How to NOT make friends at work in Beirut (or anywhere for that matter)

So, it is my fourth week of work in Beirut, and I’m adjusting to 1. working 2. working in an office 3. working in an office in Beirut!  So, please forgive me if I didn’t know that everyone is supposed to bring their own mugs!  No wonder I haven’t made any friends, I’ve been stealing their mugs for the past three weeks!

Stupid. Stupid. Stupid.

    hey look at the bright side. if you manage to get away with drinking out of everybody else’s mugs and still get treated for lunch everyday, u must be doing something right.
