A/N: Double drabble.

Ianto sighed heavily, realising he hadn’t known what frustration was until he’d come to work for Torchwood Three. He’d been so naïve! Now he was dealing with people who’d apparently never learned to tidy up after themselves, didn’t get their reports written unless he nagged them constantly, even then usually handing them in late, and who were incapable of using spellcheck.

He frequently ended up having to rewrite everyone else’s work, except for Tosh’s. He supposed he should be thankful at least one member of the team was capable of doing their work efficiently and on time. Did they think he had nothing better to do?

It was a miracle he wasn’t bald considering that most days he got so frustrated with his colleagues he felt like tearing his hair out by the roots. Not that they’d even notice if he did, too wrapped up in their own little worlds.

He’d vaguely thought his life would be a bit easier with Lisa gone, but it wasn’t. Now he didn’t even have the distraction caring for her used to provide, or anyone he could complain to about work. He was drowning and no one cared about him enough to save him.

The End


OMG! I need to give Ianto a big hug; he really feels so unappreciated ...
Don't worry, Ianto, they will learn how smart and loveable you can be!
They will learn to love him soon, he's just feeling really bad right now.

Thank you!
the team do have many lessons to learn. they have a shock coming when they realise how Invaluable Ianto is
They will learn in time, once Ianto feels able to talk to them.

Thank you!

I'm sure that they too have other things on their minds which make them oblivious to the suffering of their coworkers.

Still, they should make an effort. Poor Ianto =(

Thank you!
