Work colleague texting every night

Susan, 2 months ago

I'm unsure how to handle a work colleague related situation and looking for some advice. The colleague, who I work in close proximity to for 40 hours a week, has gotten into the habit of texting me all night. The texts are usually work related but sometimes other irrelevant stuff. I'm getting irritated by it now and didn't want her to have my number in the first place. She's also double my age.

I consider her a work colleague, not a friend. When I come home the last thing I want to think about is work. She's also not like this with anyone else at work. I like to keep work and private life totally separate. I also don't like texting at the best of times.

How would you deal with this situation?
