I am supposed to be going to a bbq at a co-workers new house tomorrow.

However, I really don't think I want to.

I am so tired of her childish behavior at work that I don't think I could spend a few hours at her home with her without saying something I might later regret.

Twice now this month we have invited her to lunch, each time she has at first said she didn't want to come then later changed her mind without informing anyone of her decision. The first time we asked her right before leaving and she said she'd come, when we got upstairs she stopped at a service advisors desk to make an appointment for her oil change. So we decided to continue walking and she could catch up with us. We cross the street and are ready to cross the next one to get to our parking lot and she comes out of the building..but instead of walking towards us she turned around in a huff and went and bought somethig from a vending machine, in the interim we have gotten in the car and called the main operator and are having her paged so she can meet us at the front of the building, she never responded. We get back and she rips into us for leaving us.

Well today she's asked in the morning to go with us, she says no thanks, then talks to someone else that was invited to go with us and decides to go, never telling the person that was driving that she wants to go, the guy that invited her calls her and tells her we are heading to the parking lot and to meet us...well turns out she feels we left her again even tho we waited while the guy went to find her.

I just can't handle it.. It's petty and ridiculous.

Anway thanks for letting me vent.

I try as much as possible not to do things that I truly don't want to do. (in regards to outings and get togethers)
I wouldn't go. I mean why bother really? I think the line has been drawn between acquaintances and friends.
Unless it's a free food and decent outing type thing.....I wouldn't go. (meaning a lot of your other friends or co-workers will be there and you can have a great time regardless of how she has behaved)
Personally, I think she has parking lot issues. ROFL

Sara,

*lmao*... one of the other girls from work to ask me for the directions.... I simply told her I wasn't feeling well..then she said she may not go either....which will mean that this lady will only have 2 guests at the bbq..so now I am starting to have second thoughts, because I really don't like anyone to feel like they aren't important enough or well liked enough or something, you know?

Then I keep wondering well what if both bosses back out as well..then that may have other repercussions (spelling?) as she hasn't been feeling very well-liked in the work environment....

I once went to a Candle Lite party and was the only guest to show. That was interesting. Not sure who felt more silly. Me or the girl hosting the party. lol

Sara,

*lol*.

I am 100% glad that I didn't go to this barbeque today.

AJ has been running a temp of about 101 since around 3pm.

I guess some things work out for the best...

Phaedrae, hope AJ is feeling better and I too have found myself glad that sometimes things do turn out for the best.:hugz:

What a goofy co-worker you have. I bet she is totally oblivious as to how wierd she is...:loop:
