Kidding. Sort of.
A new gal started at my BFs work, and I didn’t meet her until she’d been there a few weeks. I think she might be a little bit older than myself, and is married.
She sits near my Boyfriend or Best Friend with 3 other people. I knew she knew I existed, based on conversations Boyfriend or Best Friend had mentioned having at work that involved me and his kids. He has said she seems friendly and is a good worker. Boyfriend or Best Friend has been with this company YEARS (I worked there at one point) so we know everyone well.
Well, I’ve finally met her. Sort of.
I showed up at my BFs work to surprise him during lunch, and when I strolled in she was standing near the front desk. I knew it had to be her, as I know every other employee there. I smiled and said “hi” and she just kind of looked at me and walked off.
Upon entering my BFs cube (those like 6ft tall ones), we started chatting and I saw her go back to her desk on the other side of the cube wall.
Boyfriend or Best Friend hopped up, stood at the opening by her desk and said “hey Carrie, come meet my girlfriend badabing88?”
He kind of gave me a funny look at repeated himself and I heard her go “hi” and stuck her hand over the top of the cubicle.
That was it.
A little put off at the introduction, I walked around to her side, stuck my hand out and said “hi, my name is badabing88. Nice to meet you.”
Would you belive this broad didn’t even stand up, or shake my hand sitting? She just looks at me and goes “you too.”
I guess she’s “friendly” to everyone but other females :-/

@badabing88: Talk about a warm reception :- Do you think she may feel threatened by you? You are gorgeous afterall. I’m not sure my theory would make any sense unless she happens to have a workplace crush on your man. Otherwise, why would she care how hot you are? That’s a really weird and unprofessional response that she gave you – permission to smack granted 😛

@MrsPanda99: LOL thanks. The crush thing crossed my mind, and I had a minor freakout with a fellow Bee I’m facebook friends with. She confirmed this girl could just be a jerk, as some women are sugar sweet to men but bitch-beasts to other females.

Um……rude. She might have a crush on him and be intimidated by you…..but that’s weird given that she’s married.

@badabing88: That’s true. I guess you would have to see how she interacts with other women in order to know if it’s a problem with you or a problem with anyone who has breasts. The only thing that triggered me thinking it was a crush was the fact that you said your man looked puzzled by her reaction – to me, that means it isn’t typical for her to be mean for no reason. Otherwise, I would have just assumed she was a grouch. There are plenty of those.

@icanhearyousmile: Well, I think we all know that being married doesn’t stop *some* people. I’m going to try to say this in the most humble way I think I can muster: if this were someone he was interested in, *his* loss 😡
@MrsPanda99: I actually mentioned that later. I said “I thought you said the new gal was nice” and he said “she usually is!” To which I replied “so you thought that reponse seemed odd?” and he said “yeah, that was weird.”

@badabing88: maybe she was just having a really bad day? Still no excuse to be that rude!! What did your bf say afterwards??

Urgh, what is wrong with some people? At least now both you and your Boyfriend or Best Friend know her true colors!!
Smack away! 🙂

@Spade504: He just looked kind of embarrassed, honestly. She couldn’t see me, but my mouth was kind of hanging open for a minute. Some people just aren’t raised right.
@Minnow: Your guess is as good as mine! I blame the parents.

@badabing88: Wow. I really do not get people like this. Why be so unnecessarily rude? But, I’ve also learned from experience that how a person behaves is 100% a reflection on them and has zero to do with me, personally.
If I were your Boyfriend or Best Friend, I’d make a mental note of her lack of maturity and character and base my future interactions with her on that information.
If I were you, I’d be polite but cool in any future interactions. I would not seek out her company but would reply if spoken too.

@badabing88: ….permission granted!
What the actual fuck is wrong with this woman?
*gets all childish & mad* Do not be the bigger person. Never ever acknowledge her existence again.
Hmph. That’ll teach her.

Wow, rude. Some people’s children.

She’s either a bitch, has a crush on your Boyfriend or Best Friend, or was having a really shitty day.

@Zhabeego: Great advice 🙂
@Mimoza: @memo: @vorpalette: I guess they are all working late tonight for end of month, and Boyfriend or Best Friend has already asked me if I’d come hang out up there with him. I’m going to lug along my stack of wedding magazines and maybe he and I can make a little (loud) progress during his down time 😉
