for those of us who work for a living, 1/3 of your life is spent at your job. people tend to develop friendships with the people they work with.
me personally, I don’t talk to anyone at work. I go in, do my job, and go home. I think this has angered some people at work and has caused them to resent me. this doesn’t bother me as it’s their problem and not mine, but it is kind of funny that people who I say and do nothing to somehow have a problem with me. you think that wouldn’t happen when you’re doing your job and minding your own business.
how are others here handling their social environment at work? Or, are lucky enough to have a job where you don’t have to deal with people much?
One of the perks of working in software on a team with some remote members is that a significant portion of the interaction is done via chat (where I have a little more time to think my responses through and don’t become ‘peopled out’ as easily), and I think some of my teammates, as well as my manager are somewhere on the spectrum, so there’s that.
Beyond that, people have learned that I spook easily if I am deep in thought and have begun to warn me they’re coming to my cubicle via chat first, so that definitely helps…
I’m like you bronze just put my head down and work. However that’s also an issue I do warehouse work. The average warehouse I’ve worked at has around 2000 workers so it hard to stay under the radar esp. since people like to talk. I get what your saying people are just assholes it is what it is. I usually try to take it with a grain of salt however sometimes people want to take it to far and intimidate you provoking a fight so usually I lose my job in about a year or 2.
