    Smile and say hello and then go right back to what you were doing. And don't dwell on it. Concentrate on your work out.

    Well the good news is I just made supervisor at my job. I am basically right below a manager and I oversee all deli operations at the store I work at. I've only been at this company 9 months and I'm 20-years-old. Part of me feels like it was my over-confidence that got me the job. I have noticed that I cut corners a lot when doing a lot of work and it sets a bad example for the new hires I'm training. I also have to be able to make orders, receive invoices, handle money, etc, which I can all do but it's just so much on top of my regular workload. It's nervewracking. I'm trying to train myself to chill out more but it's hard.

    I also can't stop thinking about my coworker Brian who just got fired. He was this much older guy, a very typical backwoods New Hampshire kinda-racist-kinda-gross-still-sweet-and-hilarious type, who honestly was a really sweet and kind guy just had a lot of eyerolling dad jokes. Anyway, months and months ago he allowed this 40-y/o gay dude who had just started working at our job to live in his apartment for him to get his shit together (because his shit was definitely not together) . Even though their backgrounds were so different, they became really good friends. But I guess Brian got really obsessed with trying to help this dude out, and got furious when he saw that he was saving money for alcohol and weed and vacations and not for a house or something. There was so much unnecessary drama all because this guy Brian was trying so hard to be a good person that he ended up being a shitty person. And he kept having mental breakdowns and delusions that everyone hated him or was out to get him. He always talked to people, non-stop, because he liked having friends. The dude was homeless in NH for 5 years. I really liked that guy, not because he sold me hash and edibles but because he was really fun to talk to and was deep down a really sweet and happy guy. However his latest mental breakdown cost him his job because he no-call no-showed. I was so mad, because I was the only person vouching for him when everyone else made fun of him.

    I got a text a few days later that said "Hey buddy, how are you? I am well, had a mental breakdown. I am better now. Guess I have to look for another job. Hope to see you soon. Stay cool."

    I hate being such a sensitive fuck because I'm so sad over this guy and how bad his life is and I just hate being exposed to that stuff. I wish I could just not care. It's also fucked up because he changed the locks on that dude who was living with him and threw out ALL of his shit including his social security info and stuff. So now I can't take either person's side honestly.
    Hmm...it's probably best that you don't take sides in a situation like that. It sounds like both guys have their issues. Meanwhile it looks like your personal prospects are improving.

    I'm eating salad right now and it's definitely not making me laugh. In fact, I'm giving it the side-eye...

    I hope it doesn’t have tainted lettuce from Arizona in it.

    Wow. If only you knew how daunting something as simple as that feels to me. And then if I did muster up the courage to merely say hello, my mind will immediately revert to "why would a girl as beautiful as this show any interest in someone like me with these far superior guys around?". Either way it feels hopeless.

    And then what if she wasn't interested and I go ahead and say hi and she ignores me and all I do is end up embarrassing myself?

    yeah that's true. I'm still really lonely and down all the time but at least I am making better money and being taken seriously at my job.

    Good night last night, as it turned out I got a cracking seat LOL. Good show, particularly for my first ever WWE show.

    You're not saying hi to find out if she's interested in you, you should say hi just to be polite. If she doesn't say hi back, then you know she's rude and you ignore her from then on.

    I'm sure there's other people at work to talk to with less baggage

    Like ed said, if you speak to her and she ignores you, she isn't worth your time. If she says hello back, just ask her how she's doing. Go from there.

    Can't stand it pal. It feels like a constant slap in the face.
