It's not that I'm expecting people to go out of their way to soften the blows to my fragile emotional state...but is it to much to think that maybe SOMEBODY would take the time to make the extra effort?
How I found out about a coworkers pregnancy...
Yesterday at lunch..."C is so tired...you know...that early pregnancy tired..."
Frick! Frack! Fruck! Are you kidding me?!?!
Thankfully C works in the other office in the other building, so I rarely see her. But really...do people not have any empathy? Is it too much to ask that someone says, "Just so you're not blindsided by it...C is pregnant?" Or am I just being too sensitive?
No...don't answer that. I don't really want to know.
And I thought May was going to be easy.
***next day addition to this story***
All the ladies in THIS office...in THIS building...are standing in the hallway just down from my office, talking about C's food aversions. What IS it with women? They don't even know her that well and yet they are dissecting her pregnancy as if it matters to them! I can't take this! Please shut up! (Door closed...I hope they get the hint but I doubt they will. Can you say "clueless?")
