Friend Of Boss An Obnoxious Bully
My boss, the practice manager and owner's wife, has appointed her best friend as her "assistant" to act as the manager when she is out of the office.
This friend is an obnoxious bully who questions everyone and everything and runs back to tattle on anything she can. She has no experience or qualifications to be a manager and is the type to have to cut down others to make herself look better.
She badmouths everyone behind their back, ruffles the boss's feathers over non-issues, and then we are "scolded" like children.
We all feel very bullied and cannot go to the boss... this is her best friend and she will defend her to the death.
Besides quitting, do any of us have any other options?
