i was trying to do something good with that resolution to be nicer to the coworker i cannot stand. and i was actually trying to follow through.
and then ...
... i spent the day listening to him alternate between belittling the new employee and giving her faulty instructions, which had she followed (had i not jumped in and told her how to actually do what he needed done) would have resulted in more belittling for doing things wrong.
really, do you really need to unstuff the envelope she just stuffed with a letter and three attachments to make sure she photocopied it correctly? really???
i hate ending my week like this, not sure whether i'm more angry at myself for letting him get under my skin, or more angry at him for being such a prick.
