I looked through the window of my office and saw the rain had started to fall. I could remember I wanted to wash few clothes this morning before I left for work but I wasted my time thinking like a weather reporter. “Is it supposed to rain today?” I had asked myself. My precious self did not give an answer and I left home. I met my neighbor spreading her washed clothes on the line. “Is it going to rain today?” I said myself again and well, darling me did not provide an answer still. Can I blame me? I did not study geography or any weather forecasting course while college. Well, we have a new kid on the block and by that, I meant my company employed a new staff today.
I wasn’t supposed to get this soaked with the rain. I meant judging by the drop of the rain through my window before I left the office, my clothes shouldn’t be this dripping. I thought I got this but I did not. And not only did I get my clothes wet, I got my precious blue shoes wet also. I left the office premises alone today as I do always but today, everyone was getting thinking if they should stay back for a while maybe the rain might stop soon. I know they were all trying to hang out with the new colleague (the new kid on the block).
My employer decided to give express employment. She employed a female staff today to join the team. It is good though, with the rate of unemployed youths in this country. The pay is not high. You can’t save from it. I got to the office and my supervisor was explaining some things to the new staff. Everyone was smiling. I settled down on my seat immediately because I’ve got some things to do. I was meant to say hi but she was busy with other colleagues and crowd is not my thing.
I missed a call from a friend while I was away from my phone. I always miss calls. I decided to call home before calling my friend back. Left with little calling card on my phone, I called my friend and her number was switched off. I was free of tasks for some minutes and was on my phone. I am always on my phone. The new colleague came in and just over look me at my seat. I had wanted to open my mouth first but she just snubbed me. It felt like she was told something about me. I felt so bad but brushed it off. I don’t get along with other colleagues because I am always on my own. I answer questions directly pointed at me. I don’t cross my line. I don’t go to other offices to gist. I have never felt so left out as I did feel today.
I got home few hours ago, jotted this blog post down and I still feel like I just got home. I am somewhat under the weather. My precious blue shoes are still wet. I was grateful I did not get my phone wet. I have decided to made a small chat with the new colleague but I don’t know how to start. I wouldn’t even know what to say. Have a line I can drop? Publishing this to go watch some Americas got talent videos I downloaded.
