Also involves having to have a dog, so that's an automatic no.

Anyway, I bought a bottle of cat repellant spray and used that, gonna see if it works. My yard stinks right now.

This might help, or at least make the situation more humorous.

Bah.

I'm in training for my new position at work. I don't mind the training, I don't.

When it's work related.

So far, we've also had those happy-feely idiots who have:
1) Asked us to tell them one unique thing about ourselves
2) Asked us to tell them one interesting thing about ourselves
3) Asked us to do that whole "2 truths, 1 lie" deal
4) Dance at our desks
5) Listen to music they choose to play (1 was played 4 times in a row because a trainer is using that for her wedding song)
6) Tell our neighbor how we feel about change
7) Tell our neighbor one thing that we fear about change
8) Pick a quote that sums up our life, and explain why it does

So far, this was the end of day 4 (we started last Thursday). I am fortunate that my neighbor shares with me the same sentiment, "what, are we in kindergarten again?"

I've had to explain that I do not have something unique or interesting I wish to share, because I dislike discussing myself. I couldn't get out of 3, but frankly, I don't care. I ignored the instructions for 4 and just stood there. I've put my hands over my ears (repeatedly) for 5. And for 8, "I don't have a quote." Which was, "Oh, well, could you have one by Wednesday, please."

I am too much my mother's daughter. I told her, I am at work to learn how to do my job, not to become friends with these people (but if I do, that's a side benefit), because I do not believe in this idiot idea of "work family." They are my colleagues, not my family. I don't care if I consider them friends, because at minimum, I expect them to do their damn job without fucking up, so I can do mine. She, too, is confused by this concept of a work family.

I am dreading tomorrow and the quote thing. It can go one of three ways: I use the House MD quote of "everybody lies." Should go over well with all the other religious and philosophical shit being thrown around. Or, I could say, again, "I don't have a quote," and follow it with, "And I don't define my life based on asinine quotes, so don't ask again." Or, hopefully, I'm simply not asked.

I'm rambling, but I am fucking irritated by this shit. There are currently four people in that training I consider friends (one of which is my roommate), but I wouldn't slot them into "family" slots. I just can't reconcile this. Why can't they have all just grown a couple more heads? That'd make more sense to me.

Why not just bring a "I don't care" quote? ;)

With my Lineage II server running into server stability issues today just a week after EUW on LoL also got KOd, I'm starting to think my <Server Destroyer> title should gtfo.

Nah, needs to be counter-culture.

My interesting fact would have been "I got 45 honor kills this weekend.. " and watch the room go silent...

My wife works for a company that does personality profiling so that management can see how employees would react to different kinds of team-building and motivation. Too many times the extroverted soft-skills people try to relate to the introverted people who get the work done, with the inevitable result being wasted time and lack of buy-in. Sounds like your company could use a big dose of understanding who they're dealing with, so that they could reach you more effectively.

Welp.

An attempt to again brush it aside ("No, I don't have a quote still,") was met with a, "You HAVE to do this."

Apparently, "Well, I can't. I don't define myself based on someone else's words," was a very good, very thoughtful, and very "deep" statement. It was perfect.

I was so irritated it took me a good hour or so to calm down. Fist clenching and all that. Sure, slightly unreasonable to be that mad, but the damn compliments sounded condescending and, "see, you're part of US!" sort of thing.

Certainly learned my lesson, with 1.5 weeks to go. All responses will be a silent head shake (and maybe I'll try out the murderous gleam and scare them).

At least now if someone asks me for a quote, I can quote you.

Well, if you really, really need a quote to live by, there is always the options of wow boss quotes...

Maybe they will stop after one of these:

"I will freeze you from within until all that remains is an icy husk!"
"Hungry worms will feast on your rotting flesh"
"I serve a new master now, mortals!" (But this one might end up that you need a new job...)

But to be honest, i`m glad they dont do those things at our work place... The poor people that would have to deal with the group of software developers that we have here...

Ha!

You're right, I should have shouted, "BY FIRE BE PURGED!"
