Yes I'm ranting again

We have some new people at work.  I have never been introduced to them and they've never even said hi.

 

This really makes me feel horrible. I am really shy - painfully so. I might say hey to someone but I have never been able to initiate a conversation if I don't know them very well.

 

I admit I put up walls but I don't mean to snub people. I mean if someone came up to me and asked why I'm like that I can tell them but why do they have to treat me like I don't exist and don't have feelings?

 

I know I smile very rarely but I'm unhappy right now.  I just don't get people sometimes.

You should tell your supervisor how you feel if you don't speak up they will keep walking on you. Trust me I know.

It won't make any difference Carol (I sent you an email so you will probably understand why when you read it).

I don't know how is the best way to deal with it in you work but I'm sending you a big hug and letting you know that I'm here for you

:( *hugs* I agree with Carol. Talk to you supervisor about it if you can. You really should have been introduced to them when they came on. That's just polite even if you're not going to work with them at all. *more hugs*

The thing is, with a couple of them, I had to take a phone call right when they were being brought over to our section and introduced to my colleagues, so I didn't even know their names at first and they never bothered to come up to me and say 'hi, I'm so and so ... Sorry, you were on the phone when I was over being introduced to your colleagues.' It's not like I could ignore the phone, since it is my job.

The way that makes me feel is: 'oh, don't worry about her, she's not important'.

*all the hugs* Darn it. I wish I knew how to make it better, sweetie. Really though, I do think your supervisor should have introduced them properly. It's not that hard to make an effort later, after you were off the phone. *cuddles you*

Argh, I hate that. That's a really frustrating and annoying situation, and I hate that that's making you feel bad about yourself. Whoever was handling the introductions should've waited til you were off the phone.

The thing is, I used to like the people in the company, now I'm hating the lot of them. They're making me withdraw further into my shell and probably think I'm the one being rude or snobbish. Do they not realise how hard it is for me?

The other day one of the girls asked when my birthday was (we have a birthday cake thing at the end of the month). Like, seriously? I've been there for nearly two years and you're only now just asking me about my birthday? Yeah, way to make me feel wanted. I told her and then said, yeah, I get forgotten a lot.

Oh girl. Let me say that you are stronger then you might feel. There's nothing wrong with being the quiet one or too shy. You keep that needed smile on you face because you are not alone, ever. Stay positive always and don't worry about what your co-workers think. You know you are a good person. If those new employees choose not to get to know you then it's their loss.
Keep ya head up!!!

Well, I'll just keep my head down and bum up and just do my work and in the meantime keep looking for another job where I don't have to deal with the stress every day.

I think that Helena said it best. You're a sweet and wonderful person. I could go on and on if you want. ;)

Just remember that you also have friends here in the states who care about you.

HUGS

I've always been pretty hard on myself, as you know. Oh well, screw the lot of them. If they're going to treat me that way then I don't need them.

I couldn't agree with you more. *HUGS*
