SoCal_PR 4 years ago on Is It Okay To Not Have Work Friends Or Am I Just A Psychopath? The age gap can play a big part in not having work friends. I started at my current job a couple of months ago and, while I’ve gotten to know everyone here reasonably well, I haven’t become friends with them by any means. The next youngest person in the company is 15 years older than I. They just have slightly different interests and priorities than I do, so we don’t all hang out, which is okay. Like Bill said, at the end of the day, the main reason you’re at work is to make money. 0 Log in to reply or vote on comments

“Susan in HR” had me shook because the head of HR at my work’s name is actually Susan. She is the closest thing I have to a work friend and she’s in her early 60s.
The articles about random everyday stuff are arguably the best though
European airlines are great. That being said, the most recent time I traveled to Europe, I flew premium economy with American on the way there and premium economy with British Airways on the way back. Food and service were better on American but ambiance and features were better on British. Idk why, but I enjoyed American more.
I moved back to my hometown after graduation a few months ago. I’m living with the folks while I save up from a job I recently landed. I wouldn’t describe my hometown as a shell of its former self per se, but it’s different. As I go through life, it’s tough to ignore an increasing sense of change, distance and unfamiliarity. People move on with their lives, some people die, some people fade in to obscurity, some never leave. I suppose it’s just a necessary and unfortunate part of life. As a sentimental person, it’s definitely tough. Great article, man.
I recently graduated sans job as well. Took the edge off my Scaries when I saw some of these
The last one really crushed me. What else would I binge-watch on Sunday nights? What would I do without that soothing intro jingle? The Frasier Shitposting community would fall in to disarray.
I very much approve of this list
I’d also throw Mental Detachment in there. It sort of goes without saying, but when I have the Monday Scaries, I see everyone powering through their workday and I’m just aimlessly bouncing from one thought to another while disassociating myself from everything/everyone.
Although I have mild depression and anxiety, I had to downvote this because Monday Scaries are, in fact, a thing.
Welcome to the page, Will. Took ya long enough
It’s easy to become cynical after 21 rolls by. I know that I didn’t even do anything wild for my 21st, but I can imagine having a renewed enthusiasm for birthdays down the road. We have to give ourselves something to celebrate to combat the mundanity of our everyday lives and unceasing marching of time.
That opening paragraph perfectly summed up what Sundays are.
Just the title alone hit me pretty hard. Great article, Nick
I like how your articles have a theme of introspective profundity. They’re relatable on a deeper level than the average article. Keep up the good work
Very accurate. I know it sounds cliche and cheesy, but next time you feel like you need a good laugh and you have a few extra bucks, go to The Comedy Store or something. Whether it’s with a couple friends or you roll solo, it’s the closest you can get to planning belly laughter and it’ll brighten up your night.
Idk if you’ll see this, Rachel, but reading this really helped me today. Thank you and Happy Holidays.
This gave me anxiety
