First, let me say I am thankful to have a job..I know others are not as fortunate. Now that I have gotten that out of the way...OMG! I have a coworker who is not my superior (just been there longer) and speaks to me in a rude and derogatory (sp?) manner. Her tone is inappropriate at times and her work ethic stinks. I am the opposite, yet I became the scapegoat. I spoke to my boss at the point that I had enough, and to my surprise, I was encouraged to "tattle" on her, as I was told, "why not, she complains about you". My supervisor is either afraid of her or has a love/hate relationship with her. They whisper about everyone and if I make an error, no matter how small, they go to the boss with it. They make an error, and its brushed aside and covered up. I refuse to become a person who makes it their job to point out other's mistakes to the boss. That would become a bad habit for any future job. I believe my boss specifically trains people to look over each other's shoulder's, then yells when anything is not perfect. I'm so frustrated..don't like these "mean girls", but love all my other coworkers in the other departments. I want to show them up by doing a great job AND being a great person, but I also know I'm not perfect and am bound to make an occasional error which will be blown out of proportion. Kind of a lose-lose situation... with a paycheck... I know I have more experience and skill then one (or both of them), but they treat me like a moron..
