I seem to be a pretty popular guy - at least today, that is.
It seems that since I've come to work today, I've had more people wanting to talk to me about random shit than anything even closely work related.
Some of the things I've had people talk to me about today:
- Holiday plans.
- Gardening (and I have the blackest thumb EVER)
- Ripped pants.
- Monkeys (Dont even ask)
- Government of Canada letting Vancouver Island be its own Province. (Complete nutjob had this idea.)
I'm not sure why these people chose to talk to me about this shit, but even with cutting each conversation short and putting on my "scowl" face, listening to their crap seemed to drain valuable seconds off my life.
I should make note that these topics weren't short and quick, either, they were painful. The "Holiday" one, for instance, wasn't just "I'm going on Holidays!", it was an extended explanation of the itinerary for what appears (at least to me,) to be the most boring vacation ever.
But still, this person felt the need to to tell me.
Maybe it's phermones or something. Maybe I was giving off the "I give a shit" vibe.
..I'm going to have to work on that.
