So I work as an admin for this department, although my department is actually the admin department. Does that make sense? So if we have an admin party or anything then it’s just me and the other 3 admins and my boss.
The actual department I work in is like 30 people and they are always having these parties for baby showers and bridal showers and birthday parties and going away parties. We are always asked to contribute to a gift but I stopped about a year ago when I realized they have nothing to do with my birthday or anything like that and I’m cool with that…I stay out of your stuff and you stay out of mine.
I want to respond to the emails and be like: if you all actually remember my birthday or I actually get a card then maybe I’ll feel oblidged to contribute but as of now, uhm no.
I know this makes me incredibly unpopular and there are a few people in the department that I actually take the time to get to know and talk with, for them I’ll get them my own card.
I swear, I’m becoming a bigger bitch every year. What am I going to be like at 50?
