My Co-Worker

When I started working with her at first she was friendly, but after a while she started getting on my nerves, and we soon. began to have argument over stupid things. If I made even a small mistake with my work, she would give me a hard time, you know, she would poke fun at me if I smiled at or chatted with any of our male colleagues. To add insult to injury, she began to question my honesty, and one day when some money disappeared from someone’s handbag she told people she thought I had sticky fingers. I don’t believe she was an out-.and-out evil person but she was certainly asking for trouble and one day I just lost my temper and, you know, told her exactly what I thought of her and how much I disliked her. We haven’t been on speaking terms ever since
