So I just got married 2 weeks ago - yay! - but the people at work are driving me crazy about it!
We had a super short honeymoon because I didn't have any vacation time left at work. As soon as we got back all my coworkers kept saying "didn't you just get married? Why aren't you at your honeymoon???'" Well... because we get such little vacation time here that's why! Trust me, we would have taken a MONTH long honeymoon if we could have.
This week my to-do list is extremely long and I'm working over-time to get it done- like a good little worker. Yesterday I had THREE people come by my office in the evening and say "Why are you here? Shouldn't you be cooking dinner for your husband?" "Shouldn't you be at home taking care of your husband?" "Why aren't you at home with your husband?" ...REALLY?? what century do we live in???? We are trying to save money to buy a house next spring, so I am going to work my butt of to earn that! I would love to spend more time at home with my husband, but we have agreed that the next 6 months are about saving as much money as possible to get our dream house!
I LOVE my job! I LOVE working! I'm a career-oriented person. I'm not someone who wants to quit my job and stay at home as soon as I get married. We have agreed that my husband will be the stay at home parent when we have kids and I will be the working parent. Apparently that is an extremely foreign concept to everyone at my company. I know they are just trying to be cute and funny, but after the 20th time.. it's not funny anymore. I feel like they are all judging me for being a bad wife.
