Ask Tee

Alright my lovelies, you know what day it is! It's Wednesday so we have another installment of Ask Tee. Feel free to give your insight and thoughts on the readers question or my advice.

Letter #1

Dear Tee,

I have this coworker that I think is a little strange. She keeps trying to corner me and had this ultra personal conversation about her sex life and I DO NOT want to hear about it. We are not that close.

How in the world can I tell her without causing tension between us since we work closely together that I don't care about her sex life?



My Answer:

Dear Tanya,

Tanya, try subtly changing the subject when she tries to talk about her exploits. Cut the conversation short if you have too. Most people will eventually get the hint. That way there is no tension between you two.

If she is thick headed and just does not get it then an uncomfortable conversation may be unavoidable. Try pulling her to the side and simply say to her that you prefer to not talk about her sex life or you can always talk to her supervisor and have them subtly intervene.

Good Luck.

That's really weird that you have to do anything about it at all. If it isn't one of your close girlfriends or someone you are planning to be with, how does the subject come up anyway?

Do you go into work in the morning, and she just opens her mouth and says "And one time, at band camp...."

I always try to add a little humor to soften the situation. Just say something like, "Oooh, girl, that is just tooooo much info! My poor little virgin ears can't handle it!"
