two-faced coworkers

Posted by peddidle on July 5, 2007, at 13:02:40

I had to go up to the front to deal with someone because the other people who would usually handle it were out to lunch. I wouldn't have ordinarily touched a computer that wasn't mine, but I had to look this person up in the system. Well, I noticed that there was an open IM conversation with another person in the office on this computer. I know I shouldn't have read it, but I'm a girl and I couldn't help myself. At one point in this conversation, I see this:

"Am I as fat as ____?" (referring to me)
"lol no! why would you even think that?"
"I feel so big and gross and I was looking at her fat a** in that dress on tuesday and I thought 'omg what if I look like that?!'"

There was some other stuff about other people in the office in that conversation too. I can't believe this! I mean, I knew the one person has been being a little extra catty lately, but weight is a really sensitive issue for me.

Anyway, luckily more people weren't around because I started crying and of course my make-up got all messed up.

This is the kind of thing I should probably tell my T about, right? I kind of want to email her, but what would I say? That I took a stupid comment really seriously and got too sensitive about it?

I realize I shouldn't have looked at the conversation, but I did, and I can't change that.

Am I overreacting?
