I am really trying very hard to fit in at my job. I've been on assignment at a nice advertising agency for a couple of months now, and I'm really making an effort to get along, meet my co-workers. An office is a quick cure for loneliness in some ways, and I expected this would be a good opportunity for me.
That said, I would like you to know that walking into a crowded men's bathroom on and announcing, "Man, it's a real sausage fest in here," does nothing to expedite one's orientation process or endear one to the staff.
At least I earned a nickname today, which is something I've always wanted. I would not have chosen "Jerkass" but, then again, nicknames are not chosen; they're earned.
