I am definitely an awkward person and I can be hard on myself at times, but I feel that I’m at a point now where I am comfortable with who I am.
These comments usually pertain to things completely irrelevant. They’re just being flat out mean.
A little back story: my former boss (who now works as a regular employee) started saying things about me to other coworkers (she does this to others as well) before she resigned. She started claiming that when I was having complications in my pregnancy that I was faking it to not work, which doesn’t make any sense because I don’t get paid to not work. She tried to bully me in to working anyway, threatened to fire me, and gave me the silent treatment when I returned . She also has blamed things on me that are not my responsibility. Her favorite activity is telling everyone that I’m crazy and to loudly say it while I’m in the room. I have not acted in any way (besides being a little awkward) to give her this impression. The worst part about it is that over the past 3 months she’s convinced my new boss (they were already friends before she started her position) that everything I do is weird/crazy. She’s a bully and in tired of it!
My job is very important to me and how I behave is equally as important. The kind of treatment I’ve been putting up with over the past 2 1/2 years is ridiculous, and I can’t just up and quit.
