So, I had this woman come up to me at work and say ‘I know nothing at all personal about you.’ She then stopped and looked at me as if she was waiting for me to divulge all my secrets to her. I just said ‘Well, there you go.’ That’s Aussie speak for 'ok, so what?' Don’t you think if you don’t know anything about someone that there is the very good probability that the person you don’t know anything about isn’t inclined to share anything with you? And why is that? Because they don’t want to. Why not? Because in the scheme of that person’s life you may mean stuff all to them. Not everyone is going to share every intimate detail of their life with someone they work with. Work is work. You’re forced together with others for financial reasons. Fact - 99% of people wouldn’t show up at work if they didn’t have to. 1% will because they’re insane and generally have no life. Occasionally at work you’ll meet someone simpatico who you enjoy talking to but the reality is most of the time work is doing what you have to and waiting for the hands of the clock to move to that appointed time when you can get the hell out of there. I don’t want to hold hands and sing Kumbaya with you. It’s work. It’s not personal. It just is.
