I've just started a new job - it's all great, great company, close to home, great offices and very professional, nice people yada yada....
But! One of the girls I work closely with, well I feel like she may be trying to intimidate me. I'm not sure, it could just be her (moody, seems annoyed when I ask a question, rather abrupt at times). I left today (early day yay!) feeling rather glum about the job because of her.
For example, she bangs things around her desk and if I ask a question she sometimes seems quite annoyed or just answers in a way that shows me up in front of the others (like I should already know or something/short blasé answer that doesn't really help me). Today she didn't speak to me at all but involved the others in team in conversation and asked everyone if they want coffee from the cafe except me.
I wouldn't care about this type of behaviour normally and maybe I'm being over-sensitive but it's starting to make me wonder if she doesn't like me (even though its been only a week!)
I said her name incorrectly on my first day - I said it like it's spelt but apparently it's pronounced differently. She immediately said 'I HATE when people call me that' and I apologised (this was all rather friendly though and we laughed about it). She is friendly at times, just seems really rude other times.
How should I handle this? I have to work rather closely with this girl although more so at the moment until I can have more autonomy over my own role.
She doesn't seem to be like this with anyone else, just me. Not sure how to handle it. I'm very friendly! And I'm no threat to her role at all!
