TMI

TMI.. Usually when we use that term it relates to something gross. Ya know, when your friend starts to tell you about the color of her poo, or when she tells you about the color of the fungus growing on her toe nail.

Well, there’s a person at my job that gives TMI about everyday stuff. If you bring up a topic, she’ll go into detail about it. For example, one day we were talking about popcorn. She said she doesn’t eat microwave popcorn anymore. She only does it on the stove top. I mentioned that I hadn’t done that in a while, but I had a bag of kernels at home and maybe I’d do it soon. Well then she proceeds to tell me how to make popcorn. Where the hell did she get the idea that I didn’t know how to make popcorn?

In December I brought up the fact that HR had sent an e-mail about letting them know if you wanted to stay in a hotel for the Christmas party. Every year prior the party has been during business hours at lunch. So, I was interested in finding out what she thought about a night party. I asked if she saw the e-mail. She says no, and then begins to explain that the company won’t pay for it and that companies do it so people don’t have to drive home at night after drinking. In my head, I was like WTF? I know that.

 I don’t dislike her, but today it was frustrating cause she kept doing it over and over. I’d ask her a question related to work and instead of just giving me a simple answer she’d start explaining everything. I was just like answer my question. That’s all I need you to do. I just needed to vent.
