The Nerve.....

OK so normally I don't blog about this kind of stuff but for the last couple of mo. I have been working along side this 18 yr. old (Boy) B/c he isn't a GUY if he can be like this.
Anyhow I would just be talking away thinking that he's right there so I know he can hear me. And I'm just making conversation. And every time he never responds. So today after trying to make conversation he doesn't even acknowledge me. So I then say, "You know....I'm just going to assume that you don't want to have a conversation with me so I'm not going to talk to you anymore... His reply....."OK!" My thoughts were....well you little punk @$$....did you not just hear in the meeting the other day about respecting the people you work with? For God sakes Grow up! He makes rude comments and Mocks people when they laugh, people he doesn't even know.... And he continues to say all the time "No Good" in Spanish (i wont attempt to spell that out b/c I don't have a clue.) to people, and one of my co-workers heard him making fun of people. Soooooo I guess my ? is do I bring this to the supervisors attention or is this petty and would it make me look like a whiner?

thanks for the comment :) I STILL haven't gotten my Elsie recipe cards and I ordered it online about a month ago. I went to their website and I couldn't find any contact info, so I'll just wait a few more days.
About your post: I think that bringing it up would make you seem like a whiner. If he says something truely demeaning about your character, your work efforts or your personal life, THEN I would bring it up to a supervisor. It sounds like he is just being a "boy" - exactly what you said. I would try to ignore him.

Hey Angela! It's Karen from Rachel's art journaling class here :) Just thought I would pop over and say...hi!

Thank you for your empathy re: my comment on the class site. I know what you mean, I have problems taking pics of my WHOLE self too. Usually it's face only. I need to overcome that somehow. And I know what you mean about thinking your life is not interesting to share too. I used to blog but I haven't for a year. I stopped because of what was happening in my personal life. I lost a lot from that experience, but it has taught me a lot about myself. I have a new love in my life now and have never felt so happy, and my self-confidence has returned, but my creative confidence is taking a while to get there. Rachel's class has definitely stirred the creative voice up again, and it's an amazing feeling, isn't it?

Girl, I just wanted to say that I think you are SO beautiful, SO talented, and you and your life are SOOOO worth journaling about!!! Everyone deserves that opportunity. Thank you for reaching out and sharing your feeling with me :)

Love xo

P.S. I am in two minds about whether you should say something about this kid or not. I agree with Rebecca, but then he does need to be respectful too. Hmmm, being a "boy" is right! Boys need to grow up tho :)
