Reasons not to "off" a co-worker

  1. OK folks - I need a few, cause right now it's looking awfully tempting lol!

    It's a fellow nurse; she's a personality disorder and one of those people that went into psych to solve her own issues. Positive thoughts to me, please; if I can make it through tomorrow then by some fortuitous miracle of scheduling I don't have to work directly with her for another five weeks.

    Anyone else dealing with this?

    NurseRatched.....try walking up to that a nurse.....and putting your arms around her, giving her a very warm hug, and let her know she's entitled to her pain, but could you do anything for her to make things better. Be sincere or it will come across as phony. Phony doesn't work.....Sincerity should....not on everyone....but on some....and she sounds like she would just melt in the arms of a sincere person's love for her. Be that nurse for her.....she has probably never had anyone treat her that way before.

    Treat a person with kindness to melt away the bitterness, but don't do it if you don't really mean it. :kiss

    Smile and walk away. She's a co-worker. If the conversation doesn't involve work, don't engage.

    I agree. She's a co-worker. Too many women paid the price for advancing womens' rights...

    We're professionals. All need to act like it on the job.

    Be a role model ...a professional female role model.

    Smile and walk away.

    Okay, okay .

    Good advice, as always! Our limited conversations are work related - and whenever there is a question she constantly challenges me or flat out calls me wrong, even when I have supporting documentation to back me up. I'm guessing I just need to refer her elsewhere with issues whenever possible, since we are clearly clashing personalities. I'm just the latest in a number of people she has butted heads with.

    Cheerfuldoer - your name says it all - you are such a goodhearted person and since there is no way I could do as you suggested and be sincere about it, I will walk away.

    we will all help hide the body..then we will all be (re)united in our evil deed...and can all live happily ever after...

    on a side note, if you can find someone to marry her and move to my county..her husband can kill her and serve less than a year in good friend would do that for you wouldn't they???

    Lots of ideas where to hide the body - thought this through while raising teenage boys - places so good, I'd be a little blue haired lady before they found the bleaching bones.

    OR, you could offer her a man... Sounds like she could use one! She won't disagree with you anymore, I guarantee that! She'll certainly have more to talk about without a doubt...Fix her up!
