    Default Uh Oh! New boss

    I just went back to work p/t and tonight I discovered that my new boss is psycho! I saw her four different times tonight and she was in four different moods. She witched me out two times!!! I'm brand new!!!!

    I saw a friend that worked in another dept. and I asked him what was up with her. He told me she's VERY moody. Why on earth didn't he tell me that BEFORE I got the job!?!??!

    I guess the good thing is that once I'm trained, I won't have to work with her so much.

    Nothing worse than walking on eggshells around your boss! I hope it gets better!

    Hugs to you. Did the coworker have any hints on how to deal with her?

    I worked for a psycho once. Things got so bad, I ended up on medication. I just could not deal with going to work, was having anxiety attacks, etc. Just not worth it. The bad thing was, it used to be a good job, but the business changed hands, and the new owner was a nut case. It is the best paying job I ever quit, but now my own sanity has been restored. You don't have to put up with this, there are other jobs out there.

    Wow, that stinks!! Is she the boss there or is someone higher up than her?Your sanity is not worth a job!! I'd see if it gets better, but if not, I would try to go over her head before I let her chase me off. Sounds like she has issues.

    Been there, done that, finally quit the job! Mine was such a wack job he preferred to hire young high school girls and "mold" them into what he wanted (his words, NOT mine!) He was on a mission to get rid of me, he'd chased off all but 2 members of the origional crew, we'd been there for YEARS! One night he wrote me up (wrongly, trust me) and left it on the desk in the back for all the employees to see for 4 hours! When he tried to serve it to me I refused to sign it, so he said if I "promised to obey his every command" he'd tear it up! I worked out the shift and never, ever went back.

    But, karma is a WONDERFUL thing, lol, he got his BIG BIG BIG time about 6 months later! In fact he got it SO BAD I feel sorry for him!

    Sorry for the ramble, just wanted to let you know you're NOT alone, just tread carefully, carry a big stick and keep the stink eye handy, lol!!

    Okay, I've worked with her a few times and she seems okay now. I'm not working with her again for a while, so good for me!
