This morning I was in my manager’s office with my manager, our AA and another co-worker. We were all joking around with each other because we were filling out cards for some of the attorneys. We decided to give a few of them a small gift because they’ve been really supportive of us. So, our AA comments with a laugh that her brain isn’t working and she’s not feeling creative since she stayed up so late last night. She works at a bar part-time, and has told me that that is where she spends most of her earnings. So I chuckled and said, “Did you work too late, or did you just drink too much product?” She abruptly turns to me and tells me to fuck off. In front of my manager and another co-worker. The comment may have been somewhat obnoxious, but I don’t think that such a reaction is warranted, particularly from someone who freely tells all and sundry that she stays out late on weekdays drinking and doesn’t want a serious relationship with any guys, so she just dates as many as she can.
Did I say something incredibly mean, and just don’t have the social skills to know better?
