I know you haven't been able to tell it too much around here lately, but basically I am a happy person. I love to laugh, I love to have fun, I love making other people laugh with me.
This, apparently, is a very bad thing to some people.
When I first started my job, I was pretty psyched to be there and trying to make friends and everyone was like "Are you this happy all the time?" and I was like "Yes" and they were like "Crap". As time has gone on, I still try to not let what is going on at home spill over in to the office - so I go in with a smile on my face, I laugh and joke on the phone with our customers and STILL people are annoyed with me about it.
I don't get it...I get annoyed when people are in pissy moods and nasty, I never thought of getting annoyed with people for being pleasant and happy and laughing. What is up with that???
So now I'm in an awkward position - I have no idea how to behave. I cannot help who I am; I like to laugh and I laugh easily with people. Several customers have told me that they love when I answer the phone because I make them happy. Do I stop laughing so that my co-workers aren't annoyed? I just don't know and really, what a stupid problem to have!
Just what I need, more stupidity in my life!
