In all my years as an adult, I have never been spoken to in as condescending and disrespectful a manner as I was to today. The last time I had any kind of issue at work was 15 years ago - and even then I was treated better than I was today.
And I absolutely told her so after she was done.
I don't think she was expecting that. I think she really expected me to sit there and let her talk down to me. I practically laughed at some portions of her speech. Here's the thing - I am so okay with owning my mistakes if they're made. I'm not perfect nor do I pretend to be, so if I've made a mistake, I'm sorry - and I will try not to do it again. But if they haven't been made - and you're going to try to paint me in a corner just because you don't like me (which still blows me away since today was the first time we've met) - be prepared because I do not go down easily.
I have never seen a person try so hard to be professional, yet come across so unprofessionally.
For over 45 minutes afterwards, my task lead was trying to get me to say that I wouldn't quit. I never said that I would; but he saw how I was treated, and how I stood up for myself -and he sees the difference in treatment between employees and just sort of thought I might say "I'm all set with this."
And I still might be. But it will be on my terms....not hers.
Oh, she has no clue as to what she's in for.
I haven't been this angry in years.
Success is the best revenge.....
