Why Will My Co Workers Not Call Me Cute

Co-workers keep calling off at work?

Hello everyone, I am so frustrated right now, and I really need some answers because something do not seem right about this..

First, let me tell you. This is my first job ever, and I work in a retail department store ( I will not name the company). I work in the shoe department, and we have a pretty small team of co-workers working in the shoe department-- six people, including me. Our manager schedules us for like 4-5 hours by ourselves, until the next person clocks in, or for the rest of the day.

Now i'll get on to the point.

What's driving me crazy is that my co-workers are always trying to call-in "sick" just about every other week or if not, every week. They always call me, so I could take their hours/shift on my days off. This seems to happen just about every other week, and now I always have a feeling that someone will try to call me in, just because they're "sick". They even try to get me to stay longer after my shift of 10 hours, so I could cover theirs because they're calling-in. I'm honestly feeling like I'm trying to be taken advantage of. I used to cover some of their shifts for them, but I've stopped a while ago. When ever they call or text me, I just tell them straight out no. However, they still contact me first out of all 5 other associates.

I'm the type of person that want all my days off, if I have days off. I do not want to go to work on my days off, obviously, because I need rest too. Just because I have a day off does not mean I'm available.

My question; Is it normal for co-workers to be calling off work so often like that, or is it just me? I'm really starting to consider finding a new job because this is ridiculous. I can't even have peace on my days off without someone trying to call me in every time. Trust me, it's not the type of "sick" to be calling in for. These people are calling in because they claim to have a simple cold, or a tooth ache. I've had a cold not too long ago, and I still came in to work. I brought a box of tissues and some Halls along with me, and dealt with it.

My new co-worker called me pretty?

I just started working as a housekeeper at a hotel, Ive only worked 3 days so far. Today I met the maintenance worker, he's pretty young, like 25. He seems really nice, and he kept walking by my room asking if I need help with anything, if he could lift something heavy for me, or help me clean my room (even though he shouldnt). Then when I walked by him, he said "dont worry, you're doing well. You're much prettier than the other housekeepers anyway".. I felt awkward so I just said "oh thanks.." and walked away.Then later on he came to me and said "i hope you're not mad at me for calling you pretty. you're just really pretty, and you make me nervous" ..... I felt alittle weird, so I just said its okay.. What should I say to him next time?? What would you do? Im not really interested in him...

How do you tell a coworker, who calls you names, to stop?

How do you tell a coworker who calls you names, to stop?I had a coworker once, an oil trader, who was some days a decent fellow and other days an arrogant prick. One day out of the blue he started calling me a derogatory name. I said, "don't call me that".He repeated the name. It was obvious to me that he had a childish mean streak and that he didn't have any regard for my feelings in that moment. But he hadn't thought it through very well. You see, he had an enormous nose. His features were very nice, and the nose didn't make him unattractive, but it was PROMINENT.I walked away that time, then the next time I had to deal with him he called me a name again. So I greeted him by saying, "hey banana nose, how's it going?".He never called me a name again.I don't know if something like that would work in every situation. Not everyone who insults others has a glaring physical anomaly. And some are in positions of power, and have considerable influence over your work life. But invariably there will be something that they are ashamed of, or that they don't want brought to light. Sometimes you can simply pick some imaginary embarrassing failing out of the air, and it will be close enough to something that they're actually ashamed of that they will back off.Other times you just have to dig a little, because everyone you'll ever meet is fighting a hard battle. And if they are belittling others and acting thoughtlessly, they have deep insecurities and many things of which they are ashamed. In a typical dysfunctional work environment you will find people dealing with anything you can think of: alcoholism, drug addiction, anxiety disorders, germaphobia, marital difficulties, relationship disappointments, personal financial issues, scam victims, health problems, career disappointments, investment miscalculations, etc.In fact any of us is foolish to belittle others, because we all live in glass houses in the end. Yet most of us do it occasionally anyway (although not necessarily to their face).Cheers.

What does it mean when a guy coworker calls you ugly?

