My workmate, a girl I was never friends with because honestly, she's a bitch, has decided that being pregnant gives her the right to treat everyone like absolute crap. She yells at everyone, has hissy fits, and acts like a grumpy 2 year old pretty much all the time. No one can stand being anywhere near her, and all the other employees have refused to work with her to the point where she actually had to be moved to a different department because the one she was in couldn't function with her there. So, she got moved to mine....Yippee. Well, I am also pregnant. I know that the world does not revolve around me and my pregnancy. Long story short, she has decided to try to report me to the manager for every little petty thing she can think of because I make her look bad. She won't get up to walk across the office to give paperwork to somebody who is busy on the phone. "I can't. I'm soooo tired. I'm pregnant." I pretty much don't sit down all day. I run around and DO MY JOB. Oh, and she is only 3 mos. pregnant and not even showing. I am 6 mos. and look 9. So far, the manager has been on my side, but if they fire her or try to get rid of her, she can bring a lawsuit against them saying they fired her because she was pregnant.
P.S. Her boyfriend left her because of her attitude as well. I don't blame the poor guy.
So, what should I do? Keep taking her crap? I have already let my stand on pregnancy be known around the office. I say I'm pregnant, so what? Women have been getting pregnant for thousands of years and will be getting pregnant for thousands more. For the record, I am not having an easy time with my pregnancy either. I have acid reflux so bad I can't lay down, I have insomnia so bad I can't sleep, I am "morning" sick all day long every day, I have trouble eating to the point where I have lost several pounds instead of gaining, my varicose veins are popping out all over the place, I have disgusting stretch marks everywhere, my boobs hurt, and so on and on. Guess what? No one in the office knows that I slept three hours last night, or that I just threw up my lunch in the company bathroom. Duh, I'm pregnant. That is what happens!!
This woman is just using her pregnancy to be a lazy slob, and I'm sick to death of it. Three of my friends have women in their offices who do the exact same thing. As soon as they tell people the are pregnant, they stop doing their job and let their work fall on everyone else. I feel like an exception to the rule. Maybe I shoulr just sit on my ass and do nothing....
