So I make good money, I have decent hours and the freedom to chat on cafemom apparently too...but I come to work every day dreading it! Why? I can't figure it out. My bosses are rude, but aren't all in same way? So I figured it out today. They are robots! I work with only 4 other people and while 2 are nice, they are in their own dept and we don't interact as much as I'd like. But my 2 bosses are so robotic with work and nothing else that it is depressing me. There is no conversation, there are no smiles, there is no happiness here at all. Birthdays are only celebrated because I bake a cake and make everyone at least acknowledge the person's special day. Even then, people take the cake and go right back to their offices. This place is like a morgue or something. I am so happy and bubbly by nature and these people are bringing me down everyday!
I have my side business, but it's still so new. So I can't quit yet. But I am definitely considering looking elsewhere. This is just too stressful. I'm not the "keep my head down" type. I need to interact with people other than just one line questions, one word answers and then a grunt in recognition of the problem being solved.
Even the movie "Office Space" was more lively than this place!

You celebrate birthdays?! LOL you’d hate it here. We used to send a card around for everyone’s birthday but that stopped a couple years ago after the woman responsible for buying the cards, with her own money and no reimbursement, got sick of doing it. Especially after NO ONE bothered to get her a card or even say happy birthday on her birthday! (BTW, that woman is me!)
