I get along with most people. I've developed some friendships with people at work outside of the work environment. I've been there when some of the girls have gone out of their way to sign up when I'm working on the schedule because they like to work with me. I'm definately a "team player" and go out of my way to help others. I can be lazy at home from time to time... but i'm not lazy at work. I always do my job and often go above and beyond. If I know labor and delivery, OB or peds is drowning and I"m not busy, I offer to help them. I also do a lot for the nursery. I spend my money and buy ribbon to make hair bows for the girl babies. I make hats, hand mits and booties for a lot of the babies. There is a lot more I do... but I don't want to sound like I'm tooting my horn, I'm just trying to provide an image of what I do on a regular basis at work. I called my work last night to talk to the girl working because she ordered a crochet purse from me and I wanted to know if she liked it. We got to talking and she let it slip that someone made the comment "no one likes to work with nancy" it broke my heart that someone would say such a thing. I don't understand why someone would even say that. I tried not to let it bother me, but I ended up bawling my eyes out over it. I've been trying to just let it go and not thing about it, but it seems to have invaded my every thought I did find out who made the comment. It's the one co worker I work with that is very lazy. She spends hours out of the shift outside smoking. She's not a team player. She will take the easy patients every chance she gets to avoid having to actually "work" She doesn't help clean the unit or stock. She doesn't make any of the education or admit packets that have to be made on a regular basis. She will literally sit there and read her book or play on her kendall (sp?) while the rest of us work. The ironic part is that i have been on vacation for the last two weeks and have had no interactions with her. It puzzles me to understand why she suddenly makes a comment like that. I shouldn't care what she thinks of me.... and I don't think i really care, but i don't like the fact that she's making these kind of comments to other people. It will make me feel like people are talking about me behind my back or wondering what i do or don't do to cause people to not want to work with me. I was happy to find out that people have been defending me and pointing out to that person who made the comment that they do enjoy working with me. So..... that makes me feel better. I want to confront this person and find out why she said what she did.. but if I do that, she will know that the person she made the comment to shared it with me. I'm not sure what to do about it. I'd like to just put it behind me and move on... but i seem to be stewing on it mean people suck!
