    I Hate Bullying

    When I was at school I suffered a lot from bullying and it left me with a deep hatred for it. Whenever I see it at work I get very angry and I've been in a few fights over it. Unfortunately, administration sometimes prefers to turn a blind eye rather than admit there is a problem...

    Was made fun of by the ******* in my office

    today. How can I not be depressed? Apart from people difficult to work with in my own team, I have been tolerating gossip targeting me from ******* of another team but sitting next to me, for 8 months already, almost every day. I want to quit. No more excuse to stay.

    How To Turn Workplace Bullying/ Prejudice To Your Advantage?

    Nope, I have no idea how to. I am a victim myself. In fact I was a victim today, for the umpteenth time. As much I got angry, abusive, irritated, disappointed, demotivated, used, fooled, prejudiced, lost in thought, feeling sad about my life, not given due recognition that I...

    Insight Please?

    My manager constantly swears at people in a degrading manner. He has been known to let his wrath out on people. He just comes up to you in the middle of the office - open plan - and starts calling you an F-ing C* and such names with no constructiveness to it at all. No 'you've...

    This woman at work bullies me

    and no matter what I say or do, she doesn't stop it. I don't know how to deal with her anymore. She tells me what to do even though she's not my boss. Her tone of voice is angry and aggressive. There have been a number of times when she has come up and said to me "Sunburst, you...

    I was bullied out of a job.

    I only had it for two weeks too. It was one of those annoying 'sales' jobs where the company you work for is outsourced to fundraise for charities and organisations and such. The system was weird and I personally would have done it differently. Anyway, this girl hated me for...

    My Last Job Was Crawling With Sociopaths

    At my last job, I was there for 2 years. My first year was nearly perfect. I got along with everyone there, was liked, performed well, etc. Then, in the middle of the second year, I was basically harrassed by another person on the job and decided to press charges. Because this...
