Some people say having friends/relationships with people at work is critical to your success and some people think you're sucking up. Should we have work friends?
I worked a shop where we'd go out and bike and bowl and stuff with our store manager. I didn't really like him, but thought I had to (because everyone else did.)
It would not be worth your time at this time. While I worked at Shop Rite I was harassed continuously by an old black man that worked there for years after I reported his sleazy self to management they covered up for him and enabled him to screw with me. I was them retaliated against by all members of management being written up numerous times, being verbally disrespected to my face and behind my back, I had my hours cut, they switched my shift and refused to give me my original shift back then they finally fired me. I reported them to CHRO and the real investigation begins, I am going to clean up the store so that future employees will have a fair and equal employment opportunity free from harassment, retaliation, and favoritism.
So I have been working this job that I love. I love working with patients in any and all capacity. But there is this one person on the job,not even an employee,but a contract,who really gets on my nerves. She has hollered at me several times,and I told her several times not to. She talks about her imaginary man allllllll day long. This man wants her,that man wants her! It is quite annoying,and her demeanor makes me think she is a dike. Not that I have anything against gay people,but her demeanor really makes me want to f'"^ her up,but I know violence isn't the answer. I have tried being civi,ignoring her,etc. But she just won't quit? I am at my witts end,and I am determined she is not going to trick me into getting fired!
Thing is, I really can't write a letter of recommendation for her in good conscience. Is there a good,generic way to word it? I hate that she has been out of work as long as she has. We were both let go in 2012, which means she has been unemployed for almost 5 years. I want to help her but if she gets back to her old tricks, I'm afraid that company will wonder what on Earth I was thinking!
I have a question to throw out there...... How would you handle a co-worker that thinks she's your boss?? I've began to basically ignore her. I work through a temp agency where I am, so I'm looking for something else but just wondered what some of you out there would handle this?
