “friend” use to be friendly enough. We would talk, go to lunch, go on coffee runs. Heck even just walk to the local store a couple of buildings down. Now, nothing unless I seek them out. But oh ya, they have time to do things with others.
To add to this so called ‘friend’. I went to an event over the weekend. They were there too. and acting so odd. For a while it was like they didn’t know me. Walked up to them, said hi and was pretty much ignored. I seriously thought about leaving. But I really wanted to be there. I want to be part of this community. So fuck them.
And you know what… fuck them.
Fuck all my so called friends here. You are nothing. And I don’t need you.
I love the actual work I do and my boss is great. But from now on all you are seeing is the work me. Head down. Don’t talk to me about anything unless it is work related because I won’t answer you. Hell, I might even be so ballsy and ask you if this is work related or not. And if it’s not, I may just walk away from you.
I don’t need you.
