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.

When I worked for a call center I had a customer complain to the manager about me because I do not speak Spanish. How about him learning English?

In response to a confession. I used to work for a very well-known, global company. We had a very strict call-out policy. Three "sick" incidents in a year would get you a write up and on probation. Any calls outs during probation would result in termination. That being said, I had a coworker who was approved to take FMLA for her chronic sinus infections due to the nature of our job. She didn't abuse it, but she did end up getting fired when she went on a short trip to a third-world country with friends on her days off, and got sick and couldn't fly home in time for work. The company accused her of lying so she could stay - alone - in this country a few more days.
