- I haven't told anyone about the job change or that I might be leaving by the end of the year because in my experience people make assumptions and I don't want to lead people to think that I'm not interested in being friends or building relationships.
- Well, isn't that like playing games? Can't you just live in the now and make friends and go to movies and do what you do and worry about later, well, later?
- In my experience most people don't live in the now the way you do. For example when I was working in * my boss just assumed that because I was American I was not going to stay around very long and he always passed me over for promotions. When I pointed out to him what he was doing and that his entire local staff had already turned over and I was his longest employee, he admitted right away he was making an assumption and I got the promotion shortly after.
- Hmm, I may not have the same experiences with human nature that you do, but I still think that not being completely yourself with your new friends is sort of game playing.
- Trust me, this is how it should be. I don't want to lose my new friends just because of something that might happen maybe later on. I don't want them to stop inviting me to stuff because I may be leaving someday.
So have you talked with K_ lately?
- No not really, but I figured between her school and her new boyfriend she was pretty busy right now.
- You see, you just did it. You just proved my point.
