Okay so I’m annoyed right now, and probably shouldn’t be & just let it go, BUT…
I really find my coworkers comments about my wedding, or lack there of, annoying. Apparently I’m:
- not excited enough that I’m getting married
- weird because I’m not having a huge tradtional wedding with all the bells and whistles
- only been engaged for 6 months or so, and that’s “SO QUICK” to be getting married
- don’t have a “real engagement ring” so it doesn’t really count, and as one person put it “tell him he needs to put a ring on it”
I’m plenty excited and happy, I just want to be like I’ve been working here 3 months, I’m not going to divulge every detail of my life to you, I don’t know you. Get over it. Honestly the only reason they know is because I had to tell my boss so I could get the time off approved. Maybe there’s also tad bit of annoyance that they had lunch brought in today, and I didn’t know the occasion until someone said happy birthday to me. Um, my birthday was more than a week ago..
Sorry for the rant!

People can be annoying, but try not to let it get to you at work. I’ve noticed that a lot of comments like that in the workplace can stem from jealousy.

I’ve gotten a lot of the same comments and it’s sickening… really. It’s really no one’s business what you chose to do or not do for your wedding. I can only suggest to keep letting it roll off your back and know you’re totally ok for doing what you’re doing, anyone who judges you for it is just a meanie-faced-loser….

Everyone needs to rant sometimes, and to be honest, I agree with you for being annoyed. I always think that a wedding is whatever you want it to be, you can be traditional if you want or you can get married while bungee jumping. It doen’t matter, its your choice and no one else (except the person you’re marrying) has any right to tell you that you’re not doing it right.
I’m suprised about the 6 month comment, everyone around me is telling my that my engagement is too long (2 years)!

I didn’t opt for an enagement ring because I am horribly indecisive and also not a huge jewelry person, so I’m just trying to find a band that I love that will be able to stand alone. We’ve both been married before, so neither of us wanted a big to do. And six months seems like ages after living together almost 3 years. I should have just took a sick day and come back married. Haha! Man I could only imagine the comments had that happened!

I am with you on that in a way. I have no wedding band and have dealt with comments that we’re not really married. Good grief! lol.
Haters goin’ hate no matter what you do.
I second the sick day idea! Sounds fun to me 😀
