    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...

    Isolated And Ignored

    I started working at my job towards the end of February of this year. I love and enjoy what I do, and it feels great to know it makes a positive difference in the lives of others. In the first few months, I went in with no stress and felt comfortable around my coworkers. Everyone...

    I find it absolutely disgusting to say the

    least! I find bullying in kids utterly cruel and despicable, bullying in teenagers completely unacceptable, but when you get to a full grown adult in your 30's and your still finding people belittling you coz your not 'the way everyone else is' and dont go out for an office...

    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.

    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...
