HealingHandsWarmHeart Posted March 26, 2007 Share Posted March 26, 2007 I'm in desparate need of advice on how to deal with a situation at work. I work in a very small office (6 people) with a woman who flies off the handle every chance she gets. Pretty much the entire office walks on eggshells around her when she gets in a "mood". She is a VP so she does hold a position of authority. Friday, she flipped on me... cursing...telling me i dont know how to do my job...etc etc. I came in this morning and was greeted with a "good morning" from her ..i said good morning ...but just kinda dry ... like morning.. not to be rude ..cause that sets her off ...well she apparently she didn't like the way i said good morning either ..because she told me to "get over it" and then said .."lets go handle this now" and walked into our bosses office and said "looks like i need you now" apparently, she gave him some story that i didn't complete a job well on friday and when she "had a talk" with me about it..i got upset. Which wasn't true. she wouldn't let me talk..kept talking over me...finally my boss said that he needed to talk to us individually. After she left the room...he told me that he believed me and basically said "thats her..thats how she is and we've all basically learned to deal with it." On a side note, she has had it out for this woman Natalie since the day i started and has pretty much made her life a living heck. Well, needless to say i'm looking for a new job. I dont want to go to work everyday and wonder when i'm going to be verbally attacked. My question is...in the meantime... how the heck do i deal with this woman? the office being so small... communication is necessary, i often will do little projects for her, and you never know what is going to set her off. how do i keep my sanity while dealing with this woman?
