Back the eff off

I wish people could read the room and follow my lead. Instead, they push, tirelessly and relentlessly: asking for photos of my family life, asking for my social channel handles, asking for me to check something at my home for them, asking where my parents were from. These are virtual strangers or coworkers who I maintain strict boundaries with. I don’t ask anything about them. I am only here to pay the bills, do my workout at the gym, etc. Here for my reason only. Not here for you in any way:shape/form. They look and ask about the brand of food on my desk. I never even go to their desk and don’t care about any of their food/consumption pattern etc. I have zero interest in you and you pushing will not ever make me interested in you. Leave the hermit crabs alone, even if they’re forced to work at the same office address as you. I asked one of them, after they waited to leave the office at the same time as me, Why are you so interested in me? They finally got the hint. It’s weird how when you are not interested in people, how it brings out this crazed desperation in them.

How to tell everyone you’re a jerk! Just because other people are trying to be friendly doesn’t mean you should assume they want something from you. You sound like a total jerk who’s completely full of himself. Trust me kid, there’s going to come a time in your life where you will look back on this asshole attitude of yours and realize that you blew it badly. From one introvert to another I can tell you that it’s possible to be polite and friendly and respectful, not to mention appreciative of the fact that anyone cares enough about you to try, without selling out whatever it is you think you’re protecting. Get over yourself.

Dripping with condescension and self-importance

You sound like a washed-up, pretentious club DJ who's been asked to spin Rasputin one too many times.

Guess what? Last time I looked about 80% of job positions are not advertised,and filled by word of mouth, friends etc.

Good for you, how many better jobs have you missed out on?
