What Every Target of Workplace Bullying Needs to Know

Bullied At Work By Controlling, Passive-Aggressive Office Supervisor


I was supposed to be working as a supervisor with another office supervisor but she was a controlling person and very passive-aggressive. She used to spread rumors and gossip about me and try to humiliate me.

She would come in and tell me that my skirt was too short or put down my work. She would make mean comments over her shoulder as she walked away from me. She would explode with rage and scream at me from down the hallway.

Once she became angry that I had not included her friends in an after-hour event I was hosting for some students and she came marching down and made a scene in front of them then screamed at me all the way to court the next day. She was very aggressive and hostile and I frequently felt sick at the thought of coming to work.

When I complained to our boss she either did nothing or just told me that this person had suffered a hard childhood. I am a generally happy and outgoing person and she hated that about me. I am also very strong and outgoing but a person can only take so much.

Eventually, she was able to make up enough lies to get me transferred out of the office.
