Advice is very welcome too. I don't ask for a lot here but I need anything you guys can spare for Friday. My boss and I are going out to breakfast. Things in my office have been pretty bad lately and that paired with a few other things have led me to decide to quit sometime after the new year. Part of the problem is that I share a birthday w/ another lady here (I'll call her L). Normally this wouldn't be a problem but I don't really care for this woman. She's been here a little over a year and she's not learned anything... she's not open to learning and she's just ignorant! (she also happens to be black). We all think her race is irrelevant but my boss is scared to let her go because of it. Anyway, our boss usually takes us out for our b-days and I didn't like the way it was going to happen. One of our co-workers (I'll call her A) also works in a golf shop and we were supposed to go there for dinner while she was working. I said I didn't want to go as I didn't think it was fair to the person working there so she canceled it. Then Monday everyone but myself and A were invited out to breakfast for L's birthday. Mind you, I think of my boss as a surrogate grand mother (she's some 45 years older than I) and I've worked here for 8 years... 8 years! And she takes the stupid one who's only been here 1 year instead of me. Ok, </rant> The real issue is that I want to talk to her about L & how hurt I am that they went out while my b-day went unnoted, about our work and that she might be out of touch with what we're doing, and about the fact that I'll probably be resigning in the next year. The thing is she can be hard to talk to. I'm a little afraid of how this breakfast is going to go.
