Day 22, Wednesday:
 Rant about something. Get up on your soapbox and tell us how you really feel. (a pet peeve, a current event, a controversial topic, something your husband or roommate or neighbor or boss does that really ticks you off)
Here's something that ticks me off.....
When people think of themselves as humble, but are really narcissistic jerks.
For instance...............
One of my coworkers is the worst. He has the ability to be a really nice guy, but mostly is full of himself. On Saturday, we were at an event and we were talking with another coworker.
R - "Hey, Jess. This may have been before your time, but do you remember when we did the promotion....? You may not have been here for that, but..."
Why would this annoy me? Because I have been at the station a full TWO YEARS longer than he has been there.
It was everything in me not to reply, "Well, R, since I've been here longer than you, if you can remember it than so should I."
He is full of those types of gems.
Another thing he does that irritates the crap out of me is constantly emailing our boss about things that he should email me about. Or, if he does email me, he copies our boss in. Basically, he doesn't feel like he should have to defer to a younger female, so he includes our older male boss.
You may think I'm making this up, but pretty much everyone in the building agrees that he does this to me and a couple other younger women.
