There's this new girl at the clinic.. from the second I met her I knew she would be trouble.

- she was ordering people around on her first day. like dude it's your first day. stfu and work.
- she almost hit one of the other techs in the eye with a folder thing (guess she was trying to be funny, but could have blinded her)
- pushed me forcibly out of the way because she wanted to be the first to pet a puppy
- NEVER says please, or thank you.. it's always "do this" "do that", even to the clinic OWNERS.
- when you're talking to someone she stands in the way to block you from being able to talk to the other person

So today she comes crying to me "I think (clinic owner) hates me!"

No sh*t, bitch! Maybe work on your attitude and earn some respect around here! FFS.. I hate aggressive, bitchy people.. can't work with 'em.

You need to start calling her on this sh*t. Seriously. She wont learn otherwise.

If she pushes you make sure you call attention to it. "excuse me! You pushed me and I didnt appreciate it." If she comes back with "I didnt mean to," or "no I didnt" say I would appreciate it if you would be more careful!

Start teaching her like a child, because it sounds like she is. Prompt her to say "thank you" or ask for the "magic word". If she flings something, take it out of her hand and tell her to be more careful.

Eventually she'll catch on.

She sounds overeager and overconfident

Bad combo.

Maybe she'll get a clue

Youve got to give her one of those air break surprised stares if shes being stupid.

I'm really really good at dealing with people like her. I'm naturally a little bitchy and I LOVE making people like that feel and look stupid. .

Im envious. Id love an outlet like that where I work. Ive corrected all of the others who were here.
11 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Thursday 3/11/10 - 6:40:12 PM EST (GMT-5)
We had a new guy like that (the ordering people around on his first day thing, not the puppies )
I hate them. I worked silently and loyally for 3 years to get where I am, and they come along and bitch at me because they're not happy that they only get paid $7 an hour more than me
11 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Thursday 3/11/10 - 6:41:21 PM EST (GMT-5)
Oh...and while you call her on the pushing...walk past her and pet the puppy. It establishes dominance and control of the situation. Eventually, she'll back down and get in line.

We used to have an awesome lady in another branch who would make all the boy's behave. I'd be on the phone with her, and you'd hear the techs having a convo near her desk, and they'd be swearing, and next thing she'd be all "excuse me (tech's name), language please"
I loved her. I'd love to have the confidence to be like her. Plus she was awesome at her job
11 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Thursday 3/11/10 - 6:43:44 PM EST (GMT-5)
Plan a scheme and to make her lose her job.

11 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Thursday 3/11/10 - 6:43:53 PM EST (GMT-5)
I know Chila, only reason I didn't say anything that day it was like her second day, so I was like okay, let's cut her some slack.. and also, I'm a volunteer, if the owners hired her then there must be a reason, I don't feel I'm in a position to tell her how to do her job. I think she may be in some way related / friends with the owners.. which would be crappy.

However if she continues to be sh*tty I will say something
to her privately.

See I'm the opposite, I'm naturally completely unbitchy and it just baffles me .. I feel like Im dealing with a child and I'm like.. srsly you're 37! So yeah.

Envious? Gah! I hate working with her!
11 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Thursday 3/11/10 - 6:46:18 PM EST (GMT-5)
she's just naturally bitter and aggressive.. today she was going to pick up the phone and the owner said "Oh, leave it, someone else can get that. We only like happy people picking up the phone around here"

Burnnnnnn.

Thats why youre in the position youre in. You don't see yourself as having power, when you have all the power. Youre established and youre not on the payroll. They can't fire you. And youve got to lay the groundwork EARLY. At the FIRST sign of disrespect, youve got to put the kibosh on it.

If she stands in the way of a conversation, stop, look her in the eye and firmly say "excuse me". As if its dumb for her to not realize she was standing in the way. If done correctly, anytime she may need to cross in-between conversation lines, she'll do it with her head down and a quick apology for interrupting.

I wouldnt even honor her with a private conversation. Id go to the owner. Its not your job to guide her. Throw that bitch under the bus. And then, eventually if she leaves, take her job!

Gah! What is wrong with people!
11 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Thursday 3/11/10 - 6:50:34 PM EST (GMT-5)
And YES envious! I get so much of my pent up snarkyness out when I have people like that working with me.
11 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Thursday 3/11/10 - 6:54:59 PM EST (GMT-5)
I know you're right Chila, it's just that I always (in general) want to give the person the benefit of the doubt.. you know? Like okay, maybe she's having a bad day, or whatever. I wouldn't go to the owner unless absolutely necessary and I wouldn't build a scheme to get her to lose her job.. I'm just not like that. I know they can't fire me, but I just don't like to cause trouble. I feel better now knowing that apparently the owner doesn't like her either, because now I know it's not just me.

So yeah, it's been a week (or two?) since she started and I've been patient, but lately every time she's like "DO THIS" I've been so close to saying... "did your parents not teach you to say please!?"

I mean I've been there 4 months only but I've never once had a problem with anyone there.. everyone asks for my help politely, like "hey Cami do you want to help me over here" etc.. a
11 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Thursday 3/11/10 - 6:55:15 PM EST (GMT-5)
and that is all I ask. Everyone there is super laid back and friendly and she just... doesn't fit in!

heheh. oh gosh, you'd love it.. I really don't remember working with someone this removed from reality in a long time. I have to wonder if she's related to the owners or something because really she acts like she owns the place!

All sorts of things apparently..
I was stuck in a car once for 4 hours while he told me how hard it was to survive on a mere $22 an hour
I only get paid $15, and I'm doing fine
11 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Thursday 3/11/10 - 6:57:56 PM EST (GMT-5)
So look at her and say "Whats the magic word?"

I dont know if I mentioned, my snark is the type that will slap you in the face, but I do it with a smile so they dont know what hit them.

11 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Thursday 3/11/10 - 6:58:03 PM EST (GMT-5)
hahah..wtf? was it a friend of yours?
11 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Thursday 3/11/10 - 6:58:27 PM EST (GMT-5)
Hamlet...why does this person make so much more than you do, but youve been there 3 years? Somethings not adding up there.
11 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Thursday 3/11/10 - 6:59:21 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yeah.. I'm surprised no one else has said anything, you know? I've been there 4 months, but other techs who've been there longer, or doctors... I'm surprised they haven't reacted to her sh*ttiness. Makes me wonder..
11 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Thursday 3/11/10 - 6:59:51 PM EST (GMT-5)
ohh i read that wrong, you're talking about the annoying guy, ok
I thought you were talking about someone else

If you start, a lot of the times thats all it takes. They may be thinking the same thing you are. Throw a couple things out there. Test the waters, and see who follows.

Yeah you're right.. again I know it's paranoid but I keep thinking since no one's said anything that she may be related to owners.. arghgh

Rhi: GRRrrrrrrr!!
