My colleague is always hungry

Sep 13, 2012, 06:27 IST | Dear Diana

Dear Diana, I am fed up of my colleague. She's irritating like hell! You see, she is always looking for food.

I know I’m sounding harsh but trust me, it’s difficult to cope with this woman. She is either asking people to give her food or thinking about her next meal . If not that she is counting the hours (or minutes) that she has not eaten. Once we had to stay late in office and more than that we had to bear the brunt of her of not having dinner! How do I tackle this menace?

Dear Rohan,
First things first. Where does your colleague come from? Is she from a severe famine-hit area where people have not had a proper meal for ages? Then you have to understand her predicament. Food seems to be uppermost on her mind. That’s because she might be an insecure person who seeks comfort in food. But why do you get so irritated about her food habits? Just ignore and get about your work. And don’t pay any heed to food and feasting agenda.
