Hate and discontent!

Co-worker as he dropped off a pile of paperwork on my desk, in utter disgust,

"Do you know how many people hate you?"


Me, pondering, "I don't know. How many people work here? About 150?"



It's sometimes good to be hated, you know?


Think about it.




I would have to be more worried if they DID like me.

Honestly! I can NOT figure this out. You are such a funny, warm person. I mean, how can one company have so many complete idiots!
I'm really hoping your cool thing that's happening involves moving to a new job with actual nice people.
Seriously, it will be the highlight of my week!

OMG how RUDE is that?!? I'd file a complaint with HR about that person. That was absolutely unnecessary!! Even if every single one of those 150 people actually hated you (which I can't even imagine) it was absolutely unnecessary for that coworker to come in and make that comment! Geez.

So I guess an immature comment like that deserves that schoolyard taunt:

"I'm rubber, you're glue. Whatever you call me bounces off me and sticks to you." LOL

HOW RUDE.

"Do you know how many people hate you?"

Me - Better question - Do YOU know how many people I'm concerned about hating me?

What an asshat.

Well isn't your co-worker a ray of sunshine? And, of course, like you effin care? Cause you went to work to hold hands and skip around with them. Then later you were hoping to braid their hair.

Angie said...

I just have one statement for YOU.....do you realize how many people LOVE you?????

Captain Steve said...

I'm sure that when you begin to give a damn, he will be the first to know.

tiger lamb girl said...

Wow. Tell me he was being sarcastic.

Oh. And - what Angie said.

Kimberly said...

Umm. There are other types of harrassment than sexual, you know. I know you wouldn't, but you could totally sue their butts for creating a hostile work environment.

Poor stupid people.

Robyn said...

Well someone pissed in his cheerios this morning huh?

How rude. I would look at him blankly and then say.."I'm sorry, did you actually say something or is that shit still spewing from your mouth?"

Hope your day gets better!

CPA Mom said...

what is he, 10? Why the hell would you SAY that to someone - at work no less?!?!

I like Robyn's response above!

Christie said...

I love your reply to him. with my mood today, I probably would have said something along the lines of that being okay because I hate them too.

what a bunch of cocksuckers

SJ said...

Oh my.....

I just can't make sense of this. Just can't do it.

judy in ky said...

Let's all get a posse together and come to work and defend you!

Rachel said...

How freakin rude! What an ass that guys is. I just don't get it! How could anyone hate you??? You, my dear, are awesome!!

imadramamama said...

What an ass!!

queenrandom said...

Scuze my language, but...

What a DOUCHE!

frannie said...

you should have just looked at him and said, "well, I know one person that hates you"!!!!

Dawn~a~Bon said...

How DARE he?!?!? Ohhhh what a JERK! Look, I can say this with authority because I've worked with you - you are a PLEASURE to be around. What a freakin' jerk. I only WISH that I still got to work with you!

Kelly M said...

OMg I can't believe he really said that to you. Asshole..good thing you are there to DO YOUR JOB and not worry about making friends. They are all just jealous of you!

Anonymous said...

What an ass crack! Seriously, I would file a complaint. Hostile work environment and all, it might lay the ground work for a settlement or stress leave.

How grown up of him.

beeker said...

What an ass! I have been reading for a few months, so I know there is no one to to report this too, so I have decided to go to a higher power. You need a new job, so I have decided to ask my grandmother to put you in her church's prayer basket. Long story short...that prayer basket works miracles.

Jocelyn said...

Co-worker is really cool.

In what direction did he hope that question would lead?

Joy T. said...

Only 150? Considering the world has 4 trillionbilliongazillion people in it, I'd say 150 assholes is just a small pittance really. Hardly worth your time :o)

Jana said...

FUNNY!! I am with you though, when someone likes you, it's work to keep that up! But I gotta tell you somethin...I like you!

Allie Bear said...

I think its healthy for a certain number of people to hate you, its just weird if everyone likes you.

Emma in Canada said...

I don't know how complaining would help, sadly your job seems to be one where you get dumped on by everyone.

J said...

Seriously? Rude. If people don't like you they should keep it to themselves. Idiots.

Morgan Leigh said...

What. An. Ass.
