It’s been a non-stop smorgasbord of interruptions today.
Within 10 minutes of walking in I’m hearing about office drama. It’s a challenge to get work done if someone’s bending my ear about non-work related stuff. And shortly after, someone walked in the office asked if I was busy, but swooped in for a question anyway before I could answer.
I was busy. Go away.
I have shit to get done. I do. Now go away.
I don’t hate people, but as an introvert, too much people contact, in combination with the interruptions, is draining – and there are people, who as soon as they start talking, I'll feel my energy being sucked out. I call those people energy vampires. Most days I’m internally screaming to leave by 10:00AM; I’m mentally exhausted when I leave work every day – not just once in a while, but every day.
I can’t even have a 30-minute lunch break – in a conference room with the doors closed – without someone interrupting and asking a work-related question. It’s ridiculous. I just want 30 minutes away from everything and everybody … please go away.
On the positive side of this day, the day’s more than half done and at 4:30, I can go away. Booyah.
