Well, I don't know you... but I know mistakes I made. I came in too excited and wanted to help everyone, wanted to make friends, was very eager. I had no ill intentions. One girl decided I was trying to be a know-it-all and show everyone I was "better" then everyone else. It was a rough and crappy first year. Some people get pretty defensive when new people are hired - they take the suggestions as "trying to change things" and get their guard up. Oh, and people hate hearing, "At my OLD JOB we did it this way... " That's like talking about an ex on a first date! Nono! I have *no* idea if this applies to you! Just trying to help.
