I just saw a post on PostSecret. It said, "I'm bullied more at my job than I *ever* was in high school." What the hell is wrong with people? Why can't we all be adults and get along? I'll never understand it. I treat people the way I want to be treated and I can't believe how some people can be mean to others.

Just got approved for my unemployment since my former boss didn't have anything to validate his claim of misconduct. I wasn't worried about it, I was just super pissed off that he did that.

I got into an argument with a bully at work and someone came to talk to me about how I handled it, saying "I've noticed that you are having problems with a lot of people." I finally just said, "Are you talking to her too? Because she's rude all the time, and everyone knows it." She acknowledged that, yes, several people on the staff are rude, but she still seems to think I'm the problem and that I need to learn to "work around it". I think I've realized that this place is toxic and that I need to leave. I am not the problem. There are other spaces where I am valued and respected, and I don't have interpersonal problems there. In those spaces I get work done with a diverse group of people and I don't have to walk on eggshells. I'll say it- I am popular and well-liked in other spaces. I don't deserve to be treated this way, and I shouldn't have to put up with it. Unfortunately, the window for applying for a transfer this year has passed, so I still have another year in this hell hole.

So my bully coworker was out at a conference all week and I had to handle everything. I think I did well. Plus, one of my other coworkers told me that he doesn't get along with my coworker either and that he's kind of a jerk to anyone who isn't in his "group". I felt better after that. I swear it's only him that hates me because the rest of the people I work with think I'm a great asset. I'll stay around because I think there's a possibility of a lateral move or a promotion and then I won't be working with him directly anymore.

I'm in the process of validating Excel sheets for a project at work. I find it strangely hypnotic. It appeals to my OCD and I could easily do it for hours straight. I kind of like Excel anyway--I love to think of cool logic and conditional formatting to make the sheets super easy to use and fairly idiot proof.

In response to a confession. My son developed an allergy to apples (then carrots and celery) when he was 10 - he'd get hives all over his face and neck, his lips would swell and tongue would be itchy. The allergist explained that enzymes in certain fruits and vegetables react with airborne pollens. The thing is, those enzymes are broken down during cooking. Ds can be around those things and even eat them if they're cooked with no reaction - he eats applesauce every day. While your manager's reaction *sounds* a little over the top, keep in mind that there are people whose allergies to, say nuts, are so severe that they can't even be in the same room as their trigger.

Our manager "claims" to have an apple allergy so nobody can have them or applesauce at work. She says it's airborne what bothers her. I 'd like to know she does she walk through a produce dept at a grocery store? I think she'a a faker.

Oh, how I don't care. I don't want to hear about your vacations. You don't realize that every time you give me a raise they take all of it and more in student loan payments. I will never, ever, ever get ahead. I will owe student loan money until I'm dead. I will probably be working until I'm dead. I know, I know. Not your problem and you don't want to hear about it. Likewise, I don't want to hear about your fancy vacations or the fact that all three of your small children have their own laptops and ipads and iphones and shit. Please shut up. The resentment and jealousy feels like it's physically crushing me.

In response to a confession. I just went thru this myself. Small companies tend to fire the bullying victim when they complain. My boss was bullying me and I went to higher management- no HR in this small company. They briefly had me work in another dept, then I was let go with no explanation. Please look for another job before YOU end up unemployed.

I'm also dealing with a bully at work and I work for a small company. I brought it to my boss and she claims I am being too emotional. Honestly, I've been trying to just document incidents where he's being a bully. He's gotten better lately, but I will continue to document and if it gets bad, I'm going to look for a different job. No job is worth sacrificing your sanity for.
