Do you know anyone who just sucks the energy out of the room?

My cousin and I hang out every week and today she brought along her boyfriend's SIL. That woman is such a Debbie Downer! She talks so low and slow and whatever you say,she gives it a negative spin. She makes time SLOWWWWWW down so much!

  • My SIL... she has some serious serious health concerns and has always been sick. It's so hard to talk to her in person or on the phone because all she talks about is in detail what health issue she has right now, what meds she's on, etc. I know she needs to get it out but still! Then when she comes around she constantly compares mine and dh's house/kids/life to hers and makes it sound like everything she does is right or better. She's dh's sister and he can't stand being around her for more than 24 hours!

  • Oh my gosh, yes. A lady I work with. In the same office, about 4 feet away. She called in "sick" with a headache today. She is quitting in a couple of months and they just hired the new person she knows she won't be able to take off because she has to train the new girl....weird, huh? Lol oh well, it's actually QUIET today. Love it.
