Distance yourself from her whenever she goes into one of her drama crusades. Does she act up more if she is acknowledged?
I'll admit I was shocked and upset by Michael Jackson's death as I was a fan, but I sucked it up and held in the cry till after work.
Today, Good Friday, is a bit sad to me for religious reasons. Again, I saved it for church and once I went back to work I was all business again. Actually I'm happier after the service, because I believe in the miracle of what came NEXT.
I'm going to POD what the above posters have said about avoiding her. How does she keep her job when she behaves so childishly?
