Mean and nasty

Have you ever met someone who was so dreadfully miserable they could not interact with anyone without a terse tone, a sharp reprimand, or an angry retort?

I am dealing with a woman who is the most unpleasant person I have had the misfortune to deal with. I attempt to be polite and professional and am met with disdain and dismissal. Terse comments, angry responses, bitter tone of voice. And I feel like an idiot. I stumble, I make mistakes, I neglect to send my attachments with my emails. And every single thing just proves to her that I am a moron sent directly from Hell to mess with her schedule.

I know she is a miserably unhappy person. I make allowances for that. I reply kindly, and with patience. I hope she has something that makes her happy, but I fear it is not the case. All I can say is it is the most frustrating thing to deal with. I am afraid of her. Which is ridiculous.

Because, seriously, I could take her.


I am participating in NaBloPoMo for November. Why? I hate you. It's true.

  1. Yep, been there. The best advice I can give is to do exactly what you've been doing. And keep repeating in your head, "I'm the bigger person. I'm the bigger person." :)

  2. Dude, you need to send her the live webcam of those puppies in a box. No one can be mean when such a thing exists
