- Wedding: November 2009
Seriously, they do. And I have NO idea why, either. I’m nice to everybody. I don’t walk around with a cheese eating grin on my face all day long (usually I’m in far away land….before the wedding, I was always thinking of that, and before and after that, usually thinking of school or something I have to do, etc) but I’m polite to everyone and have conversations with quite a few people, including other women. For the record, I’ve worked here for two and a half years.
But none of them like me. Most are polite, some (like the chick in my dept) are outright RUDE to me… she seriously hates me. The others don’t include me in anything, like today, for instance. One of the admins had a birthday over the weekend. I talked to her for about 30 minutes on Monday, telling her happy birthday and she showed me the pics from her bday party which included about half of our office. I wasn’t invited to the party. Okay, fine, that’s no big deal… it wasn’t during working hours. Then today, they all went to lunch for her birthday. No one invited me. They never do! I’m always excluded. I really, honestly, don’t understand this. The only thing I can think that is different is that I’m the only one in my 30’s. There is one girl who is 20, and they include her (her mother also works here) and everyone else is in their 40’s and up.
Yesterday, someone mentioned the cake that the birthday girl had gotten, and I kind of jokingly said, “man, there was cake? Dang!” and laughed (because of course, no one included me in that either) and she was like, didn’t so and so bring you any and I said no, she would never do that. She asked why, and I said, well, it’s pretty obvious she doesn’t like me and another admin near by said, no comment! And walked off. WTF? For the record, no one even acknowledged my birthday (our office manager puts a “Happy Birthday” sign on everyone’s door when it’s their birthday, so it’s not like anyone didn’t know).
Why are some women so weird? Everywhere else I’ve ever worked, I’ve always been very involved with my coworkers, and am still very good friends with many of them from past jobs. Here? I’m tolerated, I guess. I know it’s silly and I should just be like, whatever… but it still really hurts my feelings because I just don’t understand what their problem with me is! 🙁
Okay, I’m finished feeling sorry for myself. :/
