Look, I’m filling in for someone. I’ll be here for a month, tops. Would everyone in the department please stop coming by my desk to stare at the new guy? If you’d like to introduce yourself, fine, but please cut the small talk because I really don’t give a shit if Ron over in A/R is “such a jokester”. I couldn’t care less that Stacy in Accounting is pregnant again. I’m quite up-to-date on the merits of why I should get a flu shot, thankyouverymuch. And most of all, I loathe repeating my work history with the hospital for Every. Fucking. Person. I know you’re only asking to keep par with the social convention that comes with meeting a new coworker, so I’m more than willing to let it slide… I won’t be the least bit insulted if you ask me nothing that doesn’t have to do with my current job.
I normally am a very social person, but at least 20 people who I will never have any common work with have come by since I started. Let me do my damn job.
I hate this contract. I can’t wait for it to end.
