This is a story from last Friday (CD 1 as you might recall).

So I just got to work and was going to put my lunch in the fridge and the secretary was back there and says to me in an oh so sweet, I want attention voice, "I just got a new niece last night!" (FYI, she is 1 of 14 kids in her family so she already has like 30 nieces and nephews.)

So I replied with out thinking, in an EXTREMELY sarcastic tone, "Oh, goody."

Whoops, I wasn't suppose to let the bitter randomly leak out like that.

So then I immediately apologized and said that I was just bitter and walked back to my office while she grumbled something as I left.

I've got to start watching myself, or embrace the bitter bitch inside of me.

I've been there too. Don't feel bad about it. It sounds like she was just looking for attention anyway.

Thanks for the comment and advice :) I've had slip-ups, too.... oops!

I hear you. I have to say it never ceases to amaze me how people just blab and brag away about babies, esp in an office's unprofessional, esp considering that 1 in 7 people have a fertility issue. I want to scream, You do the math! Anyway, I suspect that you probably think you sounded worse than you did....

I let it go today too. Someone was complaining that we did not sell organic baby food cookbooks. I pointed out that she could use organic ingredients with the regular cookbook.

What a moron.

What on Earth will she DO without a book telling her to replace carrots with organic carrots?

Don't worry about it - I have been there so many times!
