Bitch at Work

2
Dear Street Sage
 
There’s this bitch at work who I cannot stand.  She’s never done anything to me personally, I just hate everything about her.  Every time she opens her mouth, I want to slap the face right off her stupid head.  I’m afraid one of these days I’m going to do or say something I’ll seriously regret.  But seriously – 5 minutes with her and you’d wanna cut a bitch, too! What do I do so I don’t lose my job? Or go to jail.

Dear M.M.
Calm it down. This annoying bitch at work is definitely not worth losing your job or going to jail. Do you know anything about her personal life? Maybe she is really annoying because the rest of her life sucks…or maybe she is that bad. Either way, you should find out what makes her tick. There is something to be said about the old saying “keep your friends close and your enemies closer”.
If you find out that her personal life is in shambles maybe it would
A. Give you sympathy for her
B. Let you judge her even more
C. Give you something to use against her OR
D. Maybe you find out you don’t hate her so much after all
You say she has never done anything to you personally so I imagine she maybe has an annoying voice, or everything she says is rude or condescending. She may even be some sort of competition for you.  Maybe you need to check yourself on a few things too.
That’s just my opinion.
