Called in today because I didn't sleep at all. This is my 5th absence in the last 7 months. I know that sounds bad but I'm at work 98% of the time. I know I'll get called in and written up. A few of my co-workers who have medical condtions, call in alot, are on medical leaves for having surgery get excused because of FMLA. They won't get written up or terminated. I think it's unfair that healthy (or somewhat healthy) people get screwed over. We at least show up for work.

If you're going to question every detail of all the work that I do, at least please TRY to do it close to the time I do the actual work. When you questions the minutia of my job three weeks after I've done it, and you have all the source documents in your office, how the fuck am I supposed to answer your questions without coming into your office and reviewing all the shit I did three weeks ago? No, actually I don't remember how f*cked up that client's AP was before I worked on it. Three weeks ago. I mean, you asked me if it was right and I said yes, then you asked a bunch more questions. Then you told me AR didn't change when it did. Then you wanted the back-up. Then, of course, my computer freezes up and I can't open the file to make you a back-up. Remember when you said you were going to get me a new computer before tax season? No? I didn't think so.

I used to work at a law firm and my cubicle was at the front of the room. Everyone who came off the elevator walked by my desk. My supervisor once called me in because one woman (who I admit I didn't like) complained that I never looked up from my computer to say good morning to her, and it hurt her feelings. I asked why I had to be the welcoming committee. Luckily my boss had a sense of humor.

My bully coworker was mostly a bully because he was having issues with his girlfriend dumping him. So he took it out on me and wouldn't respond to me when I said "bye" at the end of the day either. I thought it was super rude of him, but I also didn't push it. The funny thing is that the men around here are way more emotional than any of the women I work with.

99 out of 100 times I ignore her rudeness and turn the other cheek. I was all out of cheeks.

In response to a confession. Not excusing her outburst, but why would you speak that way to someone if you know they're crabby? Sounds like you just wanted to get a rise out of her and you got what you wanted. I wouldn't want to work with either of you.

In response to a confession. If you knew she was going to explode, why did you go back and (clearly, sarcastically) tell her bye again? You were being petty to someone with an attitudinal problem to provoke her. People like you two are why I hate going to work. You both need to grow up.

In response to a confession. I understand that saying "goodbye" again is what set her off. Still think it's unreasonable, and when I find another job and quit, I will let the boss know that the front office staff is one of the reasons. She's a terrible manager for allowing this to continue and expecting people to put up with it. I am using networking and inside information to find a workplace where people treat each other more respectfully. When things go wrong between co-workers, you need to either a) work it out or 2) move on like adults. I've tried both with her. I'm done. After this blow up, I emailed my boss, cc'ing her higher-up, and reminded her that our company policy is to schedule using google calendar. I shouldn't have to schedule through her assistant. The boss invited me to do scheduling on Friday, and neither of us brought up the argument I had with her assistant, even though I used the words "hostile work environment" in my email. I'm done. I don't let people treat me like this.

In response to a confession. I think what the other poster means is that when you said "bye" the first time and she didn't respond, you should have left it at that. Seriously. Saying it again, and louder, absolutely provoked her. With people like her, you definitely need to walk on eggshells. Is it right or fair that you have to? Nope, not at all, and I've been in this position myself. But you either have to accept that this is the way it is, or find another job. In the meantime, don't do or say anything to set her off.

In response to a confession. It is unreasonable to expect people to walk on eggshells around someone because they "have a short fuse." It means the rest of us need to have an even longer fuse. Any reasonable request can make her explode, and that's fine. The rest of us should just walk on tiptoes and ignore it I suppose.
