uhm, you have a boyfriend, he pays for everything (practically) because he's rich, he maybe a little O.C., but who isn't, and you have a job and your own place. what am i missing, brady?

Before I heard this story i was feeling sorry for the starving kids in Africa, but their problems seem minor compared to yours. Have some of my pity.

I hate the starving kids in Africa argument. Like any of us have the insane ability to empathize to that level.

I am sick of people who are insincere. I understand in the work place you arent really supposed to be sincere but there is a happy medium between putting on a show and being yourself. I know people are looking at me and smiling but really thinking "what is a girl doing here" because some of them are old school construction and mining people. If they dont treat me in that manner then I'm treated like their daughter. That I can deal with, but also again is a bit sexist.

I am sick of people telling me I don't talk enough. I know I am quiet, it's not some new revelation. It takes me a while to warm up to people--I need to feel out their personalities to know what kind of stuff I can talk to them about-- and when I do I talk quite a bit. However, when you come up to me and say "you don't talk enough!!" you are pushing me right out of any comfort zone I had established with you and making me talk less. I get it that some people are really uncomfortable when people dont say a lot... blahblah am I plotting something evil in the corner, am I stuck up, am I just a weirdo. I just don't want to small talk about meaningless crap becuase it's a waste of my time and I'm not good at it.

I also like keeping my door shut so I don't have to listen to other people waste their times B.S.ing (and everyone wonders why it takes me such a short amount of time to do things, it's because I focus and dont waste time) but the second I shut my door everyone thinks I've got a problem or I hate them. Jesus Christ.

At least the other office I worked in, everyone minded their own business. They were very busy and talked to me becuase they wanted to and not becuase they wanted to procrastinate on doing work. And they traveled so much that noone even noticed I was there half the time unless I wanted them to notice.

I dont want to be given the work noone else wants to do. I am not being used to my full potential and everyone is so worried about puffing themselves up that they don't have time to worry about helping me out and giving me lots of responsibility. And I'm sick of listening to conversations of people around me and it's obvious they think they are sooooo important. Blahblah I'm doing this blahblah I'm so cool blahblah. Just do your job and shut up.

yeah, accusing an introvert of being introverted is really not gonna change anything to their core personality. but they say so because it intimidates them. the best you can do is stay confident.

no, not really a lot of fat people

there are a bunch of old farmers (well I guess they are overweight but arent most old guys? they are either frail or fat) and mexicans.

im not being a literalist. there's a metaphorical adage that already exists for what she was trying to describe: "tip of the iceberg." she just tried to make herself look smarter than she is by putting in a bunch of senseless and redundant fluff words.
