So a lady at my work has decided to throw a joint baby shower for the three of us ladies who are pregnant. What a thoughtful idea right? Well, there are a few minor points that are causing a huge uproar in my circle. The first is that this lady is not a permanent employee and has ZERO relationship with any of us PG ladies. Then she invited everyone (guests of honour included) VIA a mass email to the ENTIRE school (men, women, whether we know them or not).
Well, none of this really bothers me all that much, except that two of the "guests of honour" are really close to a girl in my department who was planning on throwing a baby shower for the two of us and inviting people at work who we are close to. So now, my entire department is boycotting the shower because of this, and another girl is boycotting because they never threw her a bridal shower. (Last year they threw a joint bridal shower for 3 ladies, but the year before, this girl and myself got nothing when we got married). I hate being in the middle of all this drama. I have no choice in who throws a shower or when or where, I just have to show. Who knew being pregnant could cause such controversy! Ugh.
