Finally I had the guts to do it!!! If you don’t know, I have had a job for the past 2 yrs w/a very toxic, mean, evil-spirited boss. She treated me like garbage, she treats others like garbage, she gets people from other companies fired just because she doesn’t like them… ugh… she was yelling at me for no reason and I finally had it! 2-3 weeks ago she embarrassed me in front of the entire office yelling at me for some dumb reason (she usually yells, she thinks this way things get done faster), and I was so mad :mad: . I almost started crying. I had just miscarried my baby and I told her flat out that I wasn’t going to take her or anyone else talking to me that way, especially after what happened to me and still having the pregnancy hormones in my body. I said if she did it again I was going to leave.
This morning she was yelling at me because I didn’t leave a message at her house when I got in to the office. She had told me to call her on her cell phone, so I did. She didn’t answer, so I called her house, no answer, so I called her cell again, no answer. She always wants me to try her non-stop until I reach her. Well, I couldn’t reach her. She was yelling and yelling because I didn’t leave her a message at her house :mad:. Then she went on telling me to call so and so from the newspaper to have them contact my coworker (who was still at home) and have them email him the proof for our ad that’s supposed to publish on Sunday. I told her they had already emailed him the proof so he had it and had already seen it and she began yelling again telling me that I shouldn’t iterrupt her and that she shouldn’t have to explain herself to me and she shouldn’ have to reapeat things to me. :mad: I was soooooooooooooooo UPSET all I said was “I’m leaving”. I hung up and got all my stuff and left!!!
She’s been treating me this way ever since I started 2 yrs ago. My coworker quit after taking it for 17 yrs and boss calls her every week to try and get her to come back (it’s been 7 months) and my coworker won’t come back. I called my coworker on the phone right after I left (this lady is about to turn 84 and is like a grandmother to me). She was so happy to hear I finally left. And she said there was no way in the world she’d ever go back to that place. Her health deteriorated a lot because of the stress we had to go thru w/this woman. She had high blood pressure, her diabetes went crazy, her neck was killing her from the stress…
I couldn’t sleep, I’d always come home either angry or depressed. Finally I will have some peace of mind!!! I know that financially I shouldn’t have done it, but healthwise, I mean, I couldn’t take it any more. Especially after losing my baby. Gosh, while pregnant she was worse than ever trying to treat me like her maid. I was her executive assistant, her computer person, and she was making me go to her house to help her clean and lift boxes and what not… I wasn’t supposed to be doing those things because my pregnancy was risky, and yet, she didn’t care.
Once my sister was in the emergency room. The person who called me didn’t tell me why but they said I needed to go right away (I was the only one they were able to reach from my family), and my boss almost fired me the next day for having asked her to go see my sister at the hospital! My coworker’s husband had a heart attack and my boss expected her in the office at 9am even though her husband had just had the heart attack an hr before.
Sorry if I’m ranting and venting… I just needed to get this off my chest.
