I’m having a big huffter so I thought I’d share it with DiS at large. Why, I dunno.
There’s a guy at my work who I sit beside and he used to be really cool. He’s part of my friendship group at work but recently he’s got a new role and has become a wee bit “Mr Big Shot”. He’s started to call me “mate” rather a lot and it grates, especially as he blew the whistle on my internet (DiS) usage at work last week to the extent everyone now comes up to me and goes “Drowned in Sound, eh?”.
The person that he blew the whistle on me to is very close to my boss and also happens to be his bird. While she is very nice and made the issue go no further I can’t help finding now that I want to stab him in the face with a pencil lots.
The other thing that’s grating the tits off me is that he’s always over at her desk chatting and he’s always banging on about how great their relationship is. There’s constant feeds on Facebook of him putting gormless pics up of him and his lass and he’s always chuntering on about booking holidays for the pair of them and saying what a great relationship he’s in and how he’s “waited all his life for someone like her”.
I may be slightly envious of his supposed endless wealth, rakes of holidays, and “great relationship”, but the thing that grates me the most is that he’s always sauntering over to her desk and he seems to think they’re the Brad and Angelina of my office. I know that if I spent all day IMing my other half, I’d be hammered. Factor in that they are always going out for 2 hour lunches together I’m starting to feel slightly resentful.
Am I a cunt or am I justified in feeling this way? I know this is all very emo but I’m trying to gauge where I fall on the exponential curve between “Wizened” and “Justified”.
