Can't say too much as I'll be outed! But a management level ex colleague left last year after a year's mat leave just a couple of months after I joined. By the sounds of it even though she was well liked, I'm glad she's gone as I don't think we'd have got on as she sounded very self important (especially after hearing her massively elongated leaving speech!) and quite up herself in terms of not taking jokes, even ice breaking ones, and requiring brown nosing/ego massaging!(Had to ask her advice at one point and I did not like the way she replied, quite curt, quite patronising, and there was no need for it).
Maybe we were both lucky how things turned out!

How can you be arsed to give this enough headspace to start a thread about it?

Thestrangestthing Tue 14-Jan-20 21:46:37

What? Why are you even thinking about this enough to start a thread about it confused

Weirdly strong reaction about someone you didnt know and barely worked with...

Or.. Just a thought...she may have been dealing with a whole tonne of policy and work stuff around returning to work post child, that you might be lucky to avoid, or may see eventually if you stay there. And that MIGHT explain why your colleague was curt?? I's not like THAT ever happens, eh?!?? hmm

TitianaTitsling Tue 14-Jan-20 22:14:47

I must be super tired too as don't get this at all... You don't like someone you don't work with?

ClemDanFango Tue 14-Jan-20 22:15:56

Ah I can see why this would keep you up at night .....🙄

Doyoumind Tue 14-Jan-20 22:20:00

Drink involved by any chance?

WildUnknown Tue 14-Jan-20 22:21:26

You didn't know the woman at all, and have decided with very scant reasoning that you wouldn't get on so you are glad that you'll never work with her?

I'm very relieved one of my colleagues has left (couple of shifts to go) but this is because I had to raise a grievance for bullying and it was awful before I did and awkward as fuck thereafter so it makes sense to be relieved

For a woman I don't know I don't think I would analyse this hard or give it the headspace. confused
