Sorry, this is a bit of a vent, but I have to get this out somewhere. I can’t keep it inside anymore… If you read the whole thing, thank you!
Please tell me someone out there knows what I am talking about…
I have this co-worker who is a closet competitor. I mean, in private she says snide, off-the-cuff remarks, that are rude. But in front of everyone else, she is all smiles and laughs! I call it ‘limbo’, as in, something indescribable.
She comes into my room, looks at my work, says little remarks about it and then goes and does the same work!! I feel like no one would believe me if I tried to explain to them, because you have to see it first hand, to understand.
She also says things, that undermine me in front of other co-workers, in a sneaky way, to make me look bad too.
I feel like there is nothing I can do about it. How do I explain to someone about how she freaked out about me telling her I was going to use A3 paper? That sounds ridiculous right?
I should ignore it, but it is a huge elephant in the room. I have tried to ignore it for 8 months, and now I just find it unbearable.
She is refusing to let me help her do something that we were told to do as a unit, and then is complaining to people that I am not helping her and having other co-workers, from a different unit, help her! So this looks like I am not doing my part. But when I tried to talk to her about the paper that our unit leader told me to use, she flew off the handle!
Does anyone else have a co-worker like this? I don’t even know why she cares what I do. No one is comparing us, except for her.. obviously! If you don’t have a co-worker like this I probably sound like a little girl making a mountain out of a molehill. But if you have one like this, you know what I am talking about!
Please share a similar story if you have one.. I am going to lose my mind!
