Do you ever get worked up enough by a manager that you want to risk your own well being by just quitting?
There is 1 person in particular at my work that tries her hardest to get under my skin.

I've been nothing but kind. I work WELL beyond my means and my paygrade, and I always put on my game face at work.

I'm coming up an escalator about to go on break and god forbid I text my direct manager about a schedule. I get an overhead call on the last step.

I call the manager and she was watching me. She blows it way out of proportion and says "next time I see you use your phone it'll be my phone. Do you understand?"

Of course I politely say I'm going on break and i don't do it ever anyways, and with all due respect the escalator isn't the salesfloor.

I could just feel her negativity and I can't handle it while at work. I don't want to blow a lid and give her what she wants. But she just kept pushing the negativity, even saying "she's right next to me. Check your phone [name]."

No. Fuck you.

I am always positive. I'm beginning to see that these little jabs have a sole purpose of making me angry and it works. So I won't let it anymore.

Im gonna keep check on this.

Finish the shift or leave negative nancy to deal with her kindergarten on her own?

For every negativity, create two positives!

Nobody was telling him what to believe

I've had good women bosses and horrible male bosses, and vice versa. The key is to advance yourself within business either by being promoted or starting your own business such that you are not treated like a child. It doesn't matter where you work or for who, if you are nothing more than skilled labor you will always be treated like a kid.

Re: Do you ever get worked up enough by a manager that you want to risk your own well being by just quitting?
I work at a hospital, have been there 20 and an additional 15 years....so I've been there longer than my boss has even lived. This entire hospital is SO nasty, all bosses are degrading, condescending, threatening your job....and this filters throughout to anyone In The lower supervisory levels.

First off when a supervisor tells you something that is derogatory, threatening, etc. I
1) document what exactly was said, date and time the note (ideally have an email, in my case this is standard) . Anything document, including witnesses...but dont tell them...Don't be afraid that if threatened to ask for this in writing or if on the phone, you know I'm recording this conversation (despite what they say, you CAN use the recording to your lawyer, doctor, labor relations board, just not IN court unless they give authorization)
2) I went to my doctor complaining of chest pain, stress and anxiety, not able to sleep and it's because how my boss harasses me and threatens my job. Look, Dr, we all NEED our jobs. So now He has this documented. So if need be his records can be subpoenaed.
3) call the labor relations board and ask if stuff like this is allowed by law.....ask your union if you have one
4) always KEEP your own mouth shut to your boss.

Once you have enough of documentation, you can go over your boss's head, but probably better if you have a human relations dept. the boss's boss might protect your immediate boss. You can tell them you have all medical and legal documentation and if the harassment doesn't stop immediately "I have obtained legal and govt related advice and am prepared to pursue this to its resolution"

Your boss WILL BE FIRED.

The trick to this all is keeping your own mouth shut, and all the documentation. The hardest part is keeping quiet while you pile up documentation.

I've gotten rid of a couple of supervisors and I'm still working.

I have done this before successfully, and right now I have a full book on my present boss and have the attitude.....go ahead, try try it....

I refuse to be treated like a paid slave - I quit

but, I do it by a very polite and professional letter of resignation which details exactly why I am leaving. And I deliver said resignation to the superior of whomever is giving me problems.

Try it - you just may get a raise and promotion. :)

Yes, and I've quit a couple of jobs because of it. The economy was better then and there was an expectation that a person lookingfor a job could find one.

This happened to me at Wal-Mart about 11 years ago. I filed for workmans comp twice in 2 months.

One manager made my last few months a living hell. I finally ended up walking off the job on my daughters 7th birthday.

I ended up having to pay out over $2,000 in chiropracter bills to get my back straightened out.

Wal-Marts solution for my back injury - prescribe 40 pills of Vicodin each time & send me back to work.

Re: Do you ever get worked up enough by a manager that you want to risk your own well being by just quitting?
Let me give you some old man wisdom:

Never let your emotions dictate your ability to survive.
Use your anger to apply to other jobs.
You cannot change the people you work with but you can change the place you work. All companies have competitors.

Once you have another job, always give a two week notice.
Never burn a bridge.

Then move on - quietly and with your dignity.

Nothing you say or do will change this other person and if they are nasty to begin with they are willing to be a thorn in your side. Just move on - fly low, avoid the radar and they will find someone else to bully.

Wisdom - what you do today, follows you through your whole life. Be the person you want to be around as misery loves company and if you stoop - you become the very thing you despised.

Re: Do you ever get worked up enough by a manager that you want to risk your own well being by just quitting?
In this time frame, you need to think about keeping your job, until you have another. There are probably 50-100 people out there who would love to have your job. INCLUDING A FRIEND OR TWO OF HERS. Get the picture? You could quit and not get another good job for a long time, how satisfying is that? Maybe you have so much talent you don't need to put up with her. But like one of the other posters said, what you do follows you. She could reck havoc with your reputation in future references.
So, play the game, lay low. (If it were me, I'd leave my phone at home. I have 16 hours a day to make calls on my own time, and my phone takes messages, it's not like I can't get caught up.) If any one asked me, I'd tell them how my Supervisor won't let me use my phone at work.) But if you like your job, keep your nose to the grindstone and promise yourself you'll be there long after she's gone. - If you don't like her, transfer or find another job, but don't burn your bridges, ever, and don't leave until you have another job. Continuity of employment is invaluable in your future and nothing is worth blowing your mouth, or your temper on.....imho.. What doesn't kill you makes you stronger tomato

The manager doesn't care if you quit. He's got dozens of applications flooding in every week.

You'll only hurt yourself.

I stood up to my asshole boss on one issue, and I did it as respectfully as possible. He hasn't openly fucked with me since. In fact, he's nice to me when he's still biting the other people's heads off.

I'm still a nobody peon in a thankless low paying slave job, but at least I'm not putting up with his bullshit on top of it, so whatever.
