So How's Work?
Today is my third day back at work and while my team seems pleased with my return, the rest of my colleagues and manager are kinda making me feel...well...like the red headed stepchild.
Granted, there's a lot going on, what with a corporate visit and such, but how long does it take to pick up the phone and say, "Welcome back!"? Is it too much trouble to put a little enthusiasm behind an impromptu "Welcome Back" as you pass by someone on speakerphone? Bloody hell, I'll take a hastily scribbled fax, but nope.
This is my 8th year with my company. I've worked with the majority of these people since the beginning. The one I've worked the shortest with has been with the company for 3 years. Hello? I'm not new, here.
Perhaps it's because this is my third time back from sick leave, but that's beyond my control and it's just ridiculous to hold that against me.
Oh, I know...it's 'cause I got so fat. That makes much more sense.
