Endurance test.

There is a girl in work who I really don't get on with. Unfortunately we seem to have very similar hours and are often stuck together for hours on end.

I try to make small talk but she just ends up irritating me.

I think that we just dont 'get' each other. I certainly don't 'get' her sense of humour. It's just mean. She'll say something nasty and then when you take offense she says "it was a joke" like I'm an idiot for not being able to tell in the first place. But you see it doesn't sound like a joke. It never sounds like a joke. She's just not funny. Or pleasant.

I don't really like her and she doesn't like me.

Yet we spend hours together.

We endure each other.

Hopefully not for long.

Lol, just the one girl...

Hmmm, I have the same thing, but with four blokes that don'y really like me or each other...nice friendly working atmosphere...

I just turn the music up and get on with the job. :)
music keeps me sane.

We have no music in my work, or very nearly none. I wish we did, it would do wonders for my sanity. I spent 2 hours this morning wandering around my work stocking up singing Pearl Jam songs under my breath. Anyone within earshot must have thought I was mental.

"Jeremy spoke in claass toodayy, Jeremee spoke in claaass toodayy ...ooh ooooh oh oh oh oh!"

She's classic passive/aggressive. She reminds me of mostly everybody I've ever worked with.

It could just be me, of course.

Heather said...

You could be on to something there Wyndham. Although really I think she's just a bit of a shit.

Oh and welcome!

uurrgh working without music...that sucks.

So far have knocked up 32 mp3 cds with 8hrs on each with something for everyone on 'em.
That way it's more than a month before you hear the same old songs again, and we don't get bored of 'em.

Ugh, ugh, ugh!

My work colleagues may be cliquey, attention-seeking and annoying but at least they're not like that.

You have my sympathies.

Keep singing, it eases the pain. :)
