She used to try to consider herself a friend. That was until I had to go out of town and asked her to mail something for me while I was out. She complained to the GM and then gave me the cold shoulder when I returned.
All for what? Because I asked her to take 2 seconds out of her day to mail something I had completely put together? Rock star I tell ya.
The team she was on when she came on board despised her. She was a mole. A rat. Constantly watching what everyone else was doing instead of focusing on her own position.
She moved from that team when she couldn’t take their complaining any more and joined another team in our company. Things just got worse.
This department basically took care of everything, whether or not it was feasible for them to do so. Wanted any supplies? She kept them locked up like the supply natzi she was. If you needed anything from her all you ever got was a snotty response.
During her transition from team to team, I had switched positions as well. Oh no. Not because I couldn’t hack what I was doing. Not because I was getting complaints. Because it was the right career move for me at the time. Oh and the manager of my new department approached me about taking the position.
I was in my new position for about a year. They brought on a new director for my co- worker from hell
and guess what? She was pissed she didn’t get the director position. Never mind that she wasn’t
qualified for it. Time for another move.
To my department.
I warned my boss. Told my boss she wouldn’t be able to cut this position. She would fail miserably. But my boss felt for some odd reason that with the right direction, she would transform.
Not so much.
On a daily basis, I have to listen to her cackling. Her constantly talking about how healthy she eats, when pretty much every day she has no less than 3 cans of Coke (regular Coke) on her desk and eats at such fine establishments as McDonalds, Moe’s, Chick Fil A (I can’t knock that one…it’s one my guilty pleasures if I’m feeling naughty. God, I need to get a life….Chick Fil A, naughty?)
If you’re going to eat that like, at least own up to it. She’s no lightweight. We’re not stupid, I can see your clothes don’t fit. But no, she watches what everyone else eats and then tries to say how we’re being bad. She must be delusional.
She is constantly rude to other employees on the phone. In fact, just last Friday night I heard her saying to another employee that her word is gospel and that if it comes from her mouth, everyone should listen.
Really, when did you become God?
She abuses our admin too. She treats her like she’s less than part of the team because she’s in an administrative role. The way I look at, the admin probably does far more work then any of us do! She gives our admin all the mundane stuff that she doesn’t want to do on her own, complaining how busy she is that’s why she passes it off.
Busy? Really? I hear you on the phone. Calling your day care at least 2-3 times per day. Setting up birthday parties. Talking to your mother. Talking to your sister. I am not deaf. Sitting there talking to another teammate about how your baby farted and it was the cutest thing. EVAH…I could puke, really.
One day she started the whole territory comparison thing. Oh how many people do you have now? I gave my number and she goes, oh, well all of mine are for real, unlike yours. You have so many part time people so they don’t count. Ha! What a joke, my part time employees take up most of my time. And the truth is, you couldn’t handle it if there were any more added to your territory. Hence the fact that you have been doing this for two years and you still have the smallest territory. Do you not see that?
Then she got in trouble for processing something that she shouldn’t have. Instead of saying whoops, my mistake, she says, oh my teammates told me I could do that. Not one of us did she ask, because well know the answer, she shouldn’t have processed that.
She didn’t want to participate in this function I had put together. So instead of her being the one who was vocal about it, she told me boss that two other teammates didn’t want to participate either, but they were too afraid to tell me.
She has no idea what she’s doing. Asks the dumbest questions and never, I mean never, volunteers to help out on any additional projects that might come up.
She is definitely not sunshine and rainbows. Negative Nelly is what I should call her.
It’s getting harder and harder each day to not get angry. It’s so frustrating working with someone who complains constantly over the smallest things. She makes people feel bad and honestly, this may seem mean, but karma is a bitch. It’ll all pay forward one day. I just hope I’m around to see it.
Can anyone relate? Have any advice for me? Let me know in comments.
