- Wedding: January 2013
why do I have to be the point of contact for every single extra thing at work? If there is a party that needs planning then somehow it’s my job. I thought maybe it was because I was the newest person, but we have a new guy and he doesn’t get tapped to do anything. I’m starting to think that it’s because I’m the only woman in the office.
My issue right now is that the office sponsors a needy child for Christmas every year. I think that’s great. But why would you choose the only person in the office who doesn’t have kids yet (currently pregnant) to go shopping on Black Friday for a three year old. I know nothing about kids’ clothes and I sure as hell don’t want to get out in the madness that is the day after Thanksgiving. Plus, I’ve already spent $50 more than I am comfortable with for this and I’m not even done yet. Everyone else in the office has donated $15-20 and I’ve spent that plus $75 of my own money. I have a wedding to pay for, a baby on the way, and shopping for my own family. This sucks.
