    I am sorry about this. That really sucks!

    There is not much advice I can give but I can say you do have a right to be upset. I’d be upset too!

    @DesireeAnne: I was actually going to suggest doing that. That way they know that you would have liked to be part of the celebration.

    @HappilyEverAfter54: I agree!

    @DesireeAnne: I think that is really really sweet but on the other hand I wouldn’t go out of my way to do that because you’ll feel bad the 2nd time when she doesn’t appreciate the effort.  I’ve done the same thing before and I felt like it went unnoticed.

    That is horrible not to ask you.  Have you talked to the others who weren’t invited?

    Well I think if you want to give Trish a gift because you are happy for her, why not?

    Trish is not the one organizing the event and discluding you, right?

    Just because another coworker excluded you doesn’t mean Trish won’t appreciate your kind thoughts!

    I can see why you are bummed but I wouldn’t personally let it get to me.

    if you are new there, then its quite understandable that they just assume you dont feel close enough to her to come.. thats my guess anyway

    I wouldn’t ask someone to take the gift to the party. I would wait til the co-worker returned and give it to her then personally and wish her and the baby well.
