Am I A Bitch?

Yesterday at work, a guy brought his new born baby in to show her off to the office. Fine. But the baby was crying (more like WAILING) and it was disrupting me, so I called my supervisor and asked her to ask him to leave...or at least take the baby into a lobby area. The man looked at her like she was crazy, but he did it. This is not a nursery...it's a business.

Was I wrong?

If it was a one-time thing to show the baby off, I would have let it slide. I mean, unless you're doing a film shoot or a medical operation, how much can you job really be affected over a few minutes of baby-wailing?

Well, it was more like 15 minutes. Believe me...I didn't want to do it, but you'd think common sense would have told him to take the baby to another area since the baby just wasn't coopertating? We have 150+ people in this office (I work in a call center type of place where we have to take incoming calls, and it's hard to for me at least to concentrate with a crying baby in the room). I wasn't the only one complaining...just the only one who said something to our supervisor...who was in her office on the the other side of the room with the door closed.

Have you stopped to consider that you did the right thing, but are a b!tch anyway? :-p

(By the way, I think you did the right thing. My experience is that workers with kids tend to be ingrateful about the sacrifices those of us without kids make to cover for them.)

I almost put that as a poll option, but I already I know I "can be" bitchy.

No, you were not wrong, but that doesn't change the fact that you are indeed a bitch.
