For me it was the boss' wife. He tried to play mediator. I made them aware that while she was there, she was not his wife, but his employee, at the same level that I was. No more, no less. I deserved to be treated with respect, and not be undermined, or treated poorly, just because she has mental issues (per his words). I would not tip-toe around her. If that's what he expected he could take the job and shove it up his ass. Things changed. She backed off. Way off. And it became a better place to work without her interference.
Nah. It was much better telling her to fuck off.
I have been blowing her off for about a year and a half now....seems its not working anymore and I am sick of it.
I told the boss...now I am being forced into peer mediation.
Doesnt matter ...I am putting in my 2 weeks notice tomorrow.
