    I did a thread a while ago about a special snowflake in my office. I found out recently that she is extremely bitter about me getting the leadership position that she so desperately wants. I now understand she was trying to get me to quit or get me written up so she can replace me. How petty. The fact is that I have more education, years of experience, and great references to support me. I don't understand how someone can be somewhere for years and don't take continuing education courses to further her career. I'm enrolling into a teaching certification program and continuing education courses. It's a one year program but there's no rush to finish it. Instead of bringing me down and saying it's a waste of time and money, why not take a class with me? I loathe with a passion bitter gals/guys in the workplace.

    I've met people like this, but in my neighborhood.
    They get angry at others for no real reason.
    In my case, it's obvious that the anger is misdirected.
    I tried to reach out to them, deciding to take the "blame" for causing their anger.
    I thought, maybe I had offended them in some way without realizing it.
    They just saw it as a sign of weakness and upped their game of hostility.
    Which means, they never had any intention of trying to get along with me.
    Oh, well. It must suck to be a loser.

    This thread is why I started my own business. I'm the only b**** allowed.
    But seriously, I experienced this so many times in my employed life I began to think that women in high positions didn't get there by being nice. Because none of them were. Maybe there is something to that. Are we forced to be *****es or do the circumstances of our employ bring it out in us as a survival mechanism.
