It’s most definitely rude and happened to me. I was talking to a coworker (“Anne”) about a project we were working on when a third coworker (“Betty”) came over to chat about it as well. As we were wrapping up the shop talk “Anne” asked “Betty” if she wanted to grab a drink after work. She paused, then looked at me and said “You can come too if you want”. I laughed and said “Please, I don’t need pity invitations to drinks, have fun!”She looked embarrassed and I can’t say I’m sorry I shamed her. It was incredibly rude and patronizing. I knew they were good friends and spent time together outside of work. I really didn’t care that I wasn’t part of their group. But honestly it’s not nice to be intentionally excluded TO YOUR FACE. She deserved to be called out. I didn’t hold it against her after that interaction as I’m pretty sure she learned her lesson.
8 long hours in an er , I still till this wonder how the nurses son who suffered adderal addiction is doing it was all I heard from the nurses desk . Or if the nurses that came in one the next shift ever became a romantic couple. As I waited for the results from the dr they were giving each other massages. Asked them if they minded me photographing them “ at work “ I also took a photo of my arm that they drew blood from ( how many times can you restick) I believe the practice nurses answer is YOU DONT.
