I'm bored with my job. It's summer and I just want to go to the beach. Do you have any creative suggestions about how I can get people to stop expecting anything of me? I've considered just wearing the same outfit every day so that by the end of the week people will avoid me because of the smell... Do you think that would work?

Dear Uncivilized Servant,
I find that you are a person who likes himself (or herself) very little or not at all. If you keep up these ideas of being smelly then you will stay smelly and you won't have to worry about people not being near you.
If you feel you must go to the beach on a working day then take one of your vacation days and go. Then you will feel better, or guilty for not being at work. But console yourself - you had been given vacation time. Now maybe you will get back to work -- "gung ho".
I think it is time to get hold of yourself and a good way to do it is to look into a mirror and tell yourself it is time to grow up and join the world. Smile, smile, and take that shower.
