Do you ever feel like a ghost?

Asked by Dutchess_III (43576points) February 28th, 2013

You’re there. You can see them. They can’t see you.
Yesterday, at work, I found that I can go to Fluther and see what you all are doing…but I can’t log on (firewall.) So I sit there for a bit, watching what all my friends are saying. I can laugh or say “No!!” or think “GA!!!!” but beyond that there is nothing I can do but watch. The Underground Railroad thread was VERY interesting!

So. Come Monday, know that I may be lurking! :)

Yeah, i worked breifly in an office on the ground floor.
It had those windows that look like mirrors on the outside, but on the inside you can see through them.
I found myself just staring at people, without having to worry about them noticing me.

Some of the weirdest wanks I’ve ever had… Joking!

There’s software you can use to deghost yourself, if you want. But if they sweep the machines regularly, I wouldn’t use it.

Anyway, I’m sorry you have to work for a company that is so out of touch with reality. I don’t suppose there is any chance of finding work where you can be yourself, instead of a ghost?

@wundayatta No…I so understand why they would disallow social networking. Plenty of folks would play rather than work. I’m not one of them, but they have to assume the worst! I love my job.

When I am in a particularly retrospect sort of place I can move silently streamlessly and scare the shit out people when I open my mouth or touch them.

I learned how to do it a bit when I am not in that phase but it’s not as awesome.

It is detached stillness. Room temperature demeanor. Forget that I don’t really know what it is. But I think I missed my calling as a peeping tom.
