A former coworker once told me she was unfriendly and uncooperative when I started my job because she had really wanted her college friend to get the position. How could I know her friend applied for the job? How could I know my coworker's misguided loyalties would make my life difficult? There were invisible orbits of people around me, and all I knew is that I was trying my best with inexplicable obstacles in my path.
I don't know why I started remembering this, but then I couldn't stop thinking about it. All this time later, I want to yell "I won't do crazy with you!" This woman is still in the outer orbit of my life. She puts effort into looking and acting professional. You'd never know she'd sabotage her own job for the benefit of someone who didn't qualify for mine.
