Stuck at some dumb company event where attendance is mandatory. I'm supposed to answer technical questions if needed, but I suck at socializing with customers, and the sales guys are already chatting people up about the products I've developed so I don't have anything left to talk about. Not that anyone asks much about the tech behind the shiny GUI anyway...

Should i just leave? I doubt anyone would notice...

    Hang in there. Even if you don't socialize. Otherwise it will come back to you later.

    It's just knowing that I have to stick around all these social monkeys (not fair, nor nice, I know - just the somewhat cranky mood I'm in) when I could be coding instead! I could be useful instead of wasting so much time..

    (And even though I know it's normal, it's kinda sad watching sales take credit for the products all the time.)

    We had one of those a few weeks back. I have a collegue at the technical department who does all the talking (and he even likes it) and i could just carry on programming for the most part :)
