Used This on Annoying Coworker

(1/1)

BeagleMommy:
Today was my university's annual Administrative Professionals Luncheon.  I've gone to it every year, but this year I just didn't want to go so I RSVP'd "No".  Annoying Coworker came to my desk around the time of the luncheon (I've used all caps because she never speaks below a shout)

Annoying Coworker:  COME ON!
Me:  Where?
AC:  THE LUNCH FOR SECRETARIES!
Me:  Oh, I'm not going.  Enjoy yourself.
AC:  WHAT!!!  WHY AREN'T YOU GOING?
Me:  It's just not possible.
AC:  WHY?  IT'S FOR ALL SECRETARIES!
Me:  I know, but it's just not possible.
AC:  YOU HAVE TO GO!
Me:  It's an invitation not a summons.

She had other people to sit with so I don't know why she was making a big deal of this.  Just more of her weirdness, I guess.  I think I did well.

jayhawk:
Perfect!  Sounds like she's never considered the possibility of passing up a free lunch, regardless of the reason!  I really, really love, "it's an invitation, not a summons."  :D

Black Delphinium:
Very nice.
