I think I have been fair

But WHY does my co-worker have to bring her new baby upstairs to visit now? I know every other Friday is payday and she's coming to collect her paycheck...but still...I need a break. I've dealt with the office visits, going down and ooh-ing and aah-ing as I felt I could handle appropriately. I even sent her a baby gift for God's sake. I think I've been more than fair.

But today, everyone is busy and can't go down to see she comes up here! She's outside my closed office door with that crying baby right now. I assume I'm expected to hop up and go make googly eyes at her precious son. Doesn't she GET IT?!?! I'M NOT COMING OUT! GO AWAY!

(((hugs))) I know exactly how you feel. And you're not a coward. You're a human being who has been hurt far beyond the comprehension of this woman. I don't blame you a bit for staying in your office.

Some people just don't get it and probably never will. But we do and we're here for you. And just so you know, I would've been a coward too.

i don't think it's cowardly to protect your sanity.

I don't think you are a coward - I think you are SO STRONG for not leaving your office and pushing the pushy co-worker over! I hope you finally got a potty break, along with a sanity check from the co-worker.

Not only would I have stayed in my office, but more than likely would have been under my desk, fingers in ears singing 'lalalala' until they all buggered off.

For God's sake, these people have such short memories. Your worst nightmare was only 4 short months ago. I don't know how they could forget or expect you to either. I wonder if a nice door plate reading "Get Lost" would stop people standing by your office like that?
