I work in a mostly female office environment. I have been here 20+ years....seen alot of people come and go. There is always that "one" person that creates total havoc on the rest of the workers. Today, was no exception. I try, not always succeeding, to keep my thought and words to myself. I have an amazing friend who teaches me on a daily basis that it is better to just keep things to yourself!!! But today, this "one" co-worker managed to leave two people out of a lunch (today is secretaries day, adminstrative assistant, whatever your chose to call it.) One of those left out was a fairly new employee and she was devasted. Why are people such A****?? Do they think people are so clueless that they won't notice? Really, people??
I felt really bad for that person and because of it, I chose not to attend the lunch. Simply explained, (because what I really wanted to say was not nice) "I have plans." I won't be a part of something so childish and immature.
One of my favorite characters and children's books are those of Dr. Seuss. Every book, quote, character, etc....says something. As I was feverishly working (I was reading other blogs) I ran across this quote:
"Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter, and those who matter don't mind."
— Dr. Seuss
— Dr. Seuss
To that "person"........you don't matter and I don't mind!!
