I just had my office nemesis come over to my desk and start asking me about the wedding, at which point she proceeds to bash everything to my face. Keep in mind this woman is in her forties, has never been married or been in a serious relationship, and has an internet boyfriend who she met in Second Life and who lives with his mother in England. It went a little something like this:
Her: “Ohhh, so you’re like having one of those huge Saturday weddings that are like hours long? You do know Sunday is cheaper, right?”
Me: “Umm it’s 150 people – not that big. And Sunday doesn’t work for us cause we I have mostly OOT friends.”
Her: “Ugh GAWD I’ve been to so many of those over the years. Such a waste of money. Especially in this economy. I don’t get it – it’s one day. Why do people make a big deal out of it? If it was me getting married, I’d want a very small wedding on the cheap because I don’t care about all that Princess s**t.”
Me: [long awkward pause] “Well, uhh, I guess everyone is different.”
I should have said: “Well good thing you’ll never have to worry about wasting your money on a wedding because no one in their right mind would ever f**king marry you because you’re insufferable and the only reason you have a BF is because he lives across an OCEAN from you and doesn’t have to touch you. PS – Go wax your upper lip because when you talk all I see is your mustache.”

That’s a great hypothetical response! I actually feel kind of bad for her…sounds like her life sucks and she is insanely jealous of your amazing Saturday night wedding. Try not to hate her too much 🙂

Don’t let her get to you! She probably just wishes she was getting married too (which is why you got an earful about what *she* would do). Just avoid talking to her about your wedding and don’t let her ruin your day!

LOL at your hypothetical response. That SUCKS. Two of my coworkers are exactly like that. I had to do as sd2009 suggested and completely stop talking to them about my wedding plans! Hang in there!

- Wedding: June 2010 - Indiana Memorial Union
This is why I don’t talk to my coworkers. I don’t even think half of them know I’m engaged 🙂

That must be annoying as [email protected], but I love that I got to read your rant. I know exactly who you are talking about, her sad little archetype is everywhere.

“Oh, we already checked with all of the guests we are inviting and they are fine with the Saturday wedding”. Read: YOU AREN’T INVITED!!!

Is this the same co-worker that has virtual cat sex on Second Life? That’s one of my favorite terrible co-worker stories of all time! She sounds crazy anyway; I wouldn’t hold too much stock in her opions about weddings.

Haha nice mental quip there! I can’t believe how people can be so nasty. I isn’t her wedding and most people like going to weddings even though the economy isn’t doing well because it’s something fun and helps take your mind off it!

The thing that kills me is that I go out of my way NOT to talk to her but she occasionally will corner me and start babbling. I never talk about wedding stuff at work except to my one office friend who I don’t even directly work with, and never IN the office. Only at lunch and stuff.
@GirlWithARing – I used to feel bad for her because she is the most pathetic person I’ve ever met, but she’s one of those people that is just so awful that you reach a point where you no can no longer feel bad for her because she’s just a nightmare.

@Mrs. Spring – YES she is the virtual cat sex woman! And this BF is her cat partner. I should have suggested she have a virtual cat wedding…

“I don’t go in for that princess s***.”
“I can tell. Princesses usually have good manners.”
Second Life? Really? Yikes…
