I have issues with my one coworker; we both have similar responsibilities and at times have to work together, we split certain things and will cover for each other, etc., however she is very temperamental and will sometimes explode on people. Not thinking much of it I called one of the assistants outside of our dept. to ask her about something she submitted, my coworker wasn't in the room at the time and even though she had put a note on the bottom of the paperwork the note didn't pertain to what I was asking the assistant about. Coworker came back and then exploded on me because I tried to 'go over' her. I honestly hadn't meant anything by it and even though I saw the note, I felt that the question was still legitimate......Continued...

    Sure I could have waited for my coworker to return to ask her further questions, but there has been instances similar where the response I received was something along the lines of "IDK, call her and ask."; things like that. Either way I tried to let the temper tantrum go but did hold my ground a bit, she told me to shut up and eventually disappeared into our managers office. When I get frustrated I tend to cry; I don't know why, I've always been this way. I am so angry that I had to hold my tongue because I won't steep down too low and refuse to curse or even say things like 'shut up'. Who is willing to post some funny memes to help cheer me up and get this lump out of my throat?!

    No one should be told to shut up. No one should have to work like a damn prisoner. I know the feeling.... I'm a billing supervisor who isn't allowed to supervise. The manager is a giant man child who I can't stand! He gets pissed, punches doors and storms off. Every so often hell ask my team "What the fuck were you thinking? Do you not look at what you're doing?" and I'll tell him to calm down and he'll tell me to mind my own fucking business. I've reported him to hr 3 times. He'll change for a little while, but he always goes back. Now I'm looking for a new job..... I can't take this place anymore. I wish you nothing but the best! If you want me to tell your coworker to piss off, I'd be more than happy to!

    Alexis - I'm sorry to hear that you go through similar things, it really sucks and in my case, it brings down our whole department. I agree with you that no one should be spoken to in that manner. It's absolutely unacceptable in my opinion. I've never worked somewhere where I've had a co-worker talk to me the way two of them tend to. The one isn't so bad anymore since I did talk back to her. Somehow I keep my cool and don't fly off the handle and I never curse or tell anyone to shut up.

    After I returned from lunch and our department was empty, my coworker apologized to me. I understand people have their moments, but this has been beyond a moment.
