An "All-Hands Meeting" is a meeting where everybody in the department gets together to have the big manager talk about the first quarter statistics with us.

Last time: I sat in the back, didn't say anything to anyone, hoped no one would ask me any questions, walked in late.

This time: Walked in on time, sat near people who I thought didn't like me, had two coworkers sit next to me (I talk to them!) and listened without being afraid of giving people the SA stare. I didn't have any panic attacks, and behaved myself :lol! Thanks, Paxil!

I have had a lot of trust issues with these people - they talked about me behind my back! I still managed to bite my lip and like the meeting.

Hey - I have noticed a lot of triumphs lately, keep them coming in!

Way to go milleniumman! It sounds like you handled yourself really well there. I haven't been around here that long so I don't know exactly how things were at work for you before, but it sounds like it sucked - big time!! All the more reason for you to feel proud of yourself for making the improvements that you have and not letting your crappy co-workers get to you! :yay

I think this is hilarious, btw. :lol I really like the term "SA stare." It almost sounds like a super power or something. :b Never fear, SA Man is here! Ridding the world of all evil, one insensitive, rude, over-confident jerk at a time!!!! you know, I think I'd go see that movie! :popcorn :lol I think us SAers need a superhero! :duel

The SA stare is like derealization, or something like it. It makes people feel uncomfortable if I look at them too long. I would look at people and not be able to say anything to them. My timing coils are seriously off in this area. It's far better with Paxil, though. I think people around me are afraid that I will still give them the SA stare, so they are afraid to look at me.
