#MFU TO CONSTANTLY SAYING “HI” TO PEOPLE IN THE HALLS AT WORK

Call me crazy but when I’m at work I am, I dunno, thinking about work. Trying to get shit done. Part of my job, or at least working in an office, means pretending to care about how your weekend was, and oohing and aahing over baby shower and home renovation pics. I can do that! But for like, a very limited time. After that, I don’t want to be bothered. I also don’t want to have to say “Hi!” every time we pass each other in the hall or whenever you come near my desk. I said Hi in the morning; it’s enough.  We did that once today -- nothing’s changed in the hours since. You’re here! I’m here! Got it. After that, eye contact is enough. Nobody really wants to be here. Don’t make it worse by reminding us every time we look at each other. In fact, we could cut that out too.
