Under A Tyrannical Boss For Ten Years And Glad My Job Was Outsourced.

Each morning I wake up the very first thought to pop into my head is Thank God, I no longer have to go to GB today.

No more hateful boss.
No more back stabbing peers - they were all nice people but management, managed their people by pitting everyone below them against each other - it is how the few control the many.

There are a couple good books I highly recommend for people going through workplace bullying and now with the economy the way it is, to have a job at all many people are suffering from workplace bullying.

These four books are really worth getting.

- Bully In Sight by Tim Field

- Mobbing Emotional Abuse in the American Workplace by Noa Davenport, Ruth Distler Schwartz and Gail Pursell Elliott

- Surviving Your Boss How To Cope With Office Politics and Get On With Your Job by Ann D. Clark and patt Perkins

- Dealing With People You Can't Stand by Dr. Rick Brinkman & Dr. Rick Kirschner

Workplace bullying.............I am retired early. My job was outsourced two years ago and good riddance.

The Mobbing book is also very good because if your boss shows a dislike for you, in order for your fellow employees to survive him/her, they will not show they like you except in private.

We would go out to lunch (mandatory) and they would all sit away from me.

We had to go to a casino for a outing (mandatory) and they all hid from me, I found them and just turned around and went home.

I still nightmare about my boss and some of my co-workers.

Worked for this company for 16 years to be outsourced and it was a true blessing.

I would not go back to work if it meant being homeless and starving.

Now my husband has a good job and he works at a place where the people are nice, but he is also upper management where I was simply another administrative assistant.

My heart goes out to each and everyone of you that has to go to work everyday and face the hatefulness, the bullying, the eating away at your soul agony of what the workplace is (in most places).

Some of it has to do with people politics of which I'm not good at.

I like being alone, I like thinking deep thoughts, reading and researching various topics.

For me, in my previous company, it was the young pretty employees that had the advantages - the older ones (and we lose our beauty with age) got treated like dirt.

My boss would make Tim Burton's Red Queen in Alice In Wonderland look like Mother Teresa.

She rivaled Hitler and in my previous private company, she was not checked on by her superior. The higher you get in this company, the less you are watched as long as your department makes a profit.

I went to HR about some of the comments another Manager that is under her made to me and the HR person said, "Work it out with your manager" Well she and this other manager had both lived together for awhile and were personal friends.

The comment was about my hearing disability - "XX hears what she wants to hear and ignores what she doesn't want to hear - she is also afraid to drive." This was said to two new employees in our group on our way out to one of our mandatory lunches

I have less money now, do not collect any unemployment or food stamps but I am so much happier not being in a office with it's politics and sneaky underhanded smile at you while stabbing you in the back people.

People, in order to survive will do some pretty hateful things.
