1. In Your Office, No One Gives A Shit About You

They don't. Think your college professor didn't care about you? Your co-workers care even less. They don't care about your weekend, your well-being, or your personal life. Some of them won't even care enough to say "how are you" when you see them in the morning. Unlike your classmates in college, your officemates in the real world don't want to get to know you! They want to finish their work and get the fuck out of the office as soon as possible.

You are just a number to them.

Welcome to corporate America, kid.

  1. Hi, there! I blog-hopped my way here. Your blog is so amusing and it's nice that you are writing everything down as you go through each experience in the 'real world.' I learned about East Coast office-politics only two years ago, at 27! Where I'm from, people who sit next to each other, or even share the same floor, bond so quickly. But don't worry, I find that some people (and officemates) just take a while to warm up. Some, never, but you'll eventually find at least one friend in your work environment :)
