my co-worker and I need to have some sort of "boundary talk" where I’m all:
"I really don’t want to date you cause I don’t want to lose my job and you’re the boss’s son and it would be bad."
"stop being such a jackass."
"please, please remember that you are in a position of somewhat-authority over me and this could constitute as sexual harassment."
"don’t fart in front of me cause that’s gross and it makes me want to PUNCH YOU IN THE FACE."
he does deliberate stuff like that to piss me off.
the sad thing is, it works.
he’s just dumb and stuck in the 7th grade or whatever. so that’s kinda my day. so… yay for wierd boundaries with the boss’s son!
I’m over it!!!
in other news, I got the HUGE ASS database to export into my email account. but it all imported in the wrong fields. so I’ll be cutting and pasting about 900 entries today.
LJ: plz to help with awkward work situation?
ETA: I had a chat with him yesterday where I just said, "M, you crossed the line. I think sometimes that you do things deliberately to upset me and that’s not okay." He apologized.
It occurs to me now that this might be him testing the boundaries of our working relationship – that maybe he’s never worked with someone like me before and that he doesn’t quite know how to respond. and/or that he doesn’t know how to "talk to girls."
I just want it to be easier. but I will have to maintain the boundary of our "working relationship" and that’s a lot of work.
as Moody would say, "CONSTANT VIGILANCE!"
