That is THE type I have the worst problems with. Don't suppose anything can be done?

Using the money from a HUGE foundation family after they died to do what they want with it and use volunteers while they get giant raises and pack their pensions.

The dietician who made them quit giving the seniors dessert, seniors need carbs the MOST. Sometimes that is all they'll eat. But now they can buy it for extra$$ if it doesn't sell they quarter it up and give it hard and crusty to them.

They have three soups a day but no longer deliver them-"too much trouble"- old people want that soup but can't have it anymore unless they go in person.

Bath ladies who never show up but they bill you regardless. That never actually give a bath. It's a 10 minute Tasmanian Devil spin dry. You should see the look on LOL's face when she shakily walks out all wet with a fresh outfit stretched onto her.

I could go on and on.

It's okay, I'm going to show up for their weekly luncheon/meeting for the help. In person.

"Well, hellloooooooo!"

Tell them just because you do it differently does not necessarily make it wrong.

Be careful though, I've pulled that a few times and either they shut up or they go ape-**** over it.

Bah...that sucks bad. I hate that crap...grew up with this kind of attitude from my damn dad.
I especially hate the whole "stop being so sensitive" crap. It's so frustrating. It's like they just completely shut you down and dismiss you. They mine as well be giving you the middle finger and telling you to go f*** off and stop being a cry baby.

(((((((Mono)))))))

I'm sorry you have to work with such people. Work is hard enough...but then having to work with sucky co-workers?
Bah.

Yep, that was my dad too, and then my husband. It's so invalidating when
everything is dismissed because it's too emotional. Like emotions aren't real,
or there's no reason for the emotions ... even if they are a bit over the top.

Don't worry. I've survived worse hell than this. Compared to the old co-workers in my old workplace, they are relatively tame, just more blatant.

Yeah, tried, they don't seem to get it and stick to their guns. Not sure how they didn't get it as it seemed obvious to me but most do not change their minds.

Only one thing ever worked for me. Calling out discrimination. Which is like taking a sledge hammer to a tiny nail if the situation isn't too severe (though thr situations adds up).

Re: The what's bothering you RIGHT NOW thread Part IV

Well, I thought it was over.

Monster storm warning, 8-12 inches through Sunday.

Blowing and drifting and hell hath no fury-ish.

Good thing the other chick will be there.

Sounds kinda mean of me

Dogs today and I am SO happy. Then, all is hers.

It is NEVER this bad here. Oh well, it is now!

Crikey! I haven't seen a blizzard like that since 1971. We were buried for three
days. My dad finally braved the waist deep snow drifts to walk 4 blocks to his
tractor repair business and start up the biggest tractor on the lot. He used it
break a path for the snow plows because it was too deep for them.

After breaking a path down the highway and then down our street to the
hospital he took me to work at the cafe out on the highway where they'd
been stuck for 3 days, sleeping on the floor at night and cooking for the
people who were stranded in the motel next door during the day.

I remember a blizzard in 1957 that may have been worse, but I was only six
so I only remember the amazing drift from the roof our garage.

Add having a mental illness into the mix and we are less believable then we are as "just" women.
