I just re-read your post.
You know what, Matt - you don't need to try to be a star at work. Maybe you can try to relax a bit about this. You can take pride in doing your job & doing it well FOR YOU...not for ANYbody else. You can be pleasant, but NOT feel that you have to impress others.
You're a nice person. Maybe the people at your work aren't all that nice! If they say that appliances thing, that's not really very nice, even fooling around. Who needs people like that for friends???
I know we spend a lot of time with the people we work with. But maybe they aren't the best people to try to have as friends. Maybe they're so involved in trying to appear cool & are so involved in thinking about themselves, that they aren't really kind to other people.
I wonder about getting involved in other activities. Do you have a hobby or interest?
Sometimes volunteer activities are a good place to meet people. I think that people who would volunteer would be likely to be kind people. Also volunteering might help you feel good about yourself in a low-pressure way. I dunno - it's just a thought.
