Dans la catégorie c'est-pas-grand-chose-mais-ça-va-me-rendre-folle :

Ma chaise tourne toute seule. Et puis elle squeake. Je suis à la veille de m'installer par terre tellement ça me tombe sur les nerfs.

Étant donné que sur le plan de mon installation physique dans le bureau, je semble n'avoir aucune importance, c'est sans doute l'option la plus réaliste.

Life on the Red Carpet

The only time I ever found myself on an actual red carpet and surrounded by people I didn't know and who didn't know me, but who were really scared I might eventually be of some use to them and went all out as far as being polite went. I freaked out a little bit, but then realized I only needed to pretend I could actually be of some use to them eventually.

I just realized this is also key when starting a new job. I mean, here I pass people in the hallways constantly; most of them I don't know, but I know at some point we're gonna have to work together quite closely. For the first weeks I gave them an awkward smile, but now I actually smile at them as if I were really happy to see them and we had some kind of connection. And I wonder if they know I truly have no clue who they are and what they do...
