I always try to start a new opportunity with positivity. For example, when I started this WNV position for the summer, I was upbeat and excited.
But then it slowly crept in, and of course it was bound to happen...the negativity.
In this case, it's not the work per se. Instead, it's a couple of co-workers I have to deal with. Definitely not my favourite people. The type that walk around and think they own the place/know everything. Even more infuriating is that they interrupt conversations people are having that they are not a part of and interject their opinion. They are also so constantly negative and everything to them is a "tragedy". Way, way worse than I am.
I've been biting my tongue all this time, but I feel like I'm soon going to say "eff it. Shut the f*ck up" to them (as if I really would. Maybe not in those exact words, but something similar to that). I think I already sort of did today.
And as a result, the shrek-looking one whose face needs a thorough loofahing and looks like an ugly elephant gave quite the attitude to me. I can't help but laugh (along with the feelings of anger and insecurity I've been known to have).
Luckily I have some other co-workers I enjoy working with.
I just have to make sure I stay quiet and don't create any drama
