    Over the course of two years I've worked my way up from a dishwasher to a prep cook in the restaurant I work in. One of my coworkers was at some point my close friend and was the one who convinced me to ask about switching positions in the first place. After a spiraling downfall of her coming in in one bad mood after another and taking it out on me, I had had enough and I spoke to my boss about the condescending disrescpet I was greeted with every evening. He had a talk with her and now she has not spoken to me in months. She will not communicate with me for work purposes, she rolls her eyes and scoffs at me whenever I walk by her or I'm within he right, she has attempted to hit me by kicking trash cans in my direction as I'm walking down the hall, she's even referred to me as "f*cking idiot" when I accidentally hit her with the revolving restaurant doors as she was walking in and I was walking out. I will be the first to admit that I am sensitive and I hate confrontation. I have tried to be very passive about the whole situation. I still try to treat her with the same respect and fairness that I give to my coworkers, but she's really starting to wear me down.

  • Is it appropriate to have my pajamas on when I have company over?

    I know it is inappropriate if I wore my underwear or if I was naked when I had guests over but what if I am in my pajamas and just getting out of bed and have my pajamas on while meeting with a client or having company over whether they are my friends or not. Is this appropriate

  • Why do some drs and nurses have such bad people skills and are rude?

    Best answer: Because they are human beings. There are a whole host of reasons why a doctor or nurse may be in a bad mood. Like everyone else they, too, can find it challenging to paint a smile on their faces and be polite with everyone. Try politely challenging it. Do not accept it and ask why they are being rude to you.

  • If you made an effort & sent your sister who lives interstate.. a birthday card & small gift on her b’day in Jan & she just sent you a card?

    Best answer: There could be a hundred reasons for this. She might be broke. She might not know what to get you. She might be overwhelmed, or depressed, or... or... or.

    If you're going to make this an even exchange, don't bother. Gift giving isn't about what you get back. It's about showing you care.

  • Is rudeness respected more than politeness and manners?

    Best answer: All things being equal, courtesy always wins in the end. Between two guys of equal talent, if one is arrogant and the other polite, I know which one I'm going to keep when we have to downsize. I also know who most people are going to go to for help, and who will do better in the rankings, and get paid more.

  • Is it normal that I am 21 and would rather not be drunk ?

    I am more of a stoner. When I am stoned I am still in control of my own actions. When I get drunk I stumble around,knock things over, and get emotional.

  • What to say to someone who offers you a ride then doesn't bother to tell you they can't?

    At the beginning of night class a classmate offered me a ride to the nearest subway after our night class. I gladly accepted since it's winter time and quite cold and dark.

    At the beginning of night class a classmate offered me a ride to the nearest subway after our night class. I gladly accepted since it's winter time and quite cold and dark. Another girl was also to get a ride. She explained her husband was picking her up and they'd drop us both off at the mall where the subway was. I told her it would be great since I had to pick up dinner at the grocery store before it closed and giving me a ride would give me a enough time to do so. When we were getting ready to leave they were taking amongst themselves and sort of leaving me out of the ride arrangements. Nevertheless I said 'We ready to go?'. She said 'Oh, we can't give you a ride, my kids are in the car. And one has the flu.' I looked over at the other girl and she was avoiding eye contact. I realized I wasn't welcome and wanted to save my pride so just left. I later found out from another girl that the kids weren't in the car and they were actually giving THAT girl a ride instead of me! I then just asked 'When were they going to tell me?' All she said was 'It's okay. It's okay'. Almost like she was convincing herself it was okay that they dick_d me over. lol Did I say or do something to prompt their behaviour or are they just rude? Then she asked me how I got home! Now they're acting like nothing ever happened. But she's still giving the other two girls rides and they're talking about grabbing iced tea on the way home, etc. What do you say to people who do stuff like that?

    I m about to finish up an internship and I want to get a gift for my supervisor. She s been great, I ve learned a ton and in general I like her as a person. I ve been at my internship four days a week since january, for about eight hours a day. Most of my time has been spent shadowing her, though I ve done some work in other areas of my placement. I have a few ideas for presents. I m for sure writing her a nice letter, and then my uncle has bees so I m giving her some honey. From there though I m not sure. She does aromatherapy, so I was thinking essential oils but they can be kinda pricey so I wouldn t know how many to get. I also thought maybe a book in her feild of work, and maybe something for her office. I can knit so I thought maybe I d make her something? But I m not sure what. Thanks.

  • Has a stranger ever criticized your parking?

    I was parking my car, and some guy was like "Nice job, buddy, you parked in the middle of the road!", but I ignored him. It was a Friday night, so he may have been drunk.

    I've met one guy who is a neighbor at events around the neighborhood. We're around the same age. (We're both straight men.) The third time I met him was this week. Each time, we'd just introduced each other and had a few minutes of small talk. This last time, when he introduced himself, he said, "We've met twice before, and both times, I walked away thinking, 'what a nice person that is!'" How would you have responded to that? Kind of an unusual thing to say. Thanks.

  • What do I do about flaky people at work?

    Best answer: Short of writing "if you have any questions, let me know," there isn't really anything you can do. Some people lack common sense or procrastinate.
