Having An Existential Crisis Attitude

, , , , | Working | October 16, 2018

(My coworker and I work together in a boarding facility that’s part of a vet hospital. We aren’t buds, but we’ve never had any issues. We don’t usually make small talk; we just keep to ourselves and do our work — always a lot to do — mostly not saying more than we need to, though we do occasionally chat. This particular day is no different. We have been working all day with minimal chatting — again, no passive attitude or anything. I come in after finishing what I have been doing, to help fold laundry, again not saying much, when, out of nowhere:)

Coworker: “I don’t know if you’re aware of this, but you really set me off sometimes; I come into work in a good mood and you just kind of ruin my day.”

Me: *slightly taken aback, and angry* “What do I do exactly?”

Coworker: “I don’t know. It’s not that you do or say anything in particular. You just set me off.”

Me: “So, my existence?

Coworker: “No. It’s nothing in particular… I don’t know, just your attitude.”

Me: *says nothing*

Coworker: “I’m going to go do one of the dog’s playtimes.” *walks away*
