>First day at costa >All my co-workers are chain smoking 20 somethings with a kid they knocked up >Literally all they talk about is getting shitfaced on the weekend and smoking drugs >They ask me what I did with my life so far and I tell them (travel, study) >Tfw you feel superior to all of them
>have been working here for 3 years now >no friends except this fat autistic guy who no one likes who talks to me because I watch sports >I hate talking to him
I need a new job. I could have made friends if my coworkers didn't immediately make it clear they hated me for being so quiet. I've heard rumors behind my back that people think I'm going to shoot up the place. I'm not even angry or anything, I'm just quiet and this is how people treat you if you're quiet. I fucking hate that if I'm not outgoing and asking people how their weekend went that automatically makes them think I'm an angry potentially violent person.
The fucking cunt that started spreading the rumors about me is one of the most popular people in the office too. Every time I see her I just scowl, she's such a backstabbing whore
>>25987411 I don't know that feel bro. >Tfw pizza delivery >Tfw getting to eat free food every day >Tfw all my coworkers think my car is awesome >Tfw they're all laid back and help me whenever I need it >Tfw when I told them I never tried weed before, they all took me out back and gave me my first blunt
>worked at my job for year and 1/2 now >mfw my coworkers still underestimate my powerlevel >they know I live my parents, don't drink or smoke, quiet, social anxiety >ripped on occasionally for this >they found out I'm high test as fug >endless ridicule now >every fat chick we see, "GO GET EM ANON" "SHE BIG ENOUGH FOR YOU? XDDD"
>been at job for almost 2 years >most of the time everyone is nice >rest of the time they shit on me >tried to become friends with some of them >gave out steam, psn, and phone number >never get invited to do anything >they go out together almost every week >never been invited >try taking annoying shifts so they like me more >use it as a chance to shit on me some more
>21 years of age >have always worked simple retail jobs around HS/college, easy stuff and we all get along with little stress >have to go on a mandatory internship to complete bachelors degree >everyone is older and smarter than me, have life experiences outside of college >feel like a retard around them >can tell they don't like me even though I really try my best and enjoy the work for the most part >everyone is bitchy and uptight
I'm thinking of just being a researcher and a professor at this point. The business world is just a bunch of angry people pointing fingers at each other and meetings. It's killing my passion for acquiring more knowledge about my major. At least in college everyone is on the same level learning and enjoying the process while helping each other out.
>love what I do >love learning new things >happy working 2nd shift >work pays for my college >mainly work on robots >co-workers in same department are breddy cool >operators and team leaders are fucking retarded >wish I could smack them when they say/do stupid shit
>Worked simple minimum wage jobs through college. >Always had friends, people had each others back, pretty stress free work. >Graduate. >Accept corporate world job offer. >Department is dog eat dog. >Consistently piled up with more work than I can handle. >So is everyone else, so they couldn't help me out even if they wanted to. >I'm a shy beta, so I'm consistently berated for not being aggressive enough for that type of environment. >Am new (obviously) to this type of work, so make mistakes and get berated by boss about it. >Got told about two weeks ago basically if I don't like it, "the door is right there." >Stayed on because muh paycheck.
Pretty sure I'm going to be fired soon and I won't be sad when it happens. Just staying on to get as much money from them as I can.
>>25990526 The fuck are you even going on about and why are you so angry? I go to a large school so I'm part of a department inside of a college inside of the university made up of 3 similar majors and it's a pretty small and tight knit group. I'm applying to grad school now and have been a TA for a bit and really enjoy it.
What precious ideas? That I like academia more than business? Why do you care so much and what is wrong with that? I have a 4.0 so it's not like I don't understand the material. If you didn't go to MIT then I don't give a fuck, I go to a great and respected school.
I put in my two weeks last wednesday but they're only keeping me on until this wednesday.
Going to try my hand at some online freelancing shit but if that doesn't work out I'll probably go back to low level service industry shit and then grad school.
I just can't hack that shit man. I don't understand how people can survive in that type of environment for extended periods of time- I've wanted to shoot myself in the face for the last month and a half.
Fortunately I have a bit of money saved up and I haven't taken on any onerous financial obligations (no debt student or otherwise, no car, shithole apartment, etc. etc.) so I can afford to stay out of the workforce for a little while.
>>25988456 well do your own thing then. they dont like you, too bad for them. unless it's actually affecting your work then just ignore them and they will eventually come around. which is the point where you say no, fuck you for treating me like i don't exist. and dance happily away from them like a fucking ballerina
>>25991767 make non-verbal gestures to show that you acknowledge their existence but choose not to join in on their faggotry. a simple head nod or hand wave as you walk by would suffice. it sounds like these dudebros wouldn't make great friends anyways so i don't know why you care so much.
>>25989344 kek. finger gun that bitch with a wink. progressively move up to shotgun cocking, then assault rifle spraying, grenade tossing, rocket launcher firing. sry i'm having way too much fun with this
>>25992268 stay topical. come in with a weird news story from florida or something. memorize a good joke story or lie about your life in general like you bang hookers when you get off work and they like it so much they spend the night
>>25990857 >I have to hold back with him or the whole department would shit on me
For 15 mins? But seriously, fuck that guy and fuck your company for only having one toilet.
--------- So far I have had some good luck with colleagues in general. Some retardedly slow/lazy who couldn't manage a single task, others pretty chill and fun to work with. Not the "let's go out on weekends" kind of guy, but I appreciate (or rather manage to withstand) small chats during commuting and some coffee break.
I don't get why this is a problem. I've only worked shitty entry-level jobs so I'm sure my anecdote wouldn't apply in like a real career but I've made it clear at every job I work at that I have no intention of socializing with co-workers and I'm just here to do my job and leave. I was well hated at McDonald's because I would just set my headset down and leave when my shift was over and apparently I was supposed to ask for permission or at least wait until somebody came to relive me. Like no, I want to sleep.
