Something that drives me crazy at work. [View all]

I just have to ask people what they think of a person who behaves like this. Am I too sensitive or is this person being passive aggressive and if so, why are they doing this?

I have a manager who is generally a nice person, but he is always making comments about innocuous little things I do. For instance, today, we got into an elevator together, with a very senior boss from HQ and he said "Oh, there's SM again with her Iced Tea, she's always drinking iced tea." Meanwhile, he pounds coffee from morning until he leaves until the end of the day. I have maybe two large iced teas a day and dilute them with water as they run down.

He also comments on how I always have a water bottle at my desk, plus an iced tea, and "there I am again having soup for lunch", etc. He is constantly making stupid little comments on thing like that, which have no bearing on my performance or anything else I do at work. Or like, oh, "I see you like wearing dark gray sweaters a lot, etc."

I mean, who fucking cares? I don't know why he does this. Is he being passively hostile? Why do people comment on things like that? I would never say anything like that to anyone. It's none of my business on what people eat, drink or wear, etc.

It's really been driving me up a wall lately. He kind of has a bit of a nerdy personality, and I have known other people like him who always have to comment on things you do that are of absolutely no consequence and I don't understand why they do it.

Just wondering if anyone has any insight, because I'm starting to get very angry about it and I don't want it to jeopardize my job.
