Oh gosh, people are so fucking absurd! This is a thought I have very often but I really cannot stop laughing at how silly my coworkers were being today.
I was working with Danielle, whom words really are not sufficient to describe, due primarily to her propensity towards awkwardness. So our conversation goes something like this:
Danielle: “Hey, I don’t want to interrupt your reading, but who was that girl in here the other day?”
Me, trying to make it clear that this interruption was indeed unwelcome: “What girl?”
Danielle: “Laila said there was a girl here on Sunday. ”
Me (now getting really annoyed): “There were lots of girls here on Sunday.” (I was hoping to end the conversation here, but true to form, Danielle could not take the hint.)
Danielle: “Your friend was here, and Laila said you, her, and Chad left together.”
Now, I wasn’t quite sure what to think–as in, I was uncertain why Danielle was bringing this up, what relevance it had, and feeling a tad guilty for not inviting Laila along, tedious though she may be. Was this the point she was getting at? So, I said, “Yes, my roomate and I had dinner with Chad and Mason on Sunday.”
Then, with a look that can only be described as completely asinine, Danielle said, “Well…Laila likes Chad.”
Give me a FUCKING break! Seriously!
I mean, I know that Laila is a bit younger, and to be fair she missed out on the experience of high school so perhaps she’s trying to live out all of that bs now, but I do not have time for such silliness in my life. Apparently, though, Danielle and Laila do.
I didn’t really know what to say–I was partially annoyed that they were being so nosey/discussing this issue amongst themselves, and partially annoyed that they’d think it appropriate to say something to me about it. I don’t consider whatever relationship Laila and Chad may or may not have my business, and I don’t think Marley and Chad’s relationship is anyone’s business either. So, I just decided to say, “Oh, cool.” Lame, I know, but I didn’t really know what else to say?
“Well, Chad said he’s going on a date with your roommate tonight.” Danielle replied, with a pretty rude tone in her voice if I do say so myself.
So I said, “Cool. I haven’t spoken to her today but I’m sure they will have fun.”
I mean, what the fuck people? Why did this conversation even have to occur? Danielle spent the rest of the day furiously texting (Laila, I suspect) and giving me the occaisonal evil eye. It’s just so petty and dumb–but, alas, if there’s one thing I know about women, it’s that they love a good melodrama.
All in all, it was a very annoying day–luckily, the fact that roomie was not available for dinner this evening inspired me to take Mr. Martini up on his dinner offer. :) Now I just need to figure out what to wear–Mr. Martini is so not the typical male and I feel like I can’t wear what I’d usually wear on a date with him…that is, nothing too sexy. Hmmm.
Well I hope everyone has a fabulous evening and please remember children, Save the Drama for Your Mama!!!
