I accidentally found out my coworkers don’t like me.
Today I tried to do a nice thing for one of my coworkers. She mentioned she had a craving and so when I was getting my lunch I picked up the food and drink she wanted too on a whim.
I gave it to her and went to the breakroom to eat.
I guess I got the wrong type and flavor. When I came back from my lunch she told me to ignore the instant message she sent me.
Naturally I read it since it was the first thing that popped up when i logged in. It was some not-so-nice things about me that she meant to send to our other coworker.
I tried to keep my composure but I had to go to the bathroom to cry. I’ve always been kind of an outcast, but this was a huge blow because I thought my coworkers genuinely liked me.
I feel like even at 28, no matter how hard I try to fit in and be nice, I somehow mess it up.
- Your coworkers don’t deserve someone like you
- Stop doing them favors, keep it strictly work related.
- Unkind people never like anyone. They don’t even like each other, they just enjoy being nasty together.
- This is a reflection of your coworkers and not you. You sounds like the best coworker ever and your coworkers sound like children gossiping and passing notes. Who insults someone who provides such a kind gesture? Garbage. OP, you sound awesome.
