Potluck tomorrow at work. Please help
by Anonymous
December 9, 2012 at 11:00 AM

So tomorrow's our holiday potluck. I guess for some people this is exciting, but for me, it's something that I always dread.

I work with someone that is so nasty. She barely combs her hair, chipped fingernail polish and is just gross. We work in a healthcare setting and I've seen her do some  pretty disgusting things. I've even called her out on a few things. I have to figure out how to avoid putting anything that she prepares on my plate. I have to be very discrete about it because, in the past, I've noticed how she watches what I put on my plate. She makes comments, which is totally ignorant to me, but, whatever, she is who she is.

This is a small cry for HELP. Any suggestions?

    Find something in her dish you can be 'allergic' to...

    Don't put her stuff on your plate.  If she's eyeing you you could claim an allergy issue.  Or, fill up your plate and put her stuff on a different plate.  Or, fill up before you go and don't eat.

     Just pick the items you want? Seems simple.

    Ask her what she made and then DON'T put it on your plate.

    I have no patience for that kind of thing.

    If she said anything to me, I would just tell her I'm very cautious of my immune system.

    Just don't put it on your plate and if she asks why just tell her you're not crazy about whatever her dish is. But maybe you should speak to a supervisor about her hygiene issues?

    I like the idea of filling of my plate and putting her stuff separate LOL... this may work for me. Afterwards, I'll just throw her stuff out and then say "That was so good, how did you prepare it" LOL You know how office politics is.
