I cannot control her. I'm learning how to handle people's comments when they're negative. What I don't like is her perception of the power she has over me.

For instance, the Saturday before the two and a half hour meeting, she mentioned wondering why I was in the office on a Saturday. I don't normally work Saturday's and so I guess that made her curious. I came to the office to get my lap top's power cord. However, is it really her business why I came into the office on Saturday? What's the big deal? What if I wanted to do work here?
