Is the Green-Eyed Monster in Your Cubicle?

On The Job

The green-eyed monster now rears itself not on the playground, but in the cubicle. When I was in grade school, every year I had to put up with someone I'll call "Mary" in my classes. I never liked her, because her hair was longer than mine, she dressed better than I did and she was much prettier. Yet, every year -- from kindergarten until sixth grade -- I had her in every class. Some day the jealousy I felt when she showed up in a new hair bow with a pretty dress made me seethe.
