Bully Says, "Any Monkey Can Do What You Do"
This week is a year I left a govt company for another with a longer contract for job security purposes. Before accepting the position I was warned of the individual I'd be working with. My response was "I can get along with anybody". Well, this individual has demeaned me, placed ridiculous rules on work, and as of three weeks ago said "any monkey can do what you do". I have 42 pages of comments I have endured since coming here a year ago.
After the monkey comment I asked HR for help. Well, they did nothing and told me I have to deal with people like that at times, that it is a job. I have an appt. with the Bus Ops director over HR next week, and will take it high as need be. All I have asked was to be moved from the small area we sit in together. Now I get silent treatment while she is openly nice to EVERYONE around. My Manger says I shouldn't let it bother me since I don't want her to talk to me anyway...?
Well, gotta go... what do you do with a total witch?
