You are so right, Duxxy! I'm not a real people person, so I never even interviewed for those kinds of positions.Originally Posted by Duxxy;3176259;
It's funny you posted this, because I have sort of the opposite problem. I'm mostly on my own in my office, but I cover for the receptionist's lunch hour three times a week. I will also cover the front desk for a few hours when she has a vacation day. Because I'm not naturally outgoing, I always make it a point to smile and say "How may I help you?" to everyone who comes in the door. Sometimes people just stare through me like I'm not there, and other times people immediately say "Where's X(the regular receptionist)?" and don't even say hi to me. I want to yell "I'm a person, not a piece of office equipment!"
You can see why I'm not much of a people person, no patience.
