Hi everyone! I have been having a hard time dealing with this in my head and would like some outside input. Sorry for the long story...
I started a new job about a year ago in a relatively small office with 10 employees. A month into working there, 2 new people (A and B ) were hired and 1 moved away (C) within the same week. Our supervisor organized a party. It was explicity titled "Going away party for C and welcome party for A and B!" in emails. I was a little hurt to not be included but decided it was probably just an oversight. I went to the party and didn't make it into a big deal.
Fast forward to this month, we have a departmental meeting which includes our office and several others in the same system. One of my coworkers is due to have a baby in July (D) and one is getting married in August (E). Our supervisor again organized a party within the meeting explicitly titled "Baby celebration for D and Wedding celebration for E" and has been collecting money for gifts. I am getting married in September and my supervisor is aware because she has asked me about it.
I can't help but feel excluded by this. I get along with everyone in the office including my supervisor. I would never expect a party for either of these occasions at work, but if they are going to be held for multiple people I would appreciate inclusion. Just not sure what to think. Maybe I'm being over sensitive and just need to hear it from objective sources.
I was also planning to invite all of my co workers to my wedding. Now I'm unsure.
Thanks for any help/tough love/advice in advance
