The office might be far from the playground, but it’s not off limits to bullies. From a screaming boss to snubbing colleagues, bullies can create a “war zone” in the workplace. In a recent study, bullied employees likened their experiences to a battle, water torture, a nightmare or a noxious substance. Understanding the seriousness of workplace bullying and what it feels like to get bullied could help managers put the brakes on the behavior, shown to afflict 25-30% of employees sometime during their careers.

No, but I have at school for 12 years.
15 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Sunday 2/11/07 - 9:32:29 PM EST (GMT-5)
Not at work, but a few of them in school did.

Thus "former" boss.

Not really according to those criteria, but I have had unnecessary rank pulled on me by people who seemed to crave power and control (making me do menial or humiliating tasks not part of my job description). I think that's a form of bullying.
15 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Tuesday 3/6/07 - 10:02:58 AM EST (GMT-5)
Yes, the assistant manager of my department.
15 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Tuesday 3/6/07 - 10:18:46 AM EST (GMT-5)
No, never but I've been bullied at school.
15 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Tuesday 3/20/07 - 12:59:39 AM EST (GMT-5)
They attempted and failed.
15 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Thursday 4/19/07 - 12:39:48 AM EST (GMT-5)
Yeah, but I just told her to back off and she did.
15 yrs ago - Monday 4/23/07 - 10:32:09 PM EST (GMT-5)
yes, and thankfully we don't work together anymore. it was more like a sneaky cause trouble lying type of thing she did

A woman at a place I used to work once turned me over her knee and spanked me in front of the boss. No joke.

Nope, I wouldn't tolerate it.
