Humans are odd. Sometimes I have a hard time believing that other people are made of the same breed as I am. Some people are so mean, disgusting, awful…
My sister started a new job probably about a month and a half ago. She works in a paint room painting gates and fence that welders put together. My sister is an artist – she knows her way around paint. She loved the job initially. She got along with everyone in the paint room and would come home with high spirits and tell me all about the good day she had.
But then it stopped. I don’t know all of the details, I’m not there. But from what she tells me the “manager” of the paint room has been targeting her. They bully her and pick on her and point her out. It’s absolutely disgusting. I don’t know if they are threatened by the good work she does painting or what, but she gets threatened daily. They pick up her time punch-in card, watch her, and even told the boss that she rounded down TWO MINUTES on her time card when she was late after lunch.
She just called me crying because this same manager is being absolutely disgusting today again. She loves the job, but cannot handle the bullying. I don’t know how she has put up with it for so long. She has talked to the bosses and they don’t help. I don’t know what advice to give her, because I want her to be without a job, but I also don’t want her be targeted and treated so unfairly. Even if she has a role in the mess, no one deserves to be threatened and put down and targeted at work. It’s disgusting and it makes me sick. Her manager is a thirty year old woman, and my sister is 21 years old. I don’t know what power trip she is on, but I’m at a loss of words.
People are nasty. I don’t know how anyone gets joy or pride out of being a “manager” that treats others like that. I won’t listen to any more of it. I will go up there and talk to the owners if this crap doesn’t stop. Ridiculous.
