I came across a clipping that a friend gave me quiet a while ago.(I will copy it when I find it again)( I have been tidying)!!!
It was about a lady that had been bullied for almost 20 yrs (working as a nurse) the person who bullied her is a friend of mine, whom I have known for about 16 yrs and I wasn't aware that she had bullied this other person.
It got me thinking as last weekend I was in a well known bedding/curtain shop and was looking at some cushions and a throw, when the manager of the shop spoke out! and he was telling this young girl(maybe new girl or on work placement I don't know) he was speaking to her and pointing out that those curtains etc etc needed swapping round..he turned to her and said something like "welll if you would actulaly look!! where I was pointing you would know what I am talking about"!!!! he was quite agressive! I didnt eyeball him I just glanced at the girl, who looked embarassed and be littled! he then turned to an older member of staff and remarked "if we cant work as a team then what can we do"! or words to that effect..he then came over and asked if he could help me? I am normaly a bit slow.but this time was ready, and just said "After hearing the way you spoke to that young girl! I would not buy anything from this shop"! and walked out!
So it got me thinking, have you or a friend ever been bullied at work, etc.
do you still see the person who bullied you or your friend, have you stood up to an adult bully?
