Higher Education Hell
I have worked in higher education for years. I accepted my present position to escape a serious bullying environment that was not adequately addressed by management only to land in a worse situation. I'm being bullied constantly.
It is so 2nd grade. Comments about my appearance and clothing. Then they start picking apart everything I do -- if I try to ask for help to fix mistakes then I'm told I "ask too many questions".
I am more educated than most of them. A fact they seem to hate. I had hoped to retire from this place, but I don't know if I can last. It really wears you down.
I've talked to my boss and while sympathetic -- he has spoken to the head bully, but it is still going on. I'm beginning to think that the woman doing this bullying is mentally ill.
