I do not thrive on chaos. I prefer to leave the drama to my mama, and while I don't have any fear of confrontation, I also don't seek it out unless there's a compelling moral issue. There is a bit of controversy at my place of work right now, and my coworker is busily fanning the proverbial flames and stirring the proverbial pot. She has been at my desk no fewer than 20 times today (I so wish that this was an exaggeration; alas, it is not), and I finally had to tell her (firmly but politely, of course) that I do not want to hear any more comments or updates regarding said controversy unless such comments or updates require immediate action from me.
I'm going home now. My head hurts.
