Unwind
<div class="text-justify">

He was sitting in the corner almost directly in my line of sight, if I stared ahead of me he would be gone, but this was a formal event, why was he dressed so plainly ontop of that it looked like no one bothered to take note. 

I shrugged and went back to half-listening to the tables chatter, it was the usual mixture of gossip, personal anecdotes and work banter. None of it was nearly as interesting as the seemingly unnoticed and yet completely out of place man in the corner. 

<img src="https://files.steempeak.com/file/steempeak/penderis/MionMZgo-analog-audio-cassette-2796145_cover.jpg">

&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;"Did you hear about Jenny? Her daughter had a miscarriage, and oh she was so excited for her first grandchild." The CEO's secretary asks and tells me, as she places her hand on my arm as though I am the one that needs consoling. 

I fain concern replying to the wretched old woman "Oh, no. that is very unfortunate. I do hope she took some time off to be with her family. I did not see any leave applications on my desk, maybe I missed them." 

As much as I disliked the chatty secretary I have always respected how cautious she was of me. She tended to pick up on my cold disregard for anything related to "compassionate leave" as they would have to tick that box when providing me with their leave application. Although I am not able to deny them in many cases I can however considerably shorten the leave period. 

I don't think that makes me a bad guy, I am just trying to teach them that work is work and family is well at home, they do not provide these people with anything if anything they are a cost. 

To be fair, I have a pet and when times were tough I fed my kitty instead of myself. People are different though, and they do not deserve the same level of compassion as an animal. That is not to say they deserve cruelty. There he is. 

I somehow lost track of the man while the lady so rudely told me her little bit of gossip and lead me down the inevitable maze of thought. I have not seen a waiter approach him, maybe he got a drink at the bar. 

Very strange I think, I wonder why he perplexes me so much. 

<br><hr><br>

Getting up to head to the bathroom I am happy to see that his table is right on the way. 

&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;"Hi, I am Mike, how are you tonight?" I try to sound casual and friendly. This is a work conference after all and we all are supposed to know each other if even just through recognition. Many are even meeting for the first time, with the inclusion of some satellite branches joining head-office this year. 

&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;"Tim." He says looking up for a brief moment before going back to surveying the crowd. I am not one to be given the cold shoulder, because firstly that is what I do and secondly I wanted to know what I wanted to know. "Which branch are you from?" I asked ignoring his silent plea to be left alone. 

&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;"I am not from any branch. Hey, could you do me a favour and get me another whisky? I snagged this one from the table over there because the help here seems to not want to serve me on account of me not being invited." He said, in a tone that clearly means do what I ask or fuck off. 

So I did what he asked and sat down opposite him. He ignored me for a good minute before asking what I did for the company and I told him I work in human resources at which he snorted a bit of his whisky back in the glass. 

&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;"Well that sounds absolutely horrible, how about another whisky?" He announced slamming the tumbler down. "Sure, how about I get us a bottle," I said thoroughly entertained. This man gets it. It is absolutely horrible. He nods in agreement as I leave the table amused with this person I have just met. 

That is the thing about me, it is not that I dislike everyone and everything so much that I reject any and all connection. Sometimes, I welcome the distraction and over the years I have learnt not to expect anything else. No years of friendship or unbreakable ties, just moments of something different. "An honest laugh will always fade."  popped into my thoughts, and with a smile, I concur. "Bartender, please give me a bottle of Jameson and a bucket of ice. Oh, and a bottle of water to start."

I never really got my head around Human Resources, it’s just a step up from feline litter or bovine pats. Great story - I’ll take the Jameson with no ice - pretty sure this is on cool down but will try @tipu curate

Haha yes I had to quickly google HR job description and decided I would avoid saying anything too specific apart from the leave forms which I was happy to see is in their job description. It does seem to be a general term for admin / training though. I do assume it is a soulless job and he could just as well be in PR then. Thanx for the tipu and resteem. <br> https://media.giphy.com/media/2tRqcMiy9aXwHiJuyJ/giphy.gif

In one of my previous companies, the HR team had a bit of a bad reputation, so much so they acquired the nickname Human Remains, rather than Human Resources. Definitely a bottle of whiskey needed after an encounter with them!

I wonder if that encouraged them to live up to the name even more, what if you called them the toothless puppies? :)

@penderis, In my opinion this is very common **Scenario** in **Job Meetings** many don't like and prefer it but they have to attend because there is no choice.

Specially we will going to engage in **Coversations**, those conversations which we don't want to hear at all, but at the same time these conversations goes on because they come up as formal conversations.

Some people definitely talks with **Facial Expressions** and we can catch the **Expression Of Ignorance**. Specially in formal meetings we can experience it quite often.

Yes, **Expectation** many times leads to failure because those are just our **Imagination** and most of the times it's not correlating with the actual reality.

Have a wonderful time ahead and stay blessed.

Etiquette is sucky, I definitely also avoid any formal setting which forces engagement you are right about the facial expressions they do give away a lot. Thanx for reading.

I think I've expressed my views on Human Resources more than once here on steemit, lol.  I am *not* a big fan.

I went to a friend's wedding when I was 17, and they had what had to be the cheapest whiskey ever, in gallon jugs.  I got drunk and then got sick on it and then for years I couldn't stand even the smell of whiskey.

It's still way down at the bottom of the list of my favorite alcoholic beverages today.

Gratz on the Curie!

I am like that with tequila and a thing called hunters dry-lemon cider , I can still smell the cider but can't drink it at all and tequila again the smell kills me yet if I block my nose and have a fuckton of lemon I can get it down. I typed leave form first then was like awe shit what job is that, and I think the job suits the guy he is quite cold and miserable :)

When you mention the lemon with tequila, I assume you're talking about the salt, shot and lemon routine.  I absolutely LOVE doing that routine!  Gives me a real rush!  One of the reasons I love tequila.

Tequila is my favorite alcohol of all.  But I will only buy the premium stuff, like Patron or El Tesoro De Don Felipe, but they are so expensive.  I'll only shell out $60 some USD for a bottle of booze once in a while, so that's why I drink rum mostly, or red wine.  I never drink cheap tequila - it will do a real number on you!
