I completely understand and feel your pain! My coworkers are driving me insane too. I get the same questions every day and my favorite "how are you feeling? you look miserable!" well no **** sherlock! I am miserable! And today this woman came over to my desk and kept telling me all this negative stuff like dont do this and you're going to hate this and you're not going to sleep any and blah blah blah AND she kept calling my little man a "she" and "her" even though I've told her a million times that its a boy. They threw me a shower yesterday too and I had the blue balloons and one gift that I didnt get until today b/c the girl wasnt there which was all blue boy stuff right there too so why she decided it was a girl all the sudden I dont know. The shower was really sweet but she was REALLY annoying me today. I just wanted her to take her negative stupid butt back to her desk and let me do my work. When she finally left my boss (who sits in the cube behind me) says "wow... she was blunt wasnt she?". Her negativeness didnt really bother me so much as her calling my little boy a "she" and "her"... I dont know why but I didnt like it. I mean, I'm 9 months pregnant and she says something to me every single day so she KNOWS I'm having a boy! Okay, rant over... sorry for bogarting your post...
Funny you mention Marketing, though, b/c one of my degrees is in Marking Research.. I love Marketing.. one of my other degrees is in Statistics. I'd love love LOVE to be a Statistics professor.
My boss actually told a co-worker NOT to help me
And this was after HIS boss told him not to work me too hard..
