A coworker of mine is planning to leave for a new job. Her problem is letting go of the one she has right now. I’m a little bit frustrated, because it’s not really my problem, and truly, she has been talking about this for almost two weeks now. Her problem with me is that I don’t go out much. It’s true, I don’t. She’s my lunch buddy and my best friend at work, and I love her to bits, but I’d much rather stay at home and recharge for the next day.
She’s said that people at our current workplace are boring. I wouldn’t really know; they seem okay to me. I haven’t gotten to know them well, but I’m willing to try. However, I’m nerdy and introverted, so that will be a problem. The others have a little fun–they go out shopping together, lunch out, etc. They’ve begun bringing her along too.
I don’t know what to do. I understand that there is some murky office politics involved. I should stay at the top of my game and play along. But now, I’m just tired and want to sleep.
