I just had someone come up to me to congratulate me and immediately gave me a hug. It was really sweet, but when she pulled away and started talking, she sounded awful! She's a nice lady and I like her a lot, but really? Think about what you're doing, girl!
My office is full of sickies, though. The other day, I had someone else who already knew I was pregnant come talk to me at my desk for about ten minutes before she told me she had bronchitis. That particular lady drives me crazy. She makes more than I do and when I was promoted, I was told that I couldn't be promoted above her or make more money than her because she assists a higher-ranking AVP, although her AVP is not my AVP's boss. I was told that it would hurt her feelings, despite the fact that my work is considerably more difficult and I do more work more efficiently than she does (those are actual things that were told to me). This woman had to ask for help in making a Power Point presentation full screen in our last staff meeting. Not that any of that has anything to do with all the sick people in my office, but OMG I need a new workplace, please.
Ugh. Rant over.
