Was I right to not go to this meal?Watch
One of them is a very nice person but is quite private, keeps herself to herself and doesn't socialise much. I respect this and she is very friendly and kind to me and respectful, and we talk a lot.
Anyway, she is clearly disliked by the other girls, even though she has never personally been rude to them or done anything unkind..
We have socialised together once or twice in a group with her but not much. The other girls socialise together pretty much weekly, but as we work together every day I prefer to sometimes be alone or see other people.
Anyway, they have been organising a dinner party and have been talking about it all week. I was invited but the other girl wasn't... but they werne't even discreet about it; they talked openly about it in front of her but nobody ever invited her.
Anyway, I feigned illness but the truth is I just found it a little cruel. She is not the most sociable but she has suggested stuff to them in the past and they have declined.. She was quite upset and I can see why.
Was I right to decline my invite because of this? I know they don't have to like her but I just don't feel it was handled well.
It's kind of a similar situation and obviously they didn't have to invite her, but I understand completely why you wouldn't want to go if you knew she was upset about it.
