Eek here she come's...
lets just say she don't ever eat the salad.
that's a start.
partridge. good work.
and stop being such a knob?
people are such cunts on this board.
the newbie office person!
the majority of people on here seem quite nice.
you're a fucking cunt
what she said
Nobody should be ostracising new people and not giving them a chance but I can certainly think of times in the past where I've been civil to someone and ended up with a "new best friend" I become quite desperate to avoid.
So I think one should be friendly but set some sort of boundary.
Maybe she doesn’t want to eat lunch with you anyway? I’m fairly new at my team in work and i’m sick of having to make excuses/lies about why i don’t want to eat lunch with them or go for coffee with them or go to the christmas meal with them.
I ate lunch in a cupboard for the first year I was at my job, just to avoid such people. I just wanted to read without hearing "ooh, a book, what are you reading, aren't you clever?".
One guy actually said to me "you do too much reading, it's not healthy!" :(
masturbating over jazz mags confused.
i just want to spend time on my own with a book and will pay for coffee just so that i can go and sit and relax in a cafe rather than in the office lunch room where i'd be obliged to make laboured small talk with people i have nothing in common with and can't be bothered to try to make friends with seeing as i'm leaving in a week anyway...
But hey, he should make the new person feel welcome, it is christmas after all
as someone from work has added me, she has stated that she would not feel under obligation and would ignore their request! Ha see
but make sense this time?
in other words she would happily reject the addition of friends from work on facebook, with out a thought..seeing as some people thought I was being a meany pants for not particularly wanting to spend my valuable lunch break with her
.. Got it?
Is that mean? Maybe. Oh well.
I do not condone his original post, however.
The deal is: you're not so mean for wanting to avoid her at lunch time because she would ignore a friend request from a colleague on facebook.
Is that it?
-bleak. i'm bored of it now she's actually quite alright, just alot younger than me so you really notice the difference in conversation.
For that i'll post alot!
It's like a heavy mantle on my shoulders
sorry. I'm just feeling bored and irritable. this office is too hot. carry on as you were.
but there is often a theory to my madness! joey.
Some HR person who really could make my life difficult added me on facebook, I was tempted to ignore but added. She however would not have this indecision.
she would prob still tag along..Oh also the bit about about not making sense when I post i'm multi tasking, trying not to look like i'm in a forum doing sweet F.A!
