People who over share with work colleagues as a result of being 1) emotionally needy and / or 2) desperate for attention are quite possibly the worst. Boundaries and self awareness please, and thank you. (Waits for all those who fit this description to come after me in the comments…)

I’m in pretty good shape but I haven’t been able to fence for two years because of work. Pretty specific muscles needed. I fenced hard tonight, mostly against teenagers. No, I am not in good shape, especially aerobically. Time for rowing machine and jump rope on the days I’m not fencing (2-3 per week). It will take a couple of months. I’m going to hurt tomorrow. Ugh.

My friends and I are playing a game where we buy all of your politicians — I maxed out on like three Congress Representatives' campaigns this week, alone — so the government writes laws that reflect my concerns, and passes them for everyone.

You’re upset and don’t know how to talk about it, SO other asks what’s wrong a few times and you say nothing - does it warrant the SO telling you to call them when you want to talk and hangs up (in a passive aggressive “fine if you don’t want to talk then I’m going to leave” way, not a supportive way). Or am I in the wrong for not telling them after they’ve asked a few times?

I prefer to hire people with character and grit. Maybe they got a 3.2 GPA because they didn't want to be the smartest in the room, so they took courses so hard that they had some hard-won Cs and Bs, or there was a field they sucked at but were passionate about, so they persisted with it until they got better at it. They know what failure feels like, and how to bounce back until they achieve their goal. I'd take that candidate any day over the 4.0 who's avoided failure all their life.
