I can't be fake

One thing I've never learned in life is how to act like I like someone that I don't.  Follow?

There is this bitch at work that annoys me to no end.  She is close to the definition of White Trash and she thinks she is a god around this place because she knows how to glue shit.
Recently I was assigned to a new project, this project includes taking pictures of damaged parts if we are unable to repair them.  Unfortunitely for me, this chick is the one working the closest with this project - so I'm stuck working with her a bit too. :(

The process is simple, imo, and I have worked it so that I deal with her as little as possible.  God forbid anything be her fault when I have a question on something.

Right off the bat I didn't like this bitch, she worked her last fall when we were in the middle of this same huge project.  She doesn't listen to authority, she explains problems to the wrong people (in detail) even after being told it's not that persons area, she refuses to accept responsibility for things that are in fact her fault.  She has an obnoxious crush on a guy that works here, even though she is 'engaged' - and slacks at work because she is chasing him around the shop.  No one sees this though, no one of authority anyhow.

My point here is not to bitch about her, although I could go on for days...

My point is that I can't be fake nice to her.  I don't like her, period.  I can't just blow her off because I have to work with her.  I want to just open up a can of whoop ass on her - lol... not really, but when she insists on doing stupid shit, I am forced to bite my tongue.  I know I talk to her in a certain tone, I know my office co-workers notice this, I know I do it.

I don't know how to be civil to someone I don't like.  When does that lesson come in life?

ugh... end of rant.  I needed to vent.  I don't feel better.
It's a good thing I don't surround myself with people I don't like!

I know a bit of what you are going through. Its a pity we can't always work with people we like. I guess its just a case of grin and bare it.

I don't know if there is an age when we learn how to deal with those kind of people. We have all had them in our life, and there is no easy answer. Aren't you related to the owners of your company? Start putting a bug in their ear about how awful she is. Maybe they will keep their eyes open and see it for themselves.
I do feel for you coz its tough to be around someone that you dislike on a daily basis

Be blunt with her. Or just ignore her, and live your life. A character like her can't get the best of you! Personally, I would say"once your done flirting can you come see me for a minute" or something to that extent. Kidding. I say just be straight forward, and correct her when she puts the blame on someone else. :)-e

I can't grin and bare it.. that's the point.
I generally can blow people off, especially at work - but I have to work with her, so I can't.
and Lynne... yes, I'm related, but they think she is a manufacturing god... I will say this, when she does work and does it right, it may take 5 times longer than anyone else, but it's solid work.

Unfortunately for me, I've held it in so long before saying something to her... the time I actual do might be a bit out of control.

Oh well.. such is life - I'll do what needs to be done, one way or another.

I know what you're going through - there's a woman at my job that I can't STAND and I told my boss that I'm about to flip out on her. I know I need to bite my tongue but really...

I'd say just be blunt with her. But try not to be a total jerk at the same time, you know?

There are people like her everywhere! Just do what you need to do
