You know when you go to work - and you think people are being nice to you? Then you find out you've been thrown under a bus? Well how about when the bus runs over you to the point that it could cost you your job? How special? I have so many other large things going on in my life, I really didn't need the hassle of an inquiry or the question of my credibility with numerous people in the organization I work for brought up, but golly I work with an immature woman in her late 40's. Who openly admitted (for the stupidest reasons) she is jealous of me, and wants me gone. All along smiling at my face, supposedly helping me as my manager, mentors and giving me incorrect information, the 'hey whose going to know we all do it' bend the rules jargon, and the ultimate tattle tale - when I had NO idea what I did was wrong. She's also managed to drag another swayable mid-30's gal into her fold, and wow doesn't the party get fun from there. Since I've started with this company one woman in particular has made it most unpleasant to work with. She's bossy, overbearing, usurps her little bit of authority, throws her weight around. Puts everyone down, enjoys and I mean gets ABSOLUTELY giddy when she can get someone in trouble,and revels in it. I have never ever seen anyone in my life behave like they had won the lotto, or going to Disney when they KNEW THEY had caused someone to get into trouble. Cartwheels? I bet if she could do them she'd do them. She is moody, childish, sets people up, tattles about dumb senseless things that you wouldn't even think are important, and then tells you the important things don't matter to her - her standard comment "I see nothing, I say nothing." Yeah right. Well I DO nothing wrong so she's had no reason to tattle on me. She's tried to make me come at her on purpose. Waiting for ME to be vindictive, I haven't been - and it has peeved her off. For example - She's the safety manager - and she's purposely taken things out of my locker and placed them in various places in the lunch room. Okay - fine - I KNOW it's you - You're the only one with a key. I set a trap - twice. I Took my things out of my locker. Put them in my car. I left Aleve in my locker - Never told anyone I took it. Guess who KNEW I had Aleve? Oddly enough I was going through 100 a week? Coincidence? Not likely. She told us WE couldn't have drinks in the warehouse then had one herself the next day - Her comment - Don't do as I do - do as I say. _Really? That's mature. She picks and chooses who gets extra time on their lunches. She spends the MAJORITY of her day on the phone. (we have a no phone policy) If she's not on HER phone she's on the company phone - NOT working. When I ask her how she manages to get so much work done (being sarcastic) She said the trick is to make your people work - while you LOOK like you're doing work and not tire yourself out. Really? Um - FYI - you're not fooling anyone - EVERYONE that has come and gone talks about your lack of involvement and work. I believe two truck drivers have said to me personally they'd like to see someone light a fire under her butt. She used to have 6" fingernails until I made the a comment that it must be hard to work with those nails.....a month after I started there - and voila - Ever since? They have been a workable length - still very glittery, and polished - but only about 3". We HAVE to wear safety gloves - TRUST me I've been shopping there for 2 years - SHE NEVER wore those safety gloves WHICH by the way - she hounds me to death about. EVERY day - and the gloves? I'm allergic to....but even as safety advisor - she won't order me ones I can wear. I finally bought my own. She's told me it was okay to take stuff - when I knew that wasn't right, then laughed saying WHO would know? I mean it was like she hoped I would. So today - I get called in the office. I'm now being reviewed for "improper policy procedures" and it's serious. I'm gobsmacked. I literally wasn't sure what I did wrong - but a few days ago I left a note in the till telling the boss I wanted to buy two 1940 nickles. Next thing I know I got called in the office. I was chastised for that. Apparently this woman told the big LP guy I left a note staging the fact I was going to STEAL two nickles. WTH? I left a note to BUY THEM. OMG. ARE YOU KIDDING ME? So okay now my spidey sense is up. Then today I am told my DF was in the store - Yup, He bought a lamp - yup. He bought a fan too I said. Did he buy that from you? Um.....yup. Did he use your debit card? Well - if he didn't want to steal it - yup. We only have one. Did I ring him up? Yes - The manager told me to take over the register - and the other girl was on break. What was the big deal? I'm a