No Sympathy For Horrible People
Today was an interesting day at work. Not so much for me as it was for my coworker. Someone we work with has a history of being not very nice and belittling others (I’m assuming) to make her feel better about herself. Other times, she will be very nice and funny; you can never be sure who you will get when she walks in the door.
She has great skill in twisting a person’s words to make them look like they are in the wrong. I have heard her deny she said something, even if there were several witnesses to her statement. She is also becoming increasingly paranoid about people wanting to take her job or get rid of her.
Today, she really pushed my coworker over the edge by accusing her of making her look bad in front of one of the therapists. They got into an argument, and she insisted my coworker move out of the office they share and into mine by Monday. All of her items were packed and in my/our office within a few hours.
There was also talk about possibly wanting to move the computer work station that my coworker and I use out of her office and into another office down the hall. I know she would love to see us inconvenienced in our daily work tasks.
I was telling another coworker what all went down, and how she had acted today; she said she felt sorry for her and it must be sad to live like that. I must say I cannot agree with her. I think if you repeatedly treat people like shit, then you will eventually get what you deserve. I do not feel sorry for a horrible person who gets off on humiliating her employees in front of others. Maybe this makes me a horrible person too.
I am, of course talking about my boss. I probably should not post something like this, but I had to vent.
On the upside, my coworker is happy and relieved to be out of that office and in with me now. She will not have to be unloaded on everyday.
