My coworkers (who I’ve posted about before) have organized a happy hour after work tomorrow in my neighborhood and did not invite me. I only found out b/c I heard them talking about it (they didn’t know I was within ear shot).
I’ve come to terms with the fact that we aren’t friends outside of work a while ago. But this really stung for some reason, I mean, why not just invite me? I’m their age with similar interests and a totally normal person. And it’s in MY neighborhood!! I wish one of them would feel guilty or something and worry about hurting my feelings b/c it totally does! 🙁
Sorry, I am just venting and looking for sympathy 🙁

Eh, don’t worry about it. My coworkers do stuff all the time without me–BBQs, lunches, etc. I don’t usually get invited. Only on occassion when they think I hear them (I always do).
I figure this. We’re not friends, I don’t wanna hang out with them anyways, and I’ll spend my time with better people!
Maybe it’s not that they don’t like you…just that THEY are close friends.
If they DO happen to invite you, say you have something going on.
Work stuff is weird sometmes =

I’m sorry they didn’t invite you! That just seems so rude to not include you!

Ugh, I’m so sorry!
I’m kind of mean this way but if that happened to me I’d be tempted to crash it and then be the life of the party!
But the truth is, if they are THAT rude / inconsiderate, they are not worthy of your friendship, anyway.
Still, sorry it hurt your feelings.

Thanks laides! @ejs, you have a good point – I would rather spend my time with better people that it totally true!
I think it’s just plain rude to not invite me, clearly ALL of them are going or were at least invited and they are acting in a group mentality: None of them wants to create a rift being the 1st person to suggest inviting me, it’s like high school all over again. And even though I am catching a bus to PA right after work they don’t know that and it hurts my feelings to not even get an invitation.

You poor thing. I hate work cliques. If they’re talking about it at work,they shouldn’t be leaving work people out.
It’s totally their loss.