That they are ignorant and mean.And, mostly, stupid. You have a couple of strong options here.Because bullying is becoming a more common thing for employers to frown upon, and in many cases, act upon.‘Dear HR, this person harasses me, they said I am X (insert whatever word they used to describe your appearance). My appearance has nothing to do with my performance, and I understand in our policy that harassment and bullying is not acceptable. I would like to submit a formal complaint’.When done correctly, clearly, concisely, with tact, and facts, at the very least, you will arise as the person who shall no longer be ‘f*cked with’.HR, or their manager will likely have a nice little chat with them, at the very least, ‘you need to stop bothering X person, they have made a formal complaint’ or ‘we need to talk to you about X situation (they will likely leave your name out, for safety reasons), it is not acceptable. Please sign here stating you acknowledge and understand our policies’.IF you don’t want to go to HR, you can respond with,‘Oh, I’m ugly hmm? Interesting that you say that because that has NOTHING to do with competency or aptitude in the work place and I would strongly encourage you to keep those types of comments to yourself as they ONLY reflect poorly on YOU’.You could also try ignoring them, but again, this person is a bully, as so clearly indicated with their narrow view of the world. So, best to nip it in the bud and go out guns blazing.Good luck to you.

A coworker called me out on a mistake I made. What would you do in my position? He’s making it out like my manager favor me over others.

This is serious. Really serious.In order to make it lighter, some comedy… Sleep with your manager, get promoted, fire the co worker that called you out.I hope that you laughed a little, because this is what is all about.There are several reasons why you might be given the impression that your manager favors over you. These things might not be in your control, or naturally happen because you are good in your job, or you are more effective and you have ways of communicating better what you do.If the thing that he called you out has some basis, then you need to take is seriously and find ways to improve yourself. Do not afraid when you are making a mistake, the people that are successful see themselves in the people that did mistakes. What they do not like is when someone does not take up responsibility. This is really bad. In fact, they hate it because they cannot trust you.Do not get into compete mode. It is meaningless.A common source of mistakes is when we try too hard, when we do something that we think that we know but it proves that we do not have control over it. Are you trying to prove something to your coworker or your manager?

Is it normal for my girlfriend to tell me which of her coworkers she thinks is cute? And which ones are hot?

It’s not normal, she is testing your frame.Every guy says “I’m this cool guy”, but we are lying pricks when it comes to women, so they subconsciously devise ways to test if we are legit.So this is a test, to see if you have traces of jealous/obsessional/stalker behaviour. Or are you too afraid to stand up for yourself for fear of losing your woman?All you have to ask yourself is “what would (insert the coolest most charismatic guy from TV or films) do in this situation?” Mostly, people who are comfortable with their relationships and comfortable with their masculinity will not be threatened by other men being interested in their woman. Personally, I go out with a really beautiful women, way out of my league if we were talking looks alone. It’s natural for other men to be interested in her, I don’t really have an issue with that. When it steps over a line and becomes insulting or disrespecting, a real man will instantly set down a boundary, not by yelling or getting angry, but just by stating what is acceptable behaviour to him.In general the more subtly you can subcommunicate your intentions the better. It’s not really about the words you use, more about the masculine calm you radiate, and the lack of whiny beta male bitchiness.

Why do people keep calling me cute?

In truth, the word “cute” is so infuriatingly unspecific that it could refer to any number of things.It is often attributed to personality- if you are innocent or endearingly optimistic or lovably annoying, you’ll often hear the word creeping up in your day-to-day conversations. For example:Me: If DARE tell me a single thing about what happens in the next episode,I’ll make sure to it that you wake up with maggots for organs, and then I’ll chop off your head, and feed it to your dog!Him: Awwww, you’re so cute <3Like bruh, I’m plenty serious here. Don’t make me regret this decision to spare your life.Anyway, back to the topic at hand, “cute” can also be condescending, though I hope for your sake that’s not it ( and its unlikely that everyone around you is that rude ). As in “Yeah, that dress is pretty….cute”. But I’m sure you’d be bright enough to realise if they meant it like that.But in all likelihood, your height does probably play a role, and if you have a youthful face ( perhaps, round and unangled, unwrinkled), then that too. It’d be easier to understand if I’d seen your picture, but being relatively small and youthful does oft inspire that sort of compliment.

I want my coworker to sit on my lap and call me daddy?

Censorious bunch on here, aren't they?

Invite her out for lunch and explore the ground cautiously. Keep the tone light and jokey. If she says something a little bit cheeky or sassy, grin and say something like, "Careful, young lady - you might just earn yourself a spanking" - and see how she reacts.

Alternatively, turn the conversation to some bad girl in the news - Lindsay Lohan or Paris Hilton - and say, "What that girl needs is a good old-fashioned spanking" - and again, check her reaction.

But play it carefully - and good luck!
