We all conform to some extent. You ignore the homophobic jokes your supervisor makes, he watches the right shows to engage in conversation, she wears a skirt to work rather than her jeans. Nothing’s changed since high school; everybody’s looking for something to belong to. The problem is, there’s so little to choose from when you grow up that you end up belonging to something you don’t want to be a part of. I’m in that place now, the not belonging place, and I don’t know where to go to belong. Can’t go forward, can’t go back, that kind of situation. I fuck with the rules, I take the unspoken agreements that are the cement of our organization’s culture and bend them. Dresscode? Look, I’m presentable, aren’t I? Accountable hours? I’m doing my time, all right? The fact that you see me reading my comic book is compensation for all the overtime I used to put in. Overtime? Yeah, I’m not doing that anymore, either. It’s not in the contract. An attitude problem? Maybe that I have some left after so much time here. Did I happen to mention that I know where you live and that your home security is really out of date?
