Hurt and very upset
I am very sensitive and when people are mean or nasty I cry because I feel so humiliated and stupid.

Yesterday I made a mistake and my boss corrected me on it and went on with my work I am glad he corrected me I learned from my mistake. today he did the same with another lady that works at the office. She burst into tears and start blaming me. She says it is because she always has to do my work and whatever. She yelled at me and told me to cancell my appointment at twelve she is going to the doctor and going home. I won a make-over competion and I told my boss and everyone else I will only be working half day today and they said it is fine. She tells me she will not answer the phone I must stop going on smoke breaks. I am a receptionist. Then she goes and tells everyone at work bad stuff about me, making me look bad infront of the boss and other employees.

The one lady said I must just ignore her because she was wrong and no she cannot take it and tries to blame other people for her wrong doings.

I just felt so bad and hurt that I just started crying. Did not cancell my make-over appointment going at 11:45.

Thanks for listening having depression and being on medication and trying to get over trying to commit suicide and trying to cope with a nasty lady was just one to much this morning.

Discuss her with the boss, and HR ( if the company has such a division / facility ). She sounds unreasonable and someone who refuses to take responsibility for her own choices and actions. She should not be allowed to take time of to see a doctor after simply being told there was something wrong with something she did. Enjoy your makeover --- pity she can't have a psychological make-over, sounds like she needs it. And as the other lady says, this one probably annoys all of them, and they're unlikely to take anything she says, seriously.
