A Revolution is underway

As you know, I transfered out here about two months ago. My initial reaction to the office was...odd. It was deathly quiet and my area is way in the back where no one sits. I kinda figured, ok, no one socializes. That's cool. Well, not really, but you know what I mean...

Four other people accepted the same transfer, including three other people from DC. (We have a lot of offices in DC so I didn't know any of them.) Well, this last week I put on my big girl panties and asked if two of them wanted to get lunch. They were like "OMG, YES! NO one in this office is social!"

So it turns out they were social people too and no one had bothered to say anything! Go me!

Last night the three of us had a happy hour (apparently the office's first in oh FOREVER) and five people showed up! And more people wanted to come but they weren't able. Yes! We new transfers will make the office social! We will united over cheap beers and nachos!

As an aside, my two new peeps are coming downtown for dinner with me and DH. Awesome. We have friends now!

It looks like it just needed someone to be the leader. Good for you for being the leader.
