How I Overcame a Nightmare
I had spent the majority of my life dealing with bullying, from kindergarten all the way through college. As an adult you never think you will become the victim of bullying once again but that is exactly what happened to me.
I worked at a local Walmart in my area and the few first weeks were ok as I worked with someone who was very nice, but then I was switched to a different department. The girl who was supposed to be training me took an instant dislike to me and started belittling me. She soon made things a nightmare.
I was switched to another department and once again found myself a target of another bully. This was a woman who was older then me. I went in tears to my supervisors who immediately corrected the situation and then moved me to a different department.
I was made an overnight cashier and thought things would be different. I liked being a cashier but one of my supervisors started bullying me. I couldn't believe it here I was a grown woman who may have been a bit shy but worked hard and there she was the bully who was around my mothers age.
The bully immediately started in on me and began saying I was too stupid to be a cashier. She then started belittling me in front of my co-workers and then in front of the customers.
I had enough and went to my supervisors who documented it and spoke to her. It finally ended when she was caught trying to steal my work file and was fired. The bullying finally stopped and I was allowed to finally have some peace.
