Small difference at work

So… I had a really unusual thing happen at work today. A co-worker emailed me asking for something. I told her where she could find the information. She said she needed more instructions. I gave her said instructions. Then she replied and said something like it’s hard for her to get what she needed. She replied and said that I was “uncooperative” and “reluctant” and “resistant” and all these words, she used to describe our interaction. I was totally flabbergasted. It totally came from nowhere. I said I am happy to show her how and when is she available to meet? She replied and said she figured it all out but that this could have been done in two emails instead of six.

She also cc:ed my boss in all the emails, starting with the original request.

I am hoping that on Monday, my boss will let me know that I didn’t do anything deserving of those words. She was way out of line. We rarely even work together and for her to say those things to me over something SO trivial makes me think that it’s her, not me.

It took sheer will for me to not obsess over this all night. My kids helped do that. Thanks kids!

Looking inwardly, I actually don’t really like her as a colleagues because I heard some shady things about her. But I have never let this be known to anyone. I didn’t go out of my way to be nice to her but like I said, we don’t really work that much together.

I don’t know if this pertains to this blog but I just had to get this out there…. put it in my God box since there is nothing I can do, except pray about this.

    Good luck. Let it go until there is a specific action you have to take. Some people just spread their misery around.
