    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...

    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...

    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.

    Any kind of bullying isn't right. They are all wrong... But cyberbullying is just worse. Be a bully and just hurt someone through the net (and then, run)? Pfff, such a coward.
