She’s on my team (under me). She’s lazy. She’s insecure. And she has this tendency of wanting to give her opinion and expecting others to listen to her no matter how very little she knows.
Point is, she’s been dragging my balls for a while now. My manager gave me partial free-rein in my team and this useless bitch has been trying to bust my balls at the slightest chance to do easy jobs.
It’s like she wants the cool projects but refuses to do hard work. Yesterday I was talking to a coworker about a potential new thing and this woman was commenting on the convo.
She basically wanted us to not do the job or do it in the easiest, ugliest possible way because she’s useless. I tried to reason with her, but it didn’t matter. I kept discussing it with my coworker and finally she interjected saying “why don’t we just discuss this with our manager?”, hoping he’d side with her.
I had it. She was essentially trying to get us to stop discussing it just for the sake of it that, when she mentioned my boss in an attempt to go over my head, I lost it.
I restrained myself from going off on her with rage, but I raised my voice and told her to shut up and let me speak. And it worked.
Bottom line, I thought she was gonna go off on me behind my back, as she usually did, but she didn’t. For the first time in months, she kept her head down, went back to work, and didn’t even show the slightest sign of anger towards me.
What’s even more weird is that she fucking warmed up to me after that, by herself. What did just happen here? Why do I have to be like this? Why do acting calm and accomodating is rewarded by bitchiness, while being a hard ass puts them in their place?
