SHUT UP ALREADY!

Today was just one of those days that make me feel like hell must be on earth. I don't know what it is about me, but I truly draw the strangest and most unpleasant people to me. Today my one co-worker, who is also a young female, kept popping into my office asking me what I was doing and how far I was with my work,  checking up on me. Now just so that you know, we are both temporary workers, meaning we are on the same level and get paid the same, but for some reason she feels she needs to check on me. She did it yesterday too, but not nearly as much as today. I know you guys are probably biting your lip, hoping that I behaved and yes I did. But honestly, I don't think the professional attitude and talk will help with this one. She seems to only understand the crude communication method, which I will probably use if she doesn't stop stalking me.

I don't know why I can't be left to just do my work for the day and leave. I am polite, I talk to people when the occasion calls for it, but when I work, I work. I think being a writer makes me more aware of the little things like what people say to me, the manner in which they say it and how people treat me. I don't know if she maybe thinks I am a threat and now she needs to assert herself or something. Granted, last year she had to do the job I am doing now, but this year my new boss begged me to come back and do the job, which I did for two years before she came along.

Did I mention that I share my office with another co-worker who only comes in twice a week? Now that lady is nice and professional. When she comes in she also only does her job. I can't wait for the annoying girl to drive her crazy too.

I apologize if I come across as whiny. I just wanted to share my experience with you, just in case some of you need new ideas for your characters too.

So, what is going on in your life?
