Oopsie

So, remember a little while back when I wrote a letter to my co-worker? If not, you can click here to read it. Said co-worker sits right next to me and on more than one ocassion has said a few "off colour" things to me.

Case in point, 2 weeks ago I was 15 minutes late for work (as a side note I am a very punctual person and am NEVER late)...a school bus got stuck in the snow and that delayed the bus I take to work every morning. When I walked into work this co-worker remarked "oh are you making your own hours these days?"...ummm excuse me??? It took everything in me not to tell her to go to...well you know where lol.

Anyways, I've shared a few of these comments with some of my friends and have inadvertantly formed a 'hate group' of sorts. I really didn't expect people to take sides in our 'war' and believe that she is a really nice woman outside of work so I don't wish her any harm or anything...I just needed to vent.

So, Imagine my shock when a girl I work with and consider a friend stood behind said co-worker the other day and was mocking her and making fun. I mean it was funny as heck...but still I feel bad for creating this nonsense.

I guess when I decided to become a legal secretary/assistant (which ever is politically correct these days) I should have taken into account the fact that almost all other assistants would be female and that makes for some serious cattiness.

The looming family visit starts tonight...I may not be much of a blogger until my chaotic household gets back to normal on Sunday...I hope you'll all miss me lots!

What a rude comment! That would have really upset me~ especially after reading about the way she acts at work! Cattiness never fails in a mostly female environment. Why can't we all just get along?! LOL Good luck with your family visit! They almost always turn out better than you think they will!

How funny! I'd feel badly too, but of course she did have it coming. I couldn't go to work and sit near someone like that all day.

Run her over on the stairs next time. :)

Coworker gets what she deserves! Haha. I don't like conflict either, but it's so funny to make fun of people sometimes.
