Not so hot today.......

Today was not so good I was verbally abused by one of my male coleagues and instead of defending myself I walked out of the office left work early came home and cried. I am such a weak person why can't I speak up for myself. My husband wants to deal with the guy. I switched off the phone because my boss who lets things brew instead of solving problems wants to talk. I wish i could quit but I have a mortgage and family to take care of.
I don't know why when i am in the moment I could never say what needs to be said the words doesn't come out I am sick in my stomach right now and need to go lie down.

Oh dear. I do hope you are feeling better. Talk to your boss, or just send the collague an email. But verbal abuse on the work place is as much as sexual/racial/religious harrassment. It shouldn't be tolorated. Your collague needs to be reprimanded.

That sux. You're not weak, you're just sensative and we need sensative people to help be the conscience of the world. I hope this gets sorted out...

I'm soo sorry sweety! But sometimes walking out is the best way to go. If you would get angry and verbally abuse him too, that would make matters even more difficult.

I hope you can sort this out soon and I'm sorry you have to go through this.

Hmmm... well, some people have no brought upsy. Don't let it bother you too much. Complain to your boiss/HR and let them handle it. The only time you really have to worry about this is if the guy tries it again. Then, clap him in the head with a metal dustbin or a heavy duty stapler, and when the blood is gushing forth from his forehead, say "Do you really want a piece of me?". There, see! I just painted you a cheerful picture! Smile!

Actually, we have a Vice Managing Director who can be abusive at my place. When I line up something better, if he does something abusive around that time, I will be telling him a few things... Until then, I too have people to take care of.

*patting back* Much sympathies, etc.

As my boss told me the other day, following a blow out session with a rude and nasty customer - "Rise above it".
