I work with a guy who is so flippin needy. He has to be a part of every conversation, whether it pertains to him or not. He talks non-stop, but never has anything of value to say. He vomits his thoughts everywhere and expects whoever is listening to clean it up. I just want to do my work in silence. I just can’t handle him today.
He doesn’t know how to take hints. I ignore him, avoid eye contact or respond with a “hmm” or “uh-huh”. I don’t know what else to do to get this kid to leave me alone. He just wants constant approval. I don’t work like that. I’m an introvert and like to work without constant interruption.
To top it all off, he likes to talk in a Japanese accent all the time. When he wants to talk to me he says “Mrs. Serena” in old Japanese man style.
