The summer suddenly came in Germany and like in the past years my coworkers commented something like:
"Ahh, did you bring this beautiful weather with you to work, my sunshine?"
when I entered the building. ( I am not sure if this is weird in english, but in the german language this is a pretty normal phrase, not between coworkers but still.)
Usually I answer something like: "Yes, as always!"
To be clear, I don't think of it as harassment. I am the only female person so I am used to it and I really don't mind the weird "compliments" I sometimes get.
What really bothers me about it, is that I have a strong allergic reaction to sun light. And the summertime is my least favorite time of the year. I have to wear long sleeves all the time. This allergy gets worse, every year. And hearing this every day is kinda exhausting. I am not mad at them, and I don't want to sound stuck up. It is my fault that I reacted so positivly in the past, but I didn't know I would be confornted with it every day.
I don't want to sound rude. I want to make clear that I did not mind in the past, but I rather have it stop. I want to make clear that it is not the "compliment" part that annoys me, but the fact how it reminds me of my allergy.
