Well…..back in January I screwed up and turned a bag of M&M’s into a effin’ olive branch. I was really tired of dealing with the energy draining stress of despising this person, so I made a peace offering. My intention was to just ease tensions to a bit more tolerable level….
Worked. Effin’ worked too much….
Now she thinks I’m her new BFF…I don’t wanna be her BFF, her BF, or even just her F. I just want to be her polite and civil co-worker who exchanges the occasional pleasantry. Period.
But NOOOOOOoooooo…..She camps out by my cubicle regaling me with the antics of her children, her husband, her dog, her girl scout troop, her neighbors, her Mother, her other BFFs, and her Godforsaken in-laws. Not to mention her co-workers from her 2nd job and her mailman. Also, the color, consistency, frequency of her poop.
She hangs on my every word. She comments on every statement I make to others that has nothing to do with her whatsoever. She comments on my phone conversations, even the personal ones. (Note to self, have those on cell phone in the warehouse, out of earshot) She offers advice, wisdom, opinions on said conversations…..
She thinks she’s being helpful. I really don’t think she realizes just how incredibly annoying her behavior is, she’s that clueless. So, am I just a big ol’ Jumbo Bitch for kinda wishing we were back to not speaking???
I am huh? You can say it….
Jeepers creepers, why can’t there be a happy medium?? Does anyone have any suggestions for encouraging her to respect some boundaries for crying out loud? Anyone?
If I actually had a full 8 hours worth of work to do on any given day, she would seriously be keeping me from getting it done, she spends that much time yakking at me incessantly. And she’s loud so there’s no way to play the “I’m pretending I didn’t hear you but really I’m ignoring you” card. My only escape is to put my earbuds in and crank up the ipod, which is bad because then I can’t always hear my phone ring…
I don’t need a TarBaby, a stuck to me like glue dang TarBaby….
Any and all suggestions will be given serious consideration.
Even the stabbity psycho ones. Or the ones involving super glue followed by duct tape….
