Gee. Thanks.

I was sitting at my desk this morning feeling slightly pleased with myself for getting up and getting to work early. I didn't even feel to terribly considering it was my first day back since Dec. 24. I was in the process of clearing my desk of a week's worth of backlog when a colleague came in to wish me a Happy New year. And then what did she say?

"You okay? You sure look tired."

Thank you so much! That's a polite way for telling me I look like shit.

Made my day.

I have always said, "If you can't say anything nice, keep your trap shut" Some people are just rude.

I feel your pain. I've found http://www.gwally.com/pranks/office/
quite handy at providing legitimate revenge. Good luck!

Funny how those words of concern feel more comforting when you are actually feeling sick and/or tired. But when you aren't, they are insulting. There's nothing really to do, I suppose, but appreciate their concern especially if it's genuine.

You should have just punched her in the box.

2005 the year of the box punching!

I was thinking the same thing as Jason was...knock her in the chops and go at it.

I haven't seen a good cat fight between two women in quite a while, can you video tape it for us?

Seriously, it is those simple, well meaning comments that can really get under people's skin, as you have well experienced.

i'm sure what she meant to say was, "gosh! even when you're tired, you still look better than me..."
