It’s difficult to understand what is going on from your post.  You probably should not discuss specifics on a public forum.  However, you need to document (for yourself) what is going on.  I don’t understand the chair thing…..but if she is “out” for you, keep good documentation and never stoop to her level.  You may need to pursue legal counsel.

Yes, I have worked with people like this at every job.  At my first job a coworker (woman old enough to be my mother) was very rude.  Everyone called her “scary Mary.”  When I broke up with my boyfriend of 1.5 years I can into work kindof upset.  And when I told her what happened she said, “Well we should have taken an office pool of how long that relationship would last.”  I said, “actually, I’m quite hurt over it.” (I said it in a bitchy tone, so I think she figured I was mad.)  The next day she gave me a present.  I opened it and it was a book.  The book is called “It’s called a breakup because it’s broken.”   …..hey, at least it wasn’t, “He’s just not that into you.”

Ugh, I hear ya! Thankfully my nemesis quit a few months ago but here it goes…

I’m an auditor for a retail chain and my department at that time was pretty small (me, this girl, another co-worker and our boss). Since I’ve worked for the company this girl had some major attendance issues.  This time 2 years ago she went out on leave to go to rehab. Now, I was happy that she was trying to deal with her addiction but I wasnt happy about having to pick up all of her work ontop of still doing all of mine. So, shes out for like 6 months, comes back and continues to have attendance issues. Every time she would call in, I would have to do her work. We started keeping track and not including her 6 month leave, she called in about 85 times that year alone (it was always atleast once a week). How could she still be employed, you ask? NO FREAKIN CLUE!

I called in sick one day with a MIGRAINE and she was supposed to handle my stores for the day. Well apparently she had a “family emergency” so she couldnt come in. My boss called me since one person can’t possibly handle everyone on their own so I came in. Theres a shortcut to get to our office that cuts through the mall so as I was taking the shortcut, who did I see walking into the mall with her boyfriend? Why, yes… THIS GIRL! I was livid! I told my boss about it but he was too much of a pussy to do anything.

Anyways, after that I lost all respect for her. I chose to just simply not speak to her. I wasnt mean to her at all, I just basically ignored her. I would talk to her if it was work related but anything other than that just wasnt going to happen. Fast forward a few months and our boss is laid off. Our other co-worker and I always joked about this girl and our boss having something going on since they were always giggling together. So, after our boss was laid off this girl realizes that shes no longer going to get away with the things that she used to. She went to HR and told them that I was rolling my eyes at her. ROLLING. MY. EYES.

I got called into a meeting where I was SCREAMED at by the HR nazi for like 15 minutes. Never in my life have I been spoken to the way this woman spoke to me for rolling my eyes at my worthless co-worker. I couldn’t even speak I was so angry. Fiance works for the same company and is well respected there. The HR nazi didn’t know that he was my fiance at the time but has since attempted to kiss my ass. No thanks lady, I will never forget the things she said to me!

A few days later, this girl quit and we actually threw a party. Like literally, I made cupcakes! Sure my workload has more than doubled but I got a nice raise and last I heard, this girl is still on the unemployment line…

Oh, okay, I understand now.  She’s a bitch.   Seriously, girl.  Document…you won’t win this one.  It’s a freakin chair.  This is no such thing as a manager’s chair…..   I mean what do the people at the bottom of the corporate ladder sit on….cardboard?

I’m sorry, she’s hateful…….and she’s HR.  Wow,  …..  sorry.

I know how it feels to be treated poorly at work by a nasty older female co-worker. This woman sent me nasty emails at least once a week and was always just plain mean spirited and hateful towards me. It got so bad that I actually had a breakdown at work and my co-worker saw me crying and went to to one of the owners of the company. Long story short, she was prevented from having any kind of interaction with me- no speaking,  no emails, no nothing. I really liked my job at one point too, until her harrassment plus the pettiness of that place got the better of me and I ended up leaving. You’re definitely not alone when it comes to this sort of thing!
