21. You walk into you office hoping no one notices your state.

28. Your friend leaves because you were not being talkative.

31. You enter all of your meetings sort of like this:

ID: 1118797

33. There are some snacks at the meeting, but you are a bit too agressive with them.

ID: 1119471

34. Throughout most of the meeting you are nonresponsive.

35. Unless you are making an attempt to drink your coffee.

ID: 1118817

36. Someone asks you to contribute to the discussion.

ID: 1118762

38. And you just know your boss is judging you.

ID: 1118805

ID: 1119474

40. You sit back down at your desk and your computer starts locking up.

ID: 1118856

41. And you just can’t seem to handle any assignment.

ID: 1118804

42. “Oh, thank GOD it’s lunchtime!”

ID: 1118827

43. Still too agressive.

ID: 1118831

44. You get to your desk after lunch.

ID: 1118774

45. And through the afternoon you pretty much phone it in…

ID: 1118832

46. …hoping your coworkers will help you pick up the slack.

ID: 1119470

47. Until you get asked to fill out your expense reports.
