Today at work I was holding something and looking down, and I hear "Hi, Jennifer! How are you doing today?" So I look up and wave, saying I'm great, how are you? Then I realize I don't know this person. That's okay, though.

Our setup is so that you have to move down a line, and all the way down the line, the guy is saying things like, "I love Jennifer. She is my favorite employee." "Jennifer does the best job." "Jennifer is always so friendly." When he finally reaches ME, I give him his order and wrap everything up. "Jennifer, thank you so much. You have an excellent day!" I was thinking to myself that he was creeping me out, and he clearly doesn't know me, or he would know that everyone calls me Jenn. But I wished him a nice day and thanked him.

I looked out in the lobby and he was just STARING at me. Every time I looked up, he was there. He came back later to say goodbye.

He was mentally measuring me to make a skin suit out of me, right?

If not, and he was just being friendly...a different question. I was diagnosed with carpal tunnel syndrome in both arms. I have to wear braces, and in 3 weeks I'll be evaluated to see if I need surgery. Because I have no chance to rest my wrists like I'm supposed to, how likely is it that I'll end up having surgery? Have you had that type of surgery? If I do have surgery, it would be ridiculous to return to the same job that gave me the injury in the first place, right?
