I work for a design firm that manufactures golf and tennis apparel.
Great place to work, excellent people to work with.
Our office is 98% women.
And with that being said… in “I can’t make this stuff up!” – Work Place Edition…
I’ve got a co-worker in her mid-late thirties, OBSESSED with another co-worker, who just turned 60, because the latter co-worker is OBSESSED with wearing the same type of outfit or same colors, on the same day, of the following week (if you can keep up) that the former co-worker has worn.
For example, if co-worker A wears white pants and a blue top on Monday — co-worker B will wear white pants and a blue top the following Monday.
Now I have to say that all of this is “alleged” as I’ve only been shown two pieces of “evidence” that suggests that co-worker B is actually doing this but I just find it utterly hilarious that co-worker A believes so strongly that this is occurring intentionally, that she’s been documenting what she wears since February of this year to prove her case!
I don’t know the whole background between these two ladies from when they worked in the same department but could this actually be some sort of passive aggressive form of bullying? Or could there be a simpler explanation?
I’ll definitely keep you updated on this strange case that I’ve affectionately named “Imitation is NOT always a form of flattery!”
