We were joking around in a meeting today and I commented on something the CEO did that shocked me (jokingly--we were all laughing). I repeated it a few more times and one of the other co-workers said, "That's just her pregnancy hormones." I instantly became quiet and the meeting went on. I was livid that she, of all people, would say that. I felt that it was a really rude comment on her behalf. Believe it or not, would have said the exact same thing if I wasn't pregnant. I was angry because unlike a couple of the previous pregnant people, I am not using the pregnancy as an excuse for anything at this point. Thus far, the pregnancy has not interfered with work at all and I have not even missed work for appointments.
I signed on to Facebook tonight and someone had commented on her status (she had said she was annoyed), so that showed up on my screen--she had replied to her friend and said: I am so sick of working with people half my age that for whatever reason have no work ethics. Waaaa Waaa!
I have no idea who she is talking about--the majority of the office is younger than her, but she had better not be talking about me and my co-worker. My co-worker is planning 4 events at the same time, 2 of which are huge! I'm doing the graphic design and marketing for 3 of the events, some public relations, and coordinating 10 of our "clients" for the other event. The above comment is coming from someone who gets to the office between 9-9:30am and leaves by 3-3:30pm (granted, she does have kids and her husband travels about 9 months of the year, so she is essentially a single parent at that time, but when her husband is around she doesn't work normal hours). Throughout the day, she spends at least 20-30 minutes sitting in our office chatting while we are working. Yesterday she called me 3 times on my phone (I refused to answer). I knew she was looking for me, so I intentionally avoided walking by her office. She happened to catch me, and what she needed help with was printing a PowerPoint presentation. She didn't know how to do it and she couldn't even take the time to get up to walk to my office.
How annoying, Hope things get better with the girl at work..Its so hard to avoid someone when you have to work with them....BTDT. Keep your chin up and just ignore the ignorant comments about pregnancy (or speak your mind if you want...both work well).
If all else fails just laugh at her for being old and on Facebook.[/b]
LOL That is what one of my co-workers said last night!
I'm still not happy with her today...she called me this morning and I didn't answer--apparently she heard someone on the radio that she wanted me to hear. I'm so happy that I am working from home today because I do not want to face her--I don't dislike many people, and I have a hard time pretending that everything is ok.
