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! 🙂

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.

@MrsRuby: 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.
