Office Hatred

We all have that coworker we can't stand. This hate/hate relationship has gone on for all of the 3 years I've worked with this woman. She's relentless. She makes personal calls on the company phone and drags everyone into her drama. She actually searches for computer problems so she can be the first person to announce it to me, while I sit here and pretend I give a s***.

Anyway, earlier this week her fridge died. She spent an entire day calling on her company phone to order a new fridge. Others in her department had to pick up after her slack.

She also eats food others bring, regardless of whether a name is on the food or not.

Well, today, I got bored and wanted coffee. I open the fridge to see a bottle of coffee creamer with her name on it. And it was freshly opened.

Yeah. Poured it down the sink. It's not much, but it's the knowledge I made her life a little less convenient will aid my sleep at night.

  • Agreed. I had an office manager/secretary many years ago who didn't like me because, unlike the last person who did my job, I gave her/secretary actual work to do. We went at it fairly often, both directly and passive-aggressive. I'd go in early sometimes, and she'd be at her desk, talking to her PR boyfriend, Julio, using the office phone for long distance. Whenever she'd hound me about work stuff, or any female in the building that I knew or talked to, I'd bring that up..Whoo (lio) are you talking about? Hey, who reviews the office phone bills? Think any of us do any business in Puerto Rico?

    If I made a joke that had people laughing, she'd ride it until people would tell her, stop..That's enough. Then she'd blame me.

    During one particular bad time with her, she made some comment and I said, hey, that's sexual harassment. The manager, who was a soft-spoken, never wanted to be a manager (he said so all the time) guy, took it very and extremely seriously. While I had no intent on going through with anything official, it did teach her a lesson that I meant business, and just deal with me for work stuff. No chatting, banter, jokes.. Just do the work I give you. Period.
