Do you think something is going on between your boss & this new girl?

no. she is 25 year old and he is 56. she is also of different race and religion. But she is immature and my boss is also like that. so maybe their personalities mesh well.

If they aren't asking you to join them for lunch occasionally, I'd feel slighted but I'd try not to let it eat away at me.

When I am at work and she is sitting and chatting in his office and us working away, it does bothers me. I asked the other lady whether the favouritism affects her and she said yes. But she will be resigning soon so she doesn't care.

They invited me to join them at first but I declined. If I joined them, the other lady would be left out. She is an older lady. Besides, I don't like what they

Even though there is a huge age difference and she seems to have a high and mighty attitude about her religion, it still sounds like there is something inappropriate going on. I wonder if her religion allows for unchaperoned time with men at all!

Well, I'm sorry this is going on where you work. It's not like you can quit them and go find new co-workers. Similar things have happened to me before and it really stinks. It's very sweet of you not to leave your other co-worker out. I hope, when she retires, someone comes in and the two of you hit it off really well :)

You know what is my biggest fear now? If my boss hires someone like this new girl then this place is going to be like a zoo.

My boss's boss has retired so he is kind of out of control. I can't believe I have to push my boss to work.

Thanks for your encouragement. This is first time, I encountered such extreme favouritism. This older lady knows that my boss does not like her therefore she is taking early retirement.

This older lady has a wealth of knowledge which we will lose when she goes.
