So something happened… and I feel crack inside of me… through which perhaps a ray of reality may come in…
Our project manager, a girl roughly your age, last week – while our boss was on holidays, held a team meeting in which she spoke very negatively to and about us, for no reason at all but to impose some kind of ‘power’ through negative reinforcement.
I never liked bullies, and was genuinely surprised to see this coming from her.
I told you this and voila, you took ‘her side’, saying you would do the same cause people are lazy bastards.
I do not need this in my life. Seriously, if I work hard and love what I do, I do not need a bully to spoil it for me, and I am little angry on myself that I did not react then and there, cause I was I suppose shocked by what came out of her mouth.
If it ever happens again, and chances are it will, I will surely not be the one to stay silent.
Anyway, if you would do the same, it may mean only that you are a bully too, in some part of you.
And you know what?
i have no respect whatsoever for bullies. For me they are the worst of the worst.
I have been a project manager and team leader for 7 years while I was working as an architect. I would never allow myself such behaviour, and if I think someone in a team does not work well I would address that person directly, not over the shoulders of others who did not deserve that at all.
So now, I really feel like this is the first time in almost a year, where I feel somewhat repelled by you. Which may be a good thing?
I don’t know.
Time will tell.
In a meanwhile I will research to find out how to address this what happened – with her, and possibly with our boss who returned few days ago. Cause for sure, that was way out of line.
