Almost done

So, I'm having an entertaining last couple of weeks at work. People say strange things at the best of times, but leaving them forever doesn't help.

Coworker: I'm going to miss you, even though you're rude.
I (thinking, You should know about being rude after that!): Okay.
Various coworkers: Are you getting excited?
I: No, I've been excited for about six months.
Various coworkers: So, do you have everything packed?
I: No, we still have to live in our house.
VCs: Oh, yeah.
Coworker: Are you getting excited?
I (sighing): Yes.
C: Are you going to miss everybody?
I: Mehhhh...
C: You're supposed to say yes!
I: I don't do a lot of things I'm supposed to do. (thinking, Why ask if you already knew the answer you wanted to hear?)
Coworker: What are we going to do without you?
I: You'll live.
C: We might not!
I: Then you'll have a funeral.
Coworker: I'm going to cry on your last day.
I: Oh, that's really sweet! I'm not going to cry.
Another coworker: Why not?
I: confused stare
AC: You aren't going to cry on your last day?
I: No. (still confused)
AC: Aren't you going to miss us?
I: Yeah, but you aren't dying.

So, the end of the story is, my coworkers will probably be better off without their daily dose of snark. But I bet it's lot more boring.

These people in the south either have strange attachment issues, or... they've learned to fake it really well and act strange when you don't reciprocate.
