My bad i read your profile after........ well i am 23, so that fact that your calling me immature is just funny xx
If Mrs Frosty doesn't want to talk to you then talk to someone else, I doubt its a tiny office. Or do something else, like get the boogy box out or something.
How far away are the desks? Can you seriously not move places?
I've been in that situation, it's not the nicest thing in the world, I just got on with my job and listened to the radio and talked to other people. It was slightly different in that it wasn't my boss who was frosty, but the same principle would apply.
My point was calling her names, behind her back or otherwise, simply because she's a bit distant is really immature and actually really nasty. It shows no respect for people, especially as you don't know why she is quiet.
Age has nothing to do with maturity.
I've thought about this and I have some questions....
Do you go on thesite at work?
How long do you go on for
Is it stopping you from doing the work you should be doing?
It may be that your colleague is pissed off with you for not pulling your weight but doesn't know how to sort it out?
Not that I can't handle this accusation of "mean" but I'm hardly the only person that thinks she's being a child about this.
I don't have a problem with sensitivity, I fail to see how it excuses such immaturity.
ETA: Just for the record, it's not like my boss in my gap year was exactly easy to handle, especially from the generalised sexual harrasment.
Personally, from what I've heard I don't think this particular manager is being an arsehole, Bong and Kermit agree.
My boss being an arsehole is no call for me to over-react, work might take up a lot of time, but as far as I'm concerned it's a small part of my life.

Good for you. You have a sensible attitude towards your work.
I still think your attitude towards people that are more sensitive and think differently to you, leaves a lot to be desired. I also often think this about Kermit and have rowed on here about that sort of thing before :yes: He does redeem himself though with his other views and is nice in real life, which im sure you probably are too, but on here, your attitude to others often pisses me off.
Maybe its because im immature?
Why dont you try enjoying life Fiend, perhaps if you weren't so mature you wouldn't sound soooo old and bitter for such a young person, u really should take a leaf out of my book :cool:
Its lucky that actually ends up being funny rather than insulting.
Its lucky is it, why what would you have done if it wasn't? :chin:
I wouldn't have done anything, it would have just been quite pathetic if it was supposed to be insulting.
U lot really need to get off your high horse, just because your 'established' lol and have been around for a while........u think you own the site and that what you say goes, now that is pathetic! :yes: get a CLUE!
Dear. Oh. Dear.
How a thread has moved from a problem at work to a petty argument about maturity really is beyond me. Maybe ALL OF YOU are being a tad immature?
Shall we just get back to the original topic and stop taking sides. :rolleyes:
CherryPie - in between all the bitching there have been a few good suggestions in here. I wonder if this situation has nothing to do with you at all - but that your manager has her own issues that are making her act this way? Maybe she's unhappy about something or just shy etc? Whatever it is I can totally understand how you feel - when you don't even get a 'good morning' you can start to dread going to work. I know - I've been there (not here at TheSite I might add!)
The thing to do is rise above it. Carry on being as pleasant as you can muster the energy for - if she is having problems she will appreciate it, and you'll feel better that you're making an effort. But resign yourself to the fact that it's purely a professional relationship. Be courteous and work hard and leave it at that. You obviously get on with other people in your office - try and arrange to spend a couple of lunch times a week with others to get some pleasant interaction and if you need to talk to someone else about something at work, make the effort to go and see them rather than sending an email.
