Q & A

We have an annual Xmas gift exchange in the office.  Everyone knows each others personalities and interests.  So, there isn’t much trouble thinking of gifts to give.  However, there is an elderly employee who is obnoxious! She’ll announce everyday that she wants a gift card to Macy’s or Nordstrom and nothing less than that. I think that’s VERY rude.  How does one handle such rudeness? Isn’t it the thought that counts?

    • Yes it is the thought, what a rude heifa she is! Especially in this economy.
      See, I’m the type of person to pull her name and get her a $5 buck gift card for either place or whatever your purchase minimum is. I figure if you‘re tacky, I’ll just be tacky right back, but with style! LOL!

    • Thanks!
      That’s pretty funny!
      I prefer not spend $25.00 on a gift card
      for someone who could never appreciate “the
      thought that counts“. As you said, especially
      with today’s economy.

    • Personally, she sounds like my MIL!LOL  always telling people what she should get and demanding.
      Here’s what we do: AVOID HER LIKE SHE WAS THE PLAGUE!
      Get what you want and then ignore her behavior.  That won’t stop her, but sticking to your guns and ignoring her is the right and just thing to do.