manager now? Big deal was - on tape it looks like I priced the lamp FOR DF. Um.....no. We were all pricing things, I put it out - he saw it - bought it. Asked me if I liked it. I said yup it's okay - and he left. I thought I was in trouble for going outside and loading the fan. HOLY SMOKES - This woman HAD to have called this LP guy - and set me up - SHE told him all of this. THANKS a lot. She's supposed to be helping me...learn the procedures for employee purchases and or rather NOT purchases.We go through orientation,and we help each other, because there are a LOT of rules...and I mean a LOT......was she ...HELPING ME...yup helping me..get fired. ANY OTHER manager over you as a new manager would have stood there, watching and said - HEY _ don't ring that up. NOPE ---I mean shes so quick to tell me every OTHER thing I do wrong. But this? She wanted me to mess this up. Any other time she would have said HEY don't price that. Don't do this, don't do that. My other manager would have told me NOT to do whatever while your husband is here......or don't take that out.......or don't do this. What did this one do? Nothing NOPE - she stood back in the back and watched me do this and then reported it the way SHE saw it - and now I'm under review for it all. I'm under review for another incident SURE she also reported as she saw it - and she was the direct cause of it.....something I priced, and had DF buy ------which is NOT against policy....but they're trying to decide if the "snitching" is legitiamate. I mean I had no reason to NOT tell them what I did, and why -----it's just the way it was presented to them by her - and then to hear MY reasoning. WORLDS apart. My reasoning is to make money for the store. Which she knew nothing about. So now is it legitimate? Or is it directing? I was honest about everything I said. But being honest may still cost me my job. Either way sometimes you can't win. The thing is - like I told my boss today - EVEN IF - they decide I get to keep my job? My integrity was still questioned. I have a feeling that while they believe me - this woman has been on a witch hunt to get rid of me for a long time so any little thing that she's told me is okay and I've thought it was - was written down, or tattle taled......and what seemed like I was doing right - all along has been not right. Then when it all came apart - she's jumped back and said "OH I never said that - she's wrong." Well - If I do end up loosing my job- I hope she gets help, because there is something seriously wrong with a woman that would go to the lenghts shes gone to because she is jealous of me because she told the boss she spends more time with me than her now - and that's ridiculous. I do my job, and I don't socialize with anyone. If I spend more time with my boss it's because I have to ask SOMEONE I trust questions about what I'm supposed to do - because pretty much once you steal from me, and set me up once? I'm not trusting you for squat. Still I've been nice, and don't wish bad for her - but if they keep us both? I've already told them I think she's just going to keep upping the ante to try and get me crucified. I told them this is why I didn't want this job in the first place. It hurts more than anything. I've stuck up for her - I haven't said a bad thing about her - and she's gone out of her way to talk about me, and not even behind my back - One of the guys even said "Hey don't worry about what they're saying - you know you do a good job." Sheesh - how would that make you feel to know your manager had every other employee at one end of the store laughing and whispering, pointing, and then this guy comes and says THAT to you? Not likely the talking wasn't about you now was it? I'm not sure what's wrong with her - but I've told my boss - no matter what happens? She needs help,and ......this is it for me. I'm not putting up with any more. Trust is gone. She hasn't helped, she went right for my throat....and now I have proof. And people wonder why I don't have "girl friends" .......who needs friends like this? I won't know for a week or so if I still have a job - so if you have a spare prayer? I'm thinking this woman could really use them. - I'll be okay eitiher way. I just didn't know her anger, bitterness and hatred went that deep. Must be a heavy chain to drag every day. Maybe if it weren't so heavy she'd have an easier time of it. She's all the time talking about church and this and that - and I digress - I think she needs a new set of ears or a new church - one or the other isn't working for her. Anyway - just wanted to get it off my chest - I have so many other bigger things goin on in my world right now - didn't need this for sure. Thanks for listening.
