to think this is bitchy? or am I being sensitive?

I have a tiny diet plan stuck on my desk, its a very extreme diet and I do not follow it, just the method I follow. Such as you are allowed 400 calories one day - so I eat 1000 and burn off 600. I only followed it for a week and lost around half stone.

3 weeks ago a colleague who just does gives you brief assessments every other week (so I don't work with her directly or even in the same room) saw it and I probably explained for a minute what it was and she just seemed hmm

Didn't think much of it, it's her personality, sometimes she is as nice as pie and then can switch in the next moment to being cold and short with you. It's odd but she's like that with everyone and I don't think she realises how she comes across.

Anyway yesterday she walked over to my desk said I'm borrowing this and pulled my diet plan off my desk and walked over and started discussing it with a colleague I only vaguely know. Walked back over and stuck it back on my desk without saying a word and walked off.

I just found it bitchy the way it was done, it's not as if I had spoken to her and recommended the diet or had a noticeable weightloss and she noticed it 3 weeks ago so why not do it then?

Or am I being too sensitive? To be honest I found the whole thing bizarre

Not bitchy, just odd.

Not sure why it would be deemed bitchy? Bit strange but not bitchy

yep agree not bitchy just rude.

I suppose weight/diets is something I'm just sensitive about.

Why are you worrying about this? Just let it go!

She sounds as though she has no social skills. Most people would say, "Do you mind if I borrow that a second?" rather than "I'm borrowing this." In the same way when giving it back, most people would explain why they'd needed it.

The problem lies with her, not you. As you've said, she doesn't seem to realise how she comes across.

unless they were whispering about you and giggling then there was no bitchiness. she's just rather impolite.

'Hi X do you mind if I borrow this for a minute?' said with a big smile, works wonders.
