What Every Target of Workplace Bullying Needs to Know

Being Different Results In Workplace Bullying

by Jennifer
(Lansing, MI)

So, I work with almost all females and I had been told by a so-called friend/co-worker that no one likes me in the department. If she is telling me this about them what is she tell them about me?

Things seem to be getting worse instead of better. I come home crying all the time and I not sure what to do anymore. I am not sure how to make things right. I don't even know what I am doing wrong.

They do leave me out of all the decision making. Yes, that makes me upset because why was I not included in them as well? I am not very good with my words or explaining things at all and I am not very good at standing up for myself.

The other day my coworker/so-called friend comes up to me and says I wasn't trying to be a B.I.T.C.H. and I said you kind of were. Mind you I don't say words like that I have a hard enough time spelling them out. I just kind of agreed with her. So, I said why do we agree to disagree and she said seriously. Yea, thinking that it was no big deal. Next thing I know she is storming off and she is crying and she is going around telling everyone that I called her a B.I.T.C.H.

So, I started crying no I didn't I can't even say words like that: So, I called my dad and told him what happen and he started laughing and he said so technically she called herself a B.I.T.C.H. and yes I agreed and then she played the victim to make me look bad.

That is just one of the things she has done. She has done other things to other people on another team. Those other people said they would go to HR with me. What should I do?
