Anyone else have to be the work wife at their office? Ya know, the person that the boos treats like crap every time he's in a bad mood? The kind of person who will belittle you as much as possible if it helps him get into a better mood. He's the kind that likes to reem you out a new "poo hole" when there's an audience there to listen. This is the kind of boss that you've been warned about time and time again. He's the kind that will joke and flirt and tease when he's in a good mood and then will stomp all over your self esteem and patience once he's ticked off. Anyone have to deal with this crap? Or am I the only one living in an alternate universe where it's okay to treat people like the crap they find on the bottom of their shoes? P.S. My mother also works here and we don't have a very healthy relationship. She usually tells me to just take it or find another job. We have had issues in the past where I've tried talking to her about things "boys" have done to me and she has told me "I bring it on myself." She says they wouldn't do things like that unless I provoked them. So obviously, she isn't a good person to vent to about.... ANYTHING. Uggghhh!! Okay, vent over. Feel free to judge and HUG.
