Company annual dinner tonight, I’m on the organising committee. So I get to leave the office earlier and get there to help set things up. Game stalls, food stations, lucky draws, table prizes.
If it weren’t for the fact that I’m in the committee I wouldn’t even attend. I feel better at being an organiser so I can be running around than sitting at the table trying to make small talk with people I have little in common other than work.
How many people are friends with their co-workers anyway? Actually, quite a few. After all, we spend a hell of a lot of time with them.
Don’t get me wrong. I like my co-workers. Well, most of them. But it’s not like I’m gonna tell them my deepest darkest secrets right? I’ll go as far as joking and being friendly, that’s my limit.
