omg lol that’s so weird! I don’t really have any advice though, I have no clue what I’d do if that was happenig to me. I guess you could go to HR or her boss, but I would hate to start trouble over something relatively innocent, though still awkward!

@MrsD41503:  Do you have HR to go to? Because being so direct really should make her stop if it’s annoying you so much. The fact that it’s distracting and taking you away from work should make her stop immediately, but obviously that hasn’t gotten to her head no matter how many times you tell her.

@MrsD41503:  It sounds like she is doing it because she knows it bothers you. She might just be that kind of person. My mom does that. If you tell her to stop, she will just keep doing it because she knows it bothers (she will only do it to us, not in a professional setting).

I have no clue what to do except to tell her again and then go to HR. It would suck having to go to someone for such a small thing, but honestly if it disrupts your work, what can you do? I would just say, “Jane, I have asked you nicely to stop several times, and you continue to ignore it. You are being very disruptive, and I am not ok with that.”

Oh my god, this seems like a skit from The Office, Parks & Rec or Workaholics. Like a female version of Michael Scott.  It made me giggle – I’m sorry! I know it’s making you miserable, haha.

Unfortunately, I don’t think there’s much you can do.  Going to HR (if you’re in a big company) is not something I wouldl do since technically, she’s being fairly harmless.  Her being annoying is something you just have to put up with, especially since she’s your boss :/

@MrsD41503:  Do you work for Michael Scott in drag? Thats the only explanation I have! I’m sorry, I’m laughing as I type this.

Edit: I see other posters have made the same connection. Hahaha. Just keep telling her ‘no’. If it really bugs you, record all the incidences of it and take it to HR, if you have one. That is probably all you can do.

Can you shoot her with a water gun or something? LOL. I have no real suggestions because I can’t wrap my head around the fact that this is actually a problem you have to deal with, crazy!

@MrsD41503:  Unfortunately, it appears it’s one of those things you might just have to keep insisting on until she leaves it alone. Annoying? Yes. Against the rules? Doubtful. 

 

She sounds to me like one of those people who needs to be told over and over again to stop doing something. I’m sorry :/
