Jennifer's like, "Um, no. Bossy." Kristi's like, "Okay," but she says it a hundred times and it's the kind of "okay" that means "shut up." Jennifer continues, thinking we're dealing with a rational person here: "I'm really tired of it, and a lot of people are tired of your attitude -- you don't think you have one, [but actually] you do. You complain about little things...please, just try and roll up your sleeves, smile " Kristi complains that she feels she's doing a lot for the team, and Jennifer agrees. "You're doing a ton, but [that] doesn't make it okay to complain and whine when I ask you to do something." Kristi then goes for strike two: "I don't think I'm...whining that much, and I'm sorry that you do." Which, actually that's strike three, because I hate it so much. "I don't feel that way, but I'm sorry that you do." Really? Because no matter what we're discussing, or what I think, you just automatically proved me right. It's the Godwin's Law of discussions like this, because it's content free: of course I feel this way, and of course you don't agree, so really you're just answering a question that nobody asked, because you're an asshole. I would have walked away right then.
Jennifer's still in there batting: "You are, you just don't know you are, because that's what you do." She interviews to us that Kristi "brings the team down," and seems quite at the end of her rope as she spits, "She needs to go, I'm sick of it." Back with Kristi, she's all, "Just stop it." Kristi continues to bitch and talk meaninglessly, and Jennifer is awesome. She goes, "Okay, thanks," turns around, and walks away, slamming the door behind her just as Kristi's walking toward it. You know she didn't do that part on purpose, but it was delightful. Now, I don't think Jennifer handled this perfectly -- I would have told her a couple of hours earlier to shut it until she stopped sounding like Melissa -- but she did better than I thought I would, and this pleases me, because now that I hate Kristi, and Rebecca's a ticking cobra bomb, I don't have that many people to like.
