I swear, they can smell it on me

Maybe it's the hair? I kind of doubt that, since I've gotten this treatment even when I've looked the most like a young Republican. Coworkers just treat me like a leper. They give me a wide berth in the halls, and even act as if they haven't heard me when I attempt a friendly "good morning."

Mind you, not all of them are like this. It seems like the ones that are nearing retirement age, or the ones that dress a little less obsessively, and are clearly more invested in their families (or the degree they're working on) than the job are normally very friendly. But those young, driven ones; the ones who are "ambitious to get ahead". Those people know I don't share their values (and I use the term loosely.) I think they consider me and my ilk some kind of threat to their world domination plans.

I suppose it's possible that I really smell, but I have it on pretty good authority that I don't.
