Tired of Drama

Dude work drama is so annoying. You say the wrong thing, no wait, you say something and then someone misconstrues it then all of a sudden YOU are the bad guy when in reality you did nothing wrong. It’s days like yesterday that make me not want to talk to anyone and ask for my own office. I share a large cubicle area with four other girls, I really have no problem with any of them besides the fact they talk a LOT. I just listen to my radio and go on my way and do my work and stay out of things. But all of a sudden I ask my friend at work, hey what happened with this? And I accidentally upset my friend, I apologized to her and said I didn’t mean to upset you, and she apologized to me saying that she shouldn’t have gotten so upset over nothing. So her and I, we thought everything was over, little did we know someone ran over to the other party that was technically “involved” (I asked a question about a conversation we had earlier between the three of us) and told her OUR conversation.

Friday I was gone so APPARENTLY this person came to my friend and was like wtf is going on yada yada we aren’t supposed to talk about each other behind our backs yada yada. My friend just was like whatever I’m sorry it’s all a misunderstanding. Then on Monday I hadn’t seen my friend and this other person came up to me and was talking to me about it- and I was like okay you are over-reacting- it was nothing but a question, in no way, shape, or form, was I trying to start drama- specially when I stay out of EVERYTHING that goes on here. I was like I already apologized to my friend… and this girl was like well you didn’t apologize to me, Dr. So and So said we shouldn’t act like this (yes our section has so many RIDICULOUS issues that a doctor came in and spoke to all of us). I just looked at her and said in a flat tone “I’m sorry.” Totally didn’t mean it- she probably knows it. It’s just one of those things where you want the issue to go away so you just say sorry so it’s over (now I understand men lol).

But THEN- here’s the clincher I said “how on earth do you know what S and I spoke about anyways?” And she was like oh uh well someone told me. And I was like “well you tell THAT someone that they shouldn’t be running around making gossip when all I did was ask a question.” I’m guessing that person ran off BEFORE S and I were done with our conversation.

I KNOW who it was- this person is a lapdog- just can’t wait to run over to tell people stuff- only thing was we didn’t realize he was there- we saw him but didn’t think of it. I told my friend S that I’m not saying anything to her anymore unless we are ALONE lol. She agrees. Personally her and I are OVER the drama.

Anyways, eating yesterday was pretty good- hubby forgot the chocolate cake! I was like NOOOO lol. I’m afraid of it- my sister ate a few bites, said it was good, but it’s STILL IN THE FRIDGE! DUN DUN DUN!!! Hopefully hubby remembers it today.

I made jerk chicken with black beans for dinner last night. I’d also made a salad but didn’t eat it (well I ate the three pickles I had put on the side)- my sister took it from me- I don’t know I just didn’t want food. Then later of course I got hungry so I had a la tortilla with some hummus. I know I’m weak :p I like the la tortilla bread OKAY!

Then I pulled out all my practice crochet stitches so that I could start an actual project today at work, it’ll be something small, like a coaster or something lol. Just to get things down :)

Hubby and I spent some time together last night- just talking, and lucky me he gave me a massage- oh YEAH! I was putty in his hands after that lol ;)

    And that, right there, is why I’m glad my office is filled mainly with guys. Annoying in the fact that my work day is the equivalent of raising teenagers, but gossip free none the less!

    I work for a software company so it’s mostly guys, but the few WOMEN that work here are the worst gossips! People wonder why I’m so happy working in the development department.. it’s because it’s all men and they don’t give a rat’s booty about drama and gossip!

    Hope you have a drama-free day.. LOL!

    Hey, I once worked for a school district office, and one of the top admins actually committed suicide over office shit. I know how that stuff goes. Man oh man!

    OMG girl you serious? Now I’d never do that- at the end of the day I still have my family and friends outside work!

    I swear one of the girl’s at work rarely speaks to anyone, just does her work, eats lunch alone, and just stays out of everything- SHE is smart. I should be like her lol.

    BOO for the office drama. You are better than that. It makes me thankful for my boring office. ;)

    I’m on a mission to find LaTortillas in my area and eventually I will try hummus…

    I am really glad I work alone here and only have to deal with the drams via email! Poor thing!

    I love those la tortillas. I am so excited that I can now get BIG packs at Costco!

    Sorry you had to deal with that drama. I had a lot of that going on earlier this year and I’m sooo happy it’s mostly stopped.

    Congrats on your loss!

    Re the caf not allowing outside foods - I do buy a cup of ice water so I’m technically buying something.

    It’s okay- everyone seems FINE today- but you never know- hence why I TRY to stay out of things lol. TRY being the key word!

    The secretary in my office LOVES to stir up drama. She’s one who acts like your best friend to your face and then tells everyone else how much she hates you. She twists stories to intentionally start stuff and then sits back and watches the fireworks. We’ve all finally gotten wise, and it doesn’t work (mostly) anymore. But man, she has caused some major problems in the past. I hate being in that kind of work environment!!

    I kid not, Bee. She actually put a shotgun to her mouth. :(
