On Friday 1/22 I was all by myself in my little pod/cubicle area.
There are only four people in my small area to begin with. (Manager and three worker bees)
Then there are neighbors on the other side of the wall.
Everyone was off/out on Friday.
Yes, it’s the end of the year and people have to use their time or lose it by the end of January.
What I thought was funny was when someone walked by and commented: Are you lonely?
The honest answer: no.
The two co-workers don’t help me.
The manager can’t answer my questions, and I always have to email the senior manager who sits in another area away from us.
Luckily my neighbor on the other side of the wall from me is very helpful. So I did miss her. But she isn’t part of my small department.
So. Was I lonely on Friday? No.
Did I wish that I was off too? Yes!
