How do you handle a narcissistic coworker?
I have a coworker who is annoying. She talks a lot and mostly about herself. In times when she has tried to engage me, the minute I start talking she focuses back on herself and if I try to finish a thought she answers, "Well, I'm talking about me now..." She does this to others as well, but I deal with her the most because we take the bus home together from work. There was even a time that I was tearing up about something, and she saw that but proceeded to ask me what I thought of her new earrings. So not only is she a chatterbox; she is also incredibly self-absorbed. How do I deal with this? Should I "tell her about herself" or should I just yield to her? Not that it matters but she is in her 40's and I'm in my 30's. Thanks.
