She's the constant "victim" though.
To give you a sample of the insanity:
-In the time I've worked in this office (7 years to her 6 years), she's moved 7 times. Each time she had to move because roommate X, Y, or Z was causing problems. When she finally got an apartment sans roommates, she then had problems with her neighbors and had to move a few more times.
-She has three kids, none of whom are on speaking terms with her...but its THEIR fault.
-She's an absolute slob. She constantly leaves dirty dishes in the community sink for days at at time, then gets upset that her stuff has been thrown away several times.
-ETA: She suffers from "migraines" at least twice a month, but the attacks only seem to happen on Mondays and Fridays, since those are the days she calls out sick the most.
I've literally stopped speaking to her or acknowledging her presence at all unless it is work related.
Her response? Now I get daily compliments/emails (non work related) that are saccharine filled drivel. I don't respond.

Oh yeah, and I can't. stand. people like this.
She was "robbed" when she didn't get a job I was qualified for and I got it instead. (That began my turn in the spotlight) She is also physically repulsive, promiscuous and has no filter. The first time I had a conversation with her she showed me a Dick Pic on her phone of one of the online bondage guys she hooked up with. When I objected, her response was "What? I was showing you the color of his shorts!" She has three guys on the hook at once (more than I have had in my lifetime) and cries victim when all these guys bail after she flies them out to stay in her apartment with her teenage daughter and one was promising marriage before they even met in person! And she thought it was ok to make marriage plans because he was "protective" of her and her child before even meeting, and because she had a safe word! WTF? All these guys are from her fetish site and they are strangers to her and her child. But she honestly believes them when they talk marriage! So bizarre.
She is inherent in the drama circle and loudly complains about EVERY. TINY. THING that happens in the lab. And if someone doesn't condone her backbiting, she takes it to the LAB MANAGER, who has to listen to her drama. She has alienated her entire family, but it is their fault, not hers. I have never seen such a train wreck. And she thinks she is amazing.
Oh, and when I made a huge pot of chili a couple of weeks ago for the whole laboratory, she blew up another co-worker's phone on the co-worker's day off, texting about twenty times with gems like "Jessica is letting the PHLEBOTOMISTS eat too! I bet she is using your spoons! Are these YOUR bowls? She is letting them use bowls! I bet she didn't even save ANY for you! blah blah blah". And to make that even more infuriating, the other co-worker and I are the only ones that bring in the bowls, plastic utensils and disposable plates. SHE doesn't contribute!! But sure enough, her fat ass sat right down and ate chili. The evil, phlebotomist-feeding chili.

I've actually spoken to all three of the last supervisors we've had and while they agree she's a problem, she isn't a big enough problem to get booted out. But they all promise to have a "talk" with her.
Hey, I think I know this girl.
Must have been before she had children, I knew her in the college years. Good to see she hasn't changed!

As a phlebotomist, thank you for feeding them! I've been on the not receiving end of "lab lunches" that only included techs and supervisors.
The reasoning? "Well the phlebs are always so busy, we didn't think you'd want to eat"
We get hungry too!
why are you so mean to her? she's just trying to be nice!
Well apparently she noticed that trying to nice me into engaging with her isnt working.
She has two new (8x10in) "motivational" signs hanging in her cubicle:
Whoever is trying to bring you down is already below you.
Fact: Haters don't really hate you. In fact, they hate themselves because you're a reflection of what they wish to be.

Jessica is letting the PHLEBOTOMISTS eat too!
Are phlebotomists like Gizmo? Are you not supposed to feed them or they turn into gremlins?
