I knew there was something up with this lady when I first met her. I was like this woman is just too happy and just overly cheerful. Me and another associate that I started with was discussing this the other day. There is this lady in the work are she's always smiling and always just way too cheerful. Like she's trying to put on a front while in your face then when you turn your back she will talk about you and smack her lips and roll her eyes. I know she does this cause one day I caught her and she didn't know I was looking. She is like a manager and over the guest in the store I guess she's like a guest services manager or something like that. Anyway, I'm like no one can ever be that cheerful. Although okay maybe people can be that cheerful, but there has to be days when you aren't just so happy. So, I've spotted the ugly side of her, one day I just had a simple question to ask her about my lunch, like I didn't want to make a mistake or anything like that so I figured since she was around, she could help me out. And hey she was like, when I first met her, you have any questions just ask me. (Yeah right I'll never ask her another question again) She smacks her lips turns around and makes this real ugly face like what do you want. I mean like really, okay you been here longer then I you're all about helping team members and guest, but you show a lot of attitude. Then one day I lost my locker. I hate that we just don't have assigned lockers because that would just solve a lot of problems with people not remembering what locker is there's. Anyway, I couldn't unlock my locker and I knew which one it was. So I needed her to open it. No one else can open your locker unless they have your four digit code that you put in or unless they are a manager. So she had to unlock it. She had attitude once again and after unlocking my locker she turns around to another associate and says she is always losing her locker. I saw her do it too. But anyway, not true that was actually my first time I ever needed help to unlock my locker. Crazy woman. Anyways, I want to try and avoid her, but it seems impossible cause every where I turn there she is. But anyway, that is the only qualm about my job. Otherwise everyone else is pretty nice at my job. Its better then working at wal mart I must say and I've dealt with a lot worse. I know that I will always have to be dealing with people like this so I better get used to it. I have this goal, that if I am still there, I plan to take her job cause I know I can be way better of a leader then how she is acting.

Awww, ya know, that's really aggravating when people get that type of attitude and they are suppose to be helping you. And she's guest services???????? Sure sounds like they have the wrong person in that area. Try to do your best and not bother her too much. She sounds too witchy. If you have to ask her something...be cool, and calm about it. Pretty soon you'll be able to turn around and make a face at her behind your back.

I kind of already do that. But I make sure she's like a ways off down the aisle. But I will make sure not to ask her any more questions. Cause it just seems like she doesn't like to be bugged a lot. Although she likes to put on a face letting people think that its okay to bug her. I'll just try and find someone else if I have any questions. It is aggravating that she is like that. I can only imagine how she is around guest who have questions about products.

More than likely she is as sweet as pie in front of the guests, then goes home and takes off her mask. I don't like fake people at all.

That's a good one, she probably does or when the guest rounds the corner she takes off the mask and start mouthing off how the guest is to some other associate who cares to listen. I don't like fake people either. And it seems like she is the queen of the fakes.

Is it possible she has you confused for someone else? Maybe she thinks you did something against her but didn't. You could always as her what her problem is, the worst she can do is smack her lips and roll her eyes. Good luck with this co-worker and watch your back.

Yeah I think I'm just going to leave it. She knows I just started there so I don't think she has me confused with anyone.

It was nice that you did not say anything to her about teling that lie. I would have told her about herself. I had a fat slob over me when I was working and she would not do her share of the work I delivered all the darn mail all over the building and opened up the mail from the people who had abortions. and I had to read the mail sort it out and then take the checks out and sort them by doctor. I had an abortion because my doctor made me. and I could not take reading those letters about all those abortions. it was a mental stresser for me. so I resigned because after reporting her nothing was done. she was eating on all the lunch breaks while I stood on my feet doing all the mail.

Yeah, being that I just started I didn't want to start anything with her and just have her open up my locker. But had I been there for a year or something oh yeah I would have spoke up and told her something. I was like that at wal mart when someone said something about me that wasn't true I would always speak up for myself. But anyways, wow, that job you had sounds like a really depressing job. I don't think I could handle that job either. I'd probably go home in tears every day. Being that you read letters from people that had abortions. Well at least you were able to leave that job. I can't stand people who do nothing on the job and then take all the credit for things they didn't do.

