KInd of… I held back what I really wanted to say lol
shes alot younger than me, probably the first job shes ever had. extremely rude and quick to argue. not very polite to customers etc…. anytime you ask her for help or a question she has a smart @$$ response to go with it. she does NOT do ANY of her responsibilities so when you come in for your shift you have to pick up ALL her slack along with yours and it gets everyone behind.
Im just sick of it. Training her was miserable; she still doesnt know how to do simple transactions when ringing up customers etc… last night there was a receipt laying on the counter and I asked if she needed it or if it were trash and she said ” well obviously I need it, if i didnt it wouldnt be on the counter would it?” she always mouths off in front of customers like this (one of my biggest pet peeves) and I just had it! I replied “if you need it, it goes in the drawer, not on the counter where you are doing customer transactions, you can be fired for that. AND I dont know who you think you are but you will NOT back talk me like that! unless you have something nice to say, dont say another word to me because I will not acknowledge your existance. Life is way too short to be that unhappy all the time. grow up!”
MY boss called later that night and I let her know what happened, she said I was fine in what I said and that she has had other complaints about this girl, if she keeps it up, shes gone. Thank goodness!

Lol I am glad you stood up for yourself! I know a lot of people like to be non confrontational but I am of the mindset that if you let people treat you like dirt then they will never know its wrong and will do it to you and everyone else. Once you stand up for yourself, people are much more apt to at least respect you even if they don’t like you. Way to go! 🙂

Im generally a really nice person but I have a big problem with people being disrepectuful. Its hard for me to be treated or talked to poorly and NOT say anything lol. Ive kept my mouth shut for 2-3 months and last night was the final straw. I had to think about what I was going to say before I said it because otherwise I would of made her a sobbing mess lmao!

Oh boy. I’m in a similar situation as of right now. She started on the floor the same time I did, but I have been at the hospital longer working in another position. Anyways, she thinks she knows EVERYTHING. When she’s not doing something right or you try to help her out, she gets nasty right away. At least towards me. She refuses to help out when she needs to. She takes time doing things. I’ve gone off on her several times because of her attitude towards me. She has been belittling me and my position (I’m a Nurse’s Aide and she’s a Mental Health Associate – basically same thing, but they get paid more). She thinks she’s more entitled to do nothing than I am and made it a point to say so. Several of us have complained about her, but nothing is being done. I’m so damn fed up with the bullshit it comes along with. She has responsibilities that she thinks she can just wave off. We are a team and need to work together as we always do. BTW – she is older than I am and I think she has mentality of “don’t tell me what to do, I know better, you’re just some young kid”. UGH. I have to work with her tonight.

ugh 🙁 Yeah I dread working with this girl. I just cant stand being around her lol. I even asked not to have her on my shift anymore lmao.Not sure how your boss is; mine is really awesome and pretty laid back so its super easy to talk to her about problems. Until then I would just try to avoid her as much as possible or kill her with kindness! Just be like Oh I love your necklace today! or something like that. Just be super friendly to everyone else around you if she is close by. Its something I do and other ppl tend to notice how nice and fun I am…. and how miserable she is lol. Fake it till ya make it sista! Hope things get better for you. its def not a fun situation to be in but dont let anyone walk all over you either!

I’m always nice to her because you have to be when you work with people for 12 hours. Unfortunately, she is on my weekend so I am stuck with her three nights a week every other weekend. It really doesn’t make me happy and there’s nothing our director can do to change it. The other weekend already has enough staffed people.
Our director and assistant director are very easy to talk with, but they’re not doing anything. It really bothers me that they’re going to allow her to get awway with stuff. I’m going to ASSUME they did talk with her after last week, but it really hasn’t changed it. I don’t want the lady to get fired, but she will not survive with some of our other co-workers. We will always complain until major action is taken.
The other thing is that she talks a lot too. She doesn’t do her assignments and it falls back on everyone else too.
Sorry, I don’t mean to thread-jack. I’m just so irritated with the entire situation.

Good for you standing up for yourself!
