    Why I am So Emotionally Drained At The End Of The Day
    ... because I need to keep smiling through shit like this:

    Cast of Characters:
    Me – self explanatory
    Alanna – friend in the office.
    Coworker 1 – woman in her, I don't know, midthirties maybe?
    Coworker 2 – woman in her, again, I don't really know, but let's say early 50s

    Downstairs lobby of my building. Coworker 1 and Coworker 2 say hello to Alanna and I and promptly turn their backs to us, as they were in the middle of a conversation. Two elevators arrive at the same time. Alanna and I get in a different elevator than the rest of the crowd that is waiting.

    (cut to the 35th floor)

    I exit the elevator maybe two seconds after Coworker 1 and Coworker 2 turn the corner. I can hear them talking but don’t know what about. Coworker 1 sees me out of the corner of her eye.

    Coworker 1: whispers something inaudible
    Coworker 2: what did you say I can’t hear you
    Coworker 1: whispers something I can’t hear

    Coworker 2 promptly looks over her shoulder, sees me not three steps behind her, and stops dead in her tracks. Sidestepping so I can walk past her. As I continue down the hall, and Coworker 1 and Coworker 2 turn the corner we hear this:

    Coworker 2: God it’s just like school all over again.

    Yeah but only because you're making it that way.

    The 15th can't come soon enough at this point. It's getting too hard to hold back the tears in the office. This is just downright humiliating.

      I am constantly amazed by the behavior of "adults." Honestly...
      Keep your head up!
