Ohhhhh...So this is What Happens...Drats!!


*Caution* This post deals with feminine habits. I usually don't talk about certain feminine things here because I want to cater to a more general audience but today calls for it. I have now worked at my new job for a month and half. I'm starting to get into a routine and I feel like my life is starting to reach a level of normalcy again. I'm no longer the new girl, but the side conversation over coffee, and the girl you find when the stapler jams. (The Stapler and me had a battle the other day..I won.) Anywho it is like a day and night difference from my old job and I'm not talking about the actual work. 

The big difference between the two jobs is the people. In my last job I was Snow White basically by the end. I worked with 6 men and had little interaction with women at all during the day. NOW at my new job I am with at least 30 women sharing the same bathroom. Certain things I'm now learning will become in sync with the other ladies.  I used have my montly gift anywhere from 32-62 days, usually 40ish days. People have even told me that the lack of interaction with women can cause a delay in period can cause a delay in period . It has always been frustrating all of this especially not knowing when I'd get it...however that is not an issue now.

25 DAYS! Not the normal 28 days it "normally" be, but 25. It's been this way for 2 cycles like clockwork. Needless to say it's driving me a lil stir crazy even tho I guess I should be grateful for the regulation. I guess it is true that girl's periods will become the same if you spend a lot of time with the same women. Just my luck. It's kinda funny tho because all last week everyone was running around like a chicken without a head in a frenzy. Today...it was a calming of the storm. Everyone was tired, craving chocolate, having the hot/cold flashes, looking like someone hit them against a wall, and wanting popcorn. It was the P-Day. I wish someone had warned me.

I think I should bring in cupcakes. Maybe they will all realize I've caught on to the scheduling. I might have that "How did you know I wanted this?" moment with a few and bond a lil. lol. Everyone said it was going to be different switching from working with men to women but I didn't expect this. Oh well...I'll get used to it and plan ahead. Where was that chocolate bar again? =P

Do You Work with Women or Men? Ever Encountered an Issue like this???

I used to always complain about having widely spaced periods... but regular and much more often can make you long for the past : )

Remember the fifties when pretty much everything was taboo! The world is still bonkers in some ways:)xx

Honestly, I have no clue. I've never actually discussed this with my former co-workers before. But cupcakes will always help you to win friends and influence people! :P

Krystal said...

THE ALTERNATIVE WIFE said...

Haha this is so very true. We're all like clockwork around here. :)

Rachael said...

I haven't really ever thought about this - I think most of the women at work with are on the pill so that moves the "natural" timing out of the way. I'm a 25 day cycle girlie though!

Jen said...

I work with ALL women and its like that big time. It's insane just how much I can guess when each woman will start.

Krysten @ After 'I Do' said...

Oh yes, I've encountered this multiple times in my life!

Sandy said...

OMG Mel, I remember years ago I worked in a small PR firm. 8 women and 1 man. One woman was menopausal (THAT was exciting), one was pregnant and the rest of us started within 2 days of each other. Even tho I don't have a period any more after the hysterectomy, when my gfs are pms'ing, I do too! YEESH. At least I don't go through THAT agony any more. Now, I work with a mix but I've lost track of who is doing what at what time. WHEW! Good luck ... chocolate anything usually works :)