NO they were not letter from the patients. the doctor would do a two day procedure and have to mark down on the paper that the left arm was there and the right arm was there and the body was there and so on to make sure everything was removed from the woman. then we would take the checks out of the envelope and put it all with the right doctor they go to. I think it was from the insurance company. but,all the names of the girls was there for me to read and it was terrible I was passing out and I have this condition where I vomit blood for months. so,I had to terminate and it just about killed me. once I was trying to keep the child i knew was a boy and I was sick so bad every day for two weeks I went to the hospital for them to shoot fluids in me. and after I could not keep it. I got so stressed I took a bottle of pills nad went to sleep. this lady who never comes to my house came and found me I did not know where I was when I woke up in the hospital vomitting because they pumped me up.

Oh okay I thought that it was letters from the patients. But it is from the doctor. That is horrible. Yeah I wouldn't be able to do that. That is so sad you had to abort your baby because of complications that were going on. I'm so sorry. I don't know how I could handle it if I had to go through that. I've always wanted a baby and to go through that would tear me apart.

Some people are just like that. They give a false face and make people believe they are all perfect and wonderful. There are some people who are naturally sweet and nice and speak in this calming voice, but that is the way they are. There are others like me who do show their feelings although when I am very upset I do it in private. This lady seems to be hypocritical. Oh I hope that you get your own locker. Have you talked to management about this since you may leave a jacket or a sweater in what was your locker for the day and someone else who gets assigned that the next day, may take it.

That sounds like a good idea and I know what it is like to be on the short side, you cannot reach the top of anything. I am also concerned that maybe there might be a time when the management has more short people working and they take over the lower lockers, or maybe there are too many tall people and some of them have to use the lower lockers. Of course this is my imagination running overtime as usual.

Wow! That woman has a terrible attitude. It looks like she's jealous or insecure or something. For me, the best you can do is have a very long patience and try to ignore her for as long as she does not insult you or say bad things to your face. Making faces when she turns around is something tolerable so far. No matter what she does to you, you still try to be nice to her. Who knows, she would change when she realized you're a nice person despite her attitude. In the end, you will win the heart of your other co employees than that woman, and you can make true friends at work than her.

That is something that I'm going to have to work on is patience. I don't have a lot of it lately. But the best that I can do is just ignore her and steer clear of her. I am going to have to start killing her with kindness if I ever need to discuss something with her. Show her the correct way of treating people. Maybe eventually she will take on my example. Maybe she'll change or maybe she won't either way I'm just going to be nice to her.

I have worked in the corporate world for thirty-two years and there will always be someone on the job that is a fake. I would try to stay far away from her as possible. She seems the type that can cause trouble if she wants too, especially since she has been there longer. If she doesn't like you she will be trouble and I've seen them thankfully I was never directed with such behavior but I have definitely seen it. Good luck and I hope you get her job one day.

She does seem like that type of person and it is so true that there will always be someone like that no matter were you work. I'm just going to have to deal with it and at least try to avoid her at all cost. I'm not sure if she just don't like me or what is the deal. But its not going to matter to me if she doesn't like me, I'm there to work and get my paycheck so I'm not going to pay her any mind at all.

You just have to learn to "go with the flow", or just pretend that you have not seen anything. Not unless she messes up with you,then you really have to do something about her.

Yeah that is something definitely I'm going to have to do. Or at least try to avoid her at all cost. And hopefully she won't cause any trouble with me.

As long as you are doing the right thing in your work then there is nothing to worry about. Never mind the negative comments from her or anyone who creates bad image in you. Learn to be strong and make this as a challenge in life.

I'm going to really have to start learning to be like that strong. And just not take it so hard and see it as a challenge in my life into making me a better person and being a strong person. I'm just going to focus on me and what I do at work and forget about this lady. And not let her negativity affect me at all or my day.
