What Every Target of Workplace Bullying Needs to Know

Bullying and Playing with My Phobias

by Dixie

I work in the office of a manufacturer in the Midwest. I have a deep phobia regarding snakes, I get physically ill when I see one. My co-workers know this and yet they think it is funny to constantly bring black snakes into my office. I only have one door, so escape is futile. Please help me figure out what to do before I end up in the hospital with a heart attack.

Dear Dixie,

Anyone who plays games regarding snakes just to pee you off, needs to be reported. I suggest you find someone in charge of you and have a discussion about their actions.
Because of this deep fear you have with snakes, you may also want to go see someone who deals in past lives. That may explain your phobia and also get some history on your past, when you were a toddler for example. I am an older woman now, but I was always afraid of fire, then my mother when she was alive told me a story. She said that at three years old, my grandmother left me unassisted. I fell and my hand went into the fire, burning two of my fingers. So get some info you may be surprised to learn why, because to every act there is a reason behind it.
