to be cross at somebody who has helped me out?

I think it was the way she did it...

Long story, but i have been backwards and forwards trying to work out a mutually foavourable situation...and it has been hard to arrange as a third party has been obfuscating the issue and making it hard to sort everything out.

Cue my friend, who has basically done not alot for 3 weeks about the situation, swooping in a sorting it out and "rescuing me". The situation was pretty much dealt with, just needed a final answer- so she went to get it as i was feeling stressed about the problem and other stuff too.

I feel she thinks now she has "sorted it all out" for us and her inaction is forgotten by this final "oh, i'll just deal with it for you" approach.

But, the thing is sorted and we are getting the thing we need done and I am happy, just a bit grrr by the ending bit.

Far too vague to say, I'm afraid.

I sort of know what you mean... YABabitU to be annoyed at her doing something she obvously was suposed to do (albeit all along) but I get your jist with regards to being annoyed at her taking credit for sorting almost the whole thing, whereas she only did the last bit.

Ok, i don't want to elaborate further in case she ever finds out that although she feels she has been lovely in sorting it all out for me, I feel a bit cross with her for the way she did it.

Will draw a line under this now.
Thankyou grin

Like taking all the credit for a goal when the whole teams, or someone else has worked really hard to set it up

what was the point of OP?

I think I know what you mean. Sort of like The Americans thinking that they won the second world war. Exactly like that?? grin

Are you saying that you did most of the work, she swooped in at the end, finished off a tiny bit and grabbed the credit for the whole thing?

If that's it, then that's not nice of her.

hmm.. 'mutually favourable' .... 'obfuscate' .. 'inaction' ....

Who could parsibly live in a syntactic harse like thiys?

onebatmother Wed 01-Oct-08 00:27:36

that will only work for the 35-45 yr old demographic, sorry.

NappiesGalore Wed 01-Oct-08 10:25:55

poorbuthappy Wed 01-Oct-08 10:31:49

YANBU - my boss is exactly the same...and I've started to tell him what he's doing cos it pees me off so much!

Simplysally Wed 01-Oct-08 10:32:21

I like obfuscate and inaction grin.
