Ignore this. I'm venting.

Okay, I rarely bitch. Right? Well, right. I'm not out to gripe and moan about my life and job, because both are pretty good. And even when I don't connect, the love life thing is okay. And I enjoy my on line stuff, the lists I belong to and all.

So, all in all, everything's cool.

But I just have to say something about this situation at work right now. This woman is definitely out to get me, or she just loves rubbing my nose in it. And I'm starting to take her crap far too personally.

Sometimes you want to complain about someone, but you just can't. You have to suck it up, even when you know you have a right to do more. This woman doesn't have the position I have, the responsibility or the ear of the boss. Maybe it's her very powerlessness that makes her attack me in small ways. (Okay, I could just say she's jealous, but that sounds a little too high school.)

I like to think I don't sweat the small stuff, as the saying goes. But actually, it's the small stuff that gets to me. Big issues don't really phase me. This Chinese Water Torture thing of little digs every single day is wearing. And my big smile is starting to look a little strained.

Today I just looked at her and said, "Enough, Elaine." And even though I was still smiling as I said it, my eyes weren't.

And she shut up.

We'll see if it lasts.

I'm so sorry to hear this, dearheart.

I hope things improve. I realize you're the easy-going type, but I think you were quite right to put her in her place. Continue doing so!

Are you watching and enjoying "Cupid"? It's quite entertaining...

That sucks!

I've been there with some 'issues' with people in the workplace. And I'm always trying to be 'nice' and let it go...

Sometimes you do have to take a stand, though.

Isn't it interesting how envious people can be if they think you've got an 'in' with the boss? I just don't get it. I mean, they, too, could work harder and whatev!

Anyway, don't let it bug you too much. It's part of the joy of working! LMAO. Right.
