Quote from danceswithsnakes
I am being targeted by a bully at work, who has been nit-picking, spreading malicious gossip and trying to isolate me and make life hell. I have done nothing to deserve this behavior, and it makes me angry, to the point of going from an eager and positive employee to neurotic, negative and moody. What's worse, is that the DON (who is not very bright) has been hoodwinked into believing this bully is the hardest working workaholic there, in spite of her work history revealing the opposite. Still, the DON supports the bully while choosing to snub me.
Oh my, this sounds JUST LIKE a CNA I used to work with back when I was a spring chicken. Wow, it could totally be the same person.
This was back in the days when we worked 8 hour shifts. This particular aide worked 3pm to 7am, EVERY SINGLE DAY. She had every single nurse in the facility in her pocket and yeah, she was there 16 hours a day, every day, but the funny thing is, she never did ANY work while she was there. It was as if her presence was enough. She also liked to start things to make herself look better and everyone else look worse.
To this day, she is probably revered as the best CNA in history when in truth, she was one of the worst. Rude and rough with residents, etc. But, hey, none of that stuff mattered because she worked 2 shifts. Every day.
