Both of the women I work closely with are at least 30 years older than me and with one of the women it seems to be a problem sometimes. For as long as I can remember this ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…â€œgeneration gapÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â has caused personality conflicts in my life.
I started to notice that whenever I write this woman an email she never responds to it. If I ask her if she can do something or if she finished something it will miraculously get done within the next hour. Is it too much to just pop me an email telling me the status?
I found out she ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…â€œdoesnÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢t respond to emailsÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â because she ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…â€œfeels we should communicate like a communityÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â or something :dunno: I realize that IÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢m only 2 cubicles away from her but sometimes IÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢m in the middle of something and itÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s just easier for me to email than go ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…â€œhave a talkÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â with someone.
If you are older can you tell me what it is about my generation (IÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢m 28) that drives you crazy? Erik says there is something about me that seems to intimidate people. Me?? Intimidate?? He says I have this anti-authoritarian way about me and it might rub some people the wrong way.
I canÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢t tell you how many women of older generations IÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢ve significantly pissed off in my life, itÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s starting to make me wonder.
If this is too boring for you maybe you should check out this chick.
