    Be the bigger/better person. Dont say anything other than yes you are right. Move on. Do your hours and go home. Dont work evenings for her. Start to reclaim your own life one day at a time.

    Agree about not burning bridges.

    Just don't respond. At all. Whatever you hear from her, you'll have to let it go in one ear & out the other. Annoying as it is, you'll just have to let her sound like an idiot, while you literally say, not one word. The more she talks, the stupider she'll look to whoever she's talking to.

    I'd figure out a time where I'd stop working there. If you really don't need the money, how about stopping now? Or finding some part-time work somewhere else? Doesn't have to be a daycare, could be a nighttime retail job, just something to do.

    I'd get my little behind as far away from this toxic woman as possible.

    not immediately no... but business success is LONG-TERM, not immediate.
    like i said those SPECIFCI examples may not be IMMEDIATELY pertinent - they're just examples of why you don't burn bridges.

    Given this is a "professional" quarrel - your best course is to be the "better professional" here. Really.

    True. Just remain professional no matter how stupid she is being.

    I think I am really hurt because I considered her a friend and thought she respected and appreciated me. I come to find out when push comes to shove, no, she doesn’t. As my mom says the measure of character comes when the chips are down.

    I was so upset today it drove my blood pressure to 175/125.

    Is it really worth a few extra dollars to put up with all this? Including putting your health at risk?

    Probably not. Now I only work her 3 wed nights a month which she is not there for. Other than that I work for another dept at night that has nothing to do with her.

    I you are just working there to do it and not because you absolutely need the money, why do it? Why subject yourself to that? use the time in the evenings to have a date night, etc. Or find a hobby. Too much turmoil and you don't HAVE to deal with it, you know?
