    So sorry for your crummy co-worker, but I think it was good that you told her exactly what you think. Why the crickets??? I would guess this lady is used to people yelling at her in her life and that unlike you – who would be HORRIFIED If a co-worker said all those things, she’ll just shrug it off, and think oh, OK. She might even give you a little more respect now.

    Always looking for Young Unicorns with Feathers! !
    Would love to find the Summer Leaf Mother Pegasus, Tigerheart Mother Unicorn, Wild Troll Male Unicorn, Autumn Leaf Mother Dragon, NightsFire Male Dragon, Red Fire Male Dragon, a Test Paint Grand Unicorn or any GB Fantasy Baby Pegasus!

    Well now I know why she didn’t seem to care. She’s abruptly taking 3 weeks off to get her tonsils out… -_-

    My boss already asked me to postpone the rest of my vacation time, but it’s use it or lose it and I’m not losing it so I told him to take a hike… Yea… I kinda don’t care anymore. I’m tired of being a doormat LOL. At least I will have a few weeks of peace.

    It takes 3 weeks to recover from taking out Tonsils? Really?
    Good for you for not postponing your vacation. You’ve done that too much already and you shouldn’t have to loose your vacation time – you earned that time!

    hmm, quick internet search says recovery time after tonsil removal is only 10 days to two weeks…..think she’s stretching it out just a little too much….

    anyhoo, good for you for standing up for your vacation time, you deserve time off!

    Sitting Cat found! SOON! OMG YEY!

    That’s awesome you finally told her off and got it off your chest! That’s good she actually might realize now she can’t keep acting like that and get away with so much crap and respect you more. I’ve done that before where I didn’t say anything for a long time and then just lost it on a stupid coworker or disrespectful boss. Although I walked away from one job after the boss issue but it felt so good to finally stand up for myself to someone who was treating me poorly. That’s why now I just work for myself doing sales and dog walking and stuff as I couldn’t take working for idiots anymore. I got too stressed out and sick from every dumb job I worked. I hope the new kitten is okay.

    Looking for rainbow or pink & teal grab bags!

    Glad you kept your vacation, Drag0nfeathers, and will be away from Satan(a) (feminine version) and have peace on your job.

    LOL! Despite the sudden silence at my job the past few days (which as been REALLY nice) I had a nightmare last night she got me fired. and for some reason Allie McBeal was there… I think the Christmas music at work is driving me insane LOL! Thanks for the support everyone. I’m going to continue to enjoy the peace and quiet. ^_^ At least for a few weeks.

    I still can’t stand “Feliz Navidad” from my stint at JC Penney during the late 90s. Every time I consciously heard the music that song was on.

    Looool I’d want to see her doctor’s notes for that. Three weeks? Sure.

    I think standing up to her worked really well. A lot of awful people are so used to preying on people’s better natures, and don’t get called out as often as they should. Cos all the decent folk are just trying to get by, to give them the benefit of the doubt. So when they DO get called out, they are surprised. I mean, they’ve been getting away with their bullshit for so long they’ve forgotten that their actions have consequences in real life. I imagine that’s very satisfying. A lot of narcissists look out 100% for themselves only, so they only way they learn is when they are made to reap what they sowed. She’d lied, finagled, and been generally THE WORST. She wasn’t gonna change out of the goodness of her heart or a sense of empathy. She had to be able to understand that her behavior wasn’t going to get her what she wanted before she changed. Good job!
