Office space 1

September 25, 2007 at 10:18 am (annoying, colleagues and friends)

There’s a woman in my office who drives me nuts. She’s got that whole passive-aggressive thing down to a bloody fine art.

I don’t know why she feels the need to get on my nerves but she does. Not only does she have an irritating way of creeping up on a person, she has a snippy comment for everything. It’s not even so much what she says (ok, maybe it is) but also the way in which she says it. What have I done to her to make her hate me so?

For example, I got a lovely new desk which happened to be bigger than the normal desks. I hadn’t asked for it but was delighted with it anyway. And nobody really noticed how big it is until I turned it around and revealed its size.

Anyway, Madam comes in and makes a remark about me having such a big desk moments after I heard I had to move again, leaving the desk to someone else. I told her I’d be losing the desk and every single opportunity after that she’d come in to ask if I still had the desk.

Hello, of course I still have the desk if I’m sitting behind the goddamn thing!

I’ve decided to not let her get to me. I just wish she’d stay out of my way as I actively try to stay out of hers. It’s not even as if I disliked her from the word go – it’s just the more she said the more she irritated me.

I want her to leave me alone.

    Try hiding her stationary when she isn’t around. It’s worth staying late for just to see the frustration on their face the next day.


    I like getting back in small passive agressive ways …

    DMM, I like the way you think!
    Kash…my next post was going to be about that very thing – taking chairs. Someone took mine a few days ago and I nearly burst a friggin blood vessel. It drove me NUTS; I was ready to kill someone, I swear…

  4. The Divine Miss M said,

    I hate it when that happens, especially when you’ve molded that chair to your specific wants and desires and then some fuckwit comes and steals it 😦

    I wonder why I don’t go postal at work …

    I often wonder the same thing DMM. I’ve now written my name on my chair. And beware the bastard who even tries to take it…

  6. The Divine Miss M said,

    I did that with all my stationary at one point and then when I came to work in the mornings and anything was missing I’d walk around all the desks and pointedly take back my stationary whilst mumbling about thieving bastards.

    Sometimes I wonder how I STILL have a job …

  7. Toby Hanks said,

    Hee, hee. I can picture doing it myself. Did you ever find any of the stuff. And if you did, what did you say to the thieving bastard?
