How (not to) Make Someone Feel Useful/Important

20 06 2008

Floor Guy: Hey, Where’s Chris*?
Me: She’s out.  I’ll be holding down the fort for a while.
FG, disappointed: Oh.  When’s she coming back?
Me: In a few weeks.  (start sarcasm) Don’t you worry though, I’m PERFECTLY capable of taking care of things.
FG: But.. Chris’ coming back, right?

You know, nothing makes you feel quiet as wanted as someone being disappointed that you’re present.
