Do you HAVE to interact with her at work? I’d just put as much distance between her and myself as possible. If you do have to interact, I’d keep it strictly work topics. If she asks something about the wedding or your personal life, just say “Oh, we haven’t decided yet” or “I’m not sure” or something very non-specific. Then change the topic to something work related OR just be silent if that is acceptable.

Don’t say anything. That’s the most powerful weapon you have.

if you find she is harrassing you, go to HR.  your workplace should be a safe environment.

I’d trip her when she walked by 🙂 That’s how I’d handle that. Just ignore her, act as though she doesn’t exist.

What a b*tch!! I agree with PP, do you have to interact with her? Avoid her as much as possible! She sounds awful! Although I don’t know what the ages of you two have anything to do with. Is she in your department, can you make a complaint to the manager?

i agree with all the other posters. try to Ignore her as much as possible and only chat to her when you have to eg only about work things. if she ever asks you anything personal just say “i’d rather not discuss that thank you” and leave it at that.

just ignore her hun and im sure she will get the message that her comments are not welcome.

Wow. Who makes comments like that? She is definitely showing her class, or lack thereof.

I would not talk to her, and tell her quite plainly that she’s incredibly rude. You don’t have to be friends with your co workers.

@bouncybee:  First off, I am so sorry she’s making you feel bad about your ring. If you love it, that is all that matters. Next time she says something about it, just reply “well, I absolutely LOVE it. And my Fiance.” And then walk away.

I don’t think this is something HR is going to handle. Not to be rude, but this is a rather petty issue that likely pales in comparison to other things they deal with. So hold your chin up, and wear the heck out of that ring!

You don’t need to reply to her when she makes rude comments, by the way, you can simply smile and walk away, or explain that you have work to do. She’s just trying to make herself feel better by putting you (and your ring) down. How childish!

That is awful!  I can’t believe she would say those things to you!  Going along with the PP’s, just ignore her comments.  Everyone has their own idea of what an engagement ring and wedding should be, but it’s rather tacky to say that someone’s ideal wedding is more valid than someone else’s.  Just remember that every engagement ring, no matter the cost, means the same thing – that your SO wants to spend their life together with you.
