- Wedding: August 2012
I think the main issue is that I made assumption about common sense. Here is the situation.
There are people at my work that Fiance and I chose to invite to our wedding. They run in the same cultural circle as my family, therefore we often go over to have dinner at each others houses.
I assumed that by mailing their invitations and not handing them out at work, the hint would be given to keep my wedding out of work. …stupid me!
Ding-Dong Magoo YELLS at me down the hallway right after lunch yesterday, “Hey N! I got the invitation for your wedding! We’re coming!” You should have seen the number of heads that whipped around to look at me. I wanted to melt into the floor and dissappear.
I was so angry at him for a) talking about my wedding at work b) yelling at me in a hallway, I completely lost my cool. I turned around, looked him in the eyes and said very cooly, “F*ck off”
I know it was rude for me to react that way. I am not going to apologize because his general ignorance for me at work has reached a level that I really do not care for him to attend the wedding anymore. Working with him is like working with a goldfish with a 10 second memory. A lot of the time he just doesn’t get it, ends up wasting my time, asking the same thing over and over again and just generally causes me to lose my patience. Between all that and the RSVP shenanigans, I am done dealing with him.
To make it worse… they still haven’t RSVP’d on our website or by mail card. If he thinks his yelling RSVP is going to cut it, it’ll be a sad, sad day when he shows up and there is no chair for him or his wife to sit on.
Seriously…is this normal? Do other people deal with stuff like this at work?
