    I have to work with this woman from another department. I have decided I don't like her. Why? Because she treats me like dirt.

    This morning I sent an email to a guest speaker, "R", who is talking next week. R has a very unusual name. It turns out that there are 2 speakers with this exact same unusual name. It also turns out that the email I sent to "R" was to the wrong "R". It was an honest, and easy mistake. I was told by the woman I work with, though, that:

    It would be good if you used the e-mail address I use to prevent this confusion again, as I now will have to e-mail R-2 and explain the (embarrassing) mistake. One reason I decided to write the follow-ups was to keep the personal link, as there were so many cancellations last quarter which resulted in hours and hours of extra work.

    Earlier this week she told me that she didn't trust the roster last year and that she'll do it herself. This same woman complained to my boss last month about all the extra work she has to do. That roster was checked twice! She says that she doesn't trust the people who listen to the speakers to sign themselves in. The people are adults and should be treated as such: they need to manage themselves rather than be managed.

    She makes everything so complicated!!

    This woman is constantly slapping my hand and acting like I'm some dumb dog who peed on the rug. She tells these people that I'm going to bring them a parking pass and doesn't acknowledge my department, which relies on these speakers for other things. She has so utterly & completly demeaned my position in my workplace that I may as well not be there.

    Today I was reduced to tears by her constant haranguing and unpredictability. I'm not easily perturbed but this was the final straw. I told my boss, who has the authority to change this assignment (i.e. remove the other person from it) that I won't work with her anymore. She agreed & called the person's behavior "abusive".

    I'm going to get chocolate, because a gun in my hands would not be a good idea.​

    I'm glad you talked to your boss. People like that really tick me off. [​IMG] Hopefully things will go better for you now on. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Whew! Sorry you're experiencing that. One person is all it takes to ruin a job situation. I hope it gets ironed out and she straightens up.[​IMG]

    Oh, and I recommend Lindors truffles. [​IMG]

    Dealing with my boss I need the chocolate and the wine and the hiding under the desk (but she'd find me anyway). Good thing friday is around the corner.
