That could maybe help you get a better handle on the situation.
Well, she's probably upset about me not realizing that she's my boss. My coworker said that they don't like people questioning them. I understand that. I think she's a very insecure person and needs to control things in order to make herself feel better. Why the hell am I listening to her?

What worries me is that she comes across as a devoted, hard-working employee, which is probably true. However, she's also driven by her need to control things.

You should have heard her handling a potential fraud cause. She was like a pit bull. She's very good at pointing out the negative.
