Re: How to handle a controlling coworker

It's pretty much anybody's business why you're in the office during off hours who is above you in rank in the company, as I see it.

Even people below you in rank not doing the same job could inquire, like the janitor could question it, I would think, especially if he was the one responsible for locking up, having lights off, etc.

It doesn't sound like she made a big deal out of it, but just mentioned it, as you said.

She mentioned it, your mind took off running with it and is trying to make a big deal out of it, most likely because of you already feeling she's been up your a** about everything else.

Tell your mind to settle down and give you a break. Send it to the space where your boss said you do good work, take some deep breaths, shake off the feelings of being pi***d off, practice your new tactics for approaching her, and have a good weekend.

Good luck with getting it all worked out in your head space. I'm off to the garden. Goodbye screen, hello green. Peace.
