    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...

    Feeling Empowered Again After having been

    absent from my workplace for several months, and facing the possible necessity of having to return to it, I have had time and space to think over the bullying that happened there, why it happened, who was behind it and what they want to achieve. Before I go back, I wanted to...

    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...

    Wrongful Termination?

    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...

    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...

    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.

    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...

    The Scourge Of Workplace Bullying

    It is perpetrated by people who feel threatened by others. They feel they have a certain position in the workplace and when someone comes along who seems more competent or more intelligent, it becomes their mission to thwart and undermine that person as much as they can.  They...
