An afternoon cup of rejection

Alright, enough moping. Onto some complaining. There is something I dread doing every May peeps. In May I have to re-connect with a professional contact who...wait for it...doesn't like me. I know, right? Who could not like me? :) Alright, I admit that personally I can be unlikeable. But in a professional context for minimal business type dealings, I am totally likable. I am efficient and friendly and always deliver on time.

Look, I don't know why this lady doesn't like me and maybe it's not me, maybe she doesn't like the company because I have gotten nothing but thinly veiled frost right from the get-go. Of course, if that's the case I'm not sure why she keeps doing business with us. Obligation maybe?

Anyways, I keep reaching out with coffee/meeting invites and I get rebuffed every year. I just sent off my annual entreaty this morning and I am not looking forward to my cup of afternoon rejection.

Work grumble.

So here's my question - you don't drink coffee or warm beverages aside from Second Cup's hot chocolate. What do you order at coffee meetings? I have always been so curious!

Well, at the Good Earth I enjoy Italian Soda, at Starbucks I go for the cream based frappucino, and I actually like Timmy's hot chocolate.

Mostly I wish they served Diet Coke.
