what's the etiquette?
put your iPod in...?
don't get horny
No eye contact or the problems shared with you.
asking if they are okay or a pity smile / arm round shoulder is acceptable.
explain that you thought she was making eyes at you.
someone was a bit rude to her on the phone.
If it was for personal reasons maybe offer a shoulder. As it is though she needs to MTFU
as that was my initial reaction. She's like a grown woman and stuff.
Maybe she's on that there period thing that I hear girls can have from time to time.
woah, woah, abandon reply. i mean to say, ask them "Er... is everything allrght?"
I think there might be an underlying issue.
probably her being upset that caused the tears.
she burst into tears after someone was a bit rude on the phone. I would hope that that wasn't the sole cause of the waterworks. If it is, she needs a different job.
If they're trying to hide it then ignore it. If they're doing it to manipulate you into getting what they want then don't give into it.
...Does this often happen to you where you work?
or ignore it.
And earlier on in the thread you called her a cunt, I'm pretty sure of it.
I hate people doing this
Wait for a woman to handle it
Pregnant Woman was crying because of yet another argument with her knob of a boyfriend.
give em a hug. i did this when i worked in the pub a few times after customers were nasty to one of the barmaids, and once to one of my managers in work who looked quite sad and looked like she was crying before i came in.
some people arn't like that though so at the very least ask if they're alright sympathetically and try not to stare or make the situation bigger than it is by talking to all your other colleges going "oh them over there was crying earlier, omg" etc.
I've just sent an email round telling everyone.
and sing the "arr AAAAAAh-AAAAAAAHHHHH" bit from Earth Song as loud as you can while maintining constant eye contact.
grab a piece of paper, walk towards them, tell them you're running the London marathon and looking for sponsorship.
pass them a tissue.
