Starting from next year, I will be under another mentor / manager. We are suppose to stick together through thick and thin. She is actually newer than me, probably less than 1 month old in the company. They all said that I will get along well with her because she is very bubbly, cheerful, sensitive etc. But to date I do not seem to share the same sentiments. On the contrary, I find myself building this sense of resistance against her.
Partly because I don’t really know her that well. I sit somewhere in the middle of the office and she sits right at the end (distance matters). So far we have not worked on a project together (although soon there will be, mostly the Chinese speaking projects).
Partly is her dressing I guess. Last Friday, she wore this t-shirt, mini skirt and slacks. I mean the t-shirt and everything is fine. Its just that she is like NNTTL and yet she tuck in her t-shirt and she is not exactly my size? The combination is just weird and this is not the first time I spot her with weird dressing.
Is it possible for one to have resistance of another person because of how they dress? Is it considered as discrimination? I can’t help but wonder what other reasons I have this resistance.
This brings me to another thing. SLLS has quit and her last day was like 2 days ago. Good for her! and me. haha
