- Wedding: December 2009
SOOO this is a vent post
I have worked for my company for 3 years and i have made a lot of close relationships. I just got engaged in july and im getting married next month on the 12th… we did not have a long engagement at all. Well, me and my fiance are having a tiny wedding, we had wanted to do less than 50 people (due to money and really we just wanted family and friends, not everyone we had EVER met)… well i only made 50 invitations and i gave them to everyone that i wanted to invite, EVERYONE. and then i was outta invitations and i have rsvps for about 75-80 people (people bring +1 and a lot of family IS coming in from out of town.) So i was fine with all this, me and my mom have everything all figured out.
Well, Yesterday i went into work and my coworker gave me his rsvp and had his invitation on his desk. Well i got his rsvp and went about my working and all that. A little while later he called me to his office and said, did you invite Mr. Boss, a boss above him… who is techniqually my boss, who i rarely ever see/talk to/never call on the weekend/DEFINATELY not considered a friend, did i invite THAT guy? I said, no, i didnt invite him, i ran out of invitations, and i didnt invite him. And well, guess what he told me after that?
He let me know that Mr. Boss came up to his desk, saw his invitation laying on the desk, and asked him where his (Mr. Boss’s) invitation was? Well my coworker told him i put his invitation in his box and it would be there. Can you beleive he did this? frankly, i know he is a man, but REALLY?
Thats not the worst part, he told me to take his invitation, givve it to Mr. Boss and invite ALL the managers at my work.. Hellllloooo there are like 6 managers at my work, and im only friends with 2 (BOth of which got their invite).
Am i wrong for only inviting people that i talk to on a daily basis to my wedding? Am i wrong for being mad that my BEAUTIFUL invitation, that took me 8 hours to make, got RETURNED to me to give to some guy who is weird and i dont even like (aka Mr Boss)? Am i wrong for being upset that random people are popping up in my email/facebook/myspace/text asking for their invitation?? I know i have worked at this place for 3 years, but Mr. Boss has only worked with me for about two years… he doesnt even know anything about me, my fiance… or ANYTHING. I am just so tired of people telling me how to plan my wedding and being rude, and asking for wedding invitations and putting me in a weird place when i have to say… “im having a small wedding and i cant really invite anyone else.”
Anyways, i hate my job, im looking for a new one after the new year. and This is just ridiculous. This coworker is my manager so im just really annoyed at his thinking… Sigh.
