    Anybody have them?

    Day after i came home from vacation, my boss was rushed to the hospital and had an emergency operation. They decided to make me acting manager while she's gone.

    Well, this pissed off a coworker (who was on sick leave when it all happened due to a stroke), who thinks it should be her getting the hours because she's been here longer, and now whenever she DOES work, she does the stupidest things just to be spiteful and **** me off. Like hide the plug for the dishwasher so it's a pain to use. Or steal the bottle opener so I don't have one (or so she thinks, I have an extra hiding). Or completely falsifies the inventory so I have to redo it..

    If you are acting manager, manage. Don't allow it.

    The "main boss" is a volunteer that isn't even qualified as a bartender. The coworker in question quickly resorted to bullying the volunteer and the volunteer refuses to speak to her anymore.

    She knows it's going on. She laughs and says "I've done all I can". Or tells me to tell talk to her husband (who then says he's going to talk to her when she's in, and I'm not sure what comes of it).

    There's no option of anything else I can do. I do all the manager duties, but thats about it. They won't fire people here (I'm fighting on that one with other coworkers -- they don't bother doing interviews so we get not-the-best employees)

    We had this woman, spiteful female pooch and proud of it. Some people you just have to tolerate to some degree. I usedta be sickly sweet and ask her advice on how things were supposed to be done, she'd stare at me then get all flustered i wouldn't rise to her bait...eventually she found other departments to bully

    What are your "manager duties"? If one of them is scheduling, this person would find themselves working about 2 hours a week. From midnight to 2 on a Wednesday.

    I have one here as well. She's an older lady that basically thinks that she can do everyone's job better than they can and then tried to pass off her work onto other people while she surfs the internet.

    She does the accounts here so her office has customer payment info and work related finance info and she has basically told another co-worker ,who I am friends with, that I sit on her computer every night after she leaves and look for confidential information. The sad thing is that I don't even know the password to her computer! This stemmed after an incident where I asked her a question and she was trying to find something related to the question. I was basically staring off into space while she was looking for whatever it was and then she told me not to look at her computer screen because it has confidential info on it.

    Every problem that we have with orders (regardless if the supplier screwed up) is my fault right off the bat and she gets mad when my other co-worker defends me when he knows for a fact that it is not my fault.

    From day 1 she has basically treated me like I am a spy for the competition sent to single handily bankrupt the company and it is her goal to stop me.

    She also likes to think that she's the boss (it's a small company and we each have our own sections to look after) and doesn't understand that if our actual boss tells her to make sure stuff is done, he is also telling everyone else the same thing.

    She's actually part of the reason that I'm going back to school. I've dealt with her for over 4 years and I'm tired of it. I know that there are people like this everywhere but it's gotten to the point where I just can't tolerate her any longer. I have no problem with anyone else I work with.

    The funny thing is that they've hired a new girl to do my job who I am training (I'll be going to school in September and still working here part time for extra cash but the new girl will be taking over my day to day work). On the last pay she slipped a little post-it note onto my check telling me not to discuss my current salary with the new girl and telling the new girl not to discuss her salary with me (I know this because the new girl told me), meanwhile she'd already discussed the new girl's salary with my other co-worker!

    I work for a small facility and my coworker was recently fired for many wrong doings. She however is telling clients and coworkers alike that I got her fired through spiteful actions.

    Some days I really hate people.

    The worst part is, this lady absolutely adored me before it all happened. I didn't even know what was going on when she first started the bullshit. Maybe had she like, used words, rather than bad mouthing me to my customers, I would have went better for her ;)

    Yah she's already getting limited hours, mainly because she is now refusing to work her normal shifts, but complaining she needs to work more cause she has no money. Once my boss is back, she's staying very limited or she's gone.

    I don't know why so many work places are so dysfunctional. Probably just because there are a lot of a-holes out there. Fortunately, that kind of stuff simply would not fly at my current workplace. But I've certainly BTDT.

    Nothing worse than spiteful coworkers. My last manager was very spiteful and threatened by me. Made my work life so miserable that I had to go to HR and file a complaint against her. She was the kind of person who would take your ideas and make them hers. She'd shoot them down, then go to upper management and make them think they were her's. In the 4 years that I was there she had fired 5 people, for crappy reasons. When I gave notice because a much better paying job was offered to me the big green monster got even bigger.

    I could't get out of there fast enough, thankfully I still have really good contacts at that company so I can use them as a reference again if I ever need them.

    The real manager, who is off sick, adores me, luckily, and knows that they couldn't do it without me -- they were majorly screwed while I was on vacation, and that was only a week. Really everyone knows it, they just don't want to admit that a 21 year old is holding the bar together ;)

    Try a legal office. Oh HELL. All the bitches vying to be the attorney's pet . . .

    I had someone in the office of the attorney I did free lance research for who would get do her best to get her hands on the files I'd leave for the attorney, get rid of them, then tell him I'd collected pay for work I never turned in.

    Then there was the crazy bitch in the music store who tried to set the other women working there up by stealing out of our registers and falsifying refund info, not to mention her dope dealing on the side, and then there was the involvement in a brutal murder . . . and the week and a half after the boss got out of the hospital, after almost dying with appendicitis because his wife's boyfriend was the radiologist and the film of his ruptured appendix disappeared when she literally drugged him and kidnapped him. Tony'd caught the wife and boyfriend after his mother (who worked at the hospital) overheard them discussing the missing film and was taking off from the store to go find them and Angie managed to convince him she'd help him, drugged him, and took him to her house and kept him loopy for a week and a half. He finally came to enough to call while she was gone . . . True.

    People you work with can be BATSHIT CRAZY!

    You could base a mystery novel off of that and people would be all like, "yeah right, that would never happen in real life." :rofl1:

    I know, right? :rofl1:

    But I can use her and some of her antics in a book I've been doing character sketches for off and on for several years. ;)

    She propositioned just about everyone who worked there -- including one of the other girls who totally freaked out. She tried to get her to come over and watch pron flicks with her. I had a little issue with her habit of copping a feel and rubbing up against me every time she'd squeeze behind the counter where I was working.

    She always wanted to put out the new CDs too, but couldn't get them in alphabetical order. I got tired of fixing it and put Tony (the manager) up to making her recite the alphabet the next time she started whining about wanting to work on stock day.

    The reason she wanted to work with the new stock was because she was stealing :rolleyes:

    I hate working with women.....

    Sorry Ladies :)

    Prior to this job, I had always worked with men.... Not saying they don't have their problems but they tend to sort them out fast and quick and not hold a grudge!

    The women I work with now are spiteful, vengeful, jealous, nasty!!!!

    If I was not in a coveted public sector job that pays too well to walk away from, No way I'd still be here over 6 years later!!!

    I'm so lucky to have never had this issue, and all of the women I've worked with have been lovely. :]

    I've watched others deal with this crap, though, and it's baffling. I'm sorry you're going through this; it must be infuriating.

    We had one woman on another job with the personality of a rock, and that's being kind. Same thing though, I know she was hurtin' for money and working multi jobs but she got almost forty hours and the rest of us got 2...5...10...a week. Think everyone except her quit eventually.
