snake


Last night I hosted a monthly ems inservice.
It was to be a relaxed and informal.
I decided to reveiw one medication and to practice giving I.M. injections.

Well before I could even start my little presentation my former (work) partner
began to lash out at me.............
(previously I wrote about the types of women I dislike>>>>she is the snake)
The ana conda wants our rotation changed so we would be partners again.
I would rather poke my eyes out with a dull butter knife.
She started this in front of the others, .... it was so NOT the time or place for this discussion.

>>>>>>I am nice.......very nice........I keep most opinions to myself, and always try to spare anothers feelings <<<

She began with "Why wont you work with me"
"you are going to have to work with me"
"Is it me?"
"Its not fair"
On and on she went in a raised barely controlled voice.............................

I cant and wont ever work with her again.....I would quit first.....
I would quit a job I love first................

This woman (in her fifties) is a snake.........
she oozes negativity
she criticizes everyone and everything
you can feel her negativity from across the room.........
I wont do it..........
I worked with her for years and wasn't even aware of the effect she had on my well being.........
I think I was becoming like her....seeing only the bad....never the good, or the silver linings God provides us........My blood pressure went through the roof during that time....I was always high strung....I was resentful every time I went to work and had to listen to her shit......I cant do this again.......

There is one other person who could partner with her but the snake hates her...hates....so she wants me because I am to nice (Stupid) to tell her how I feel about her gossip and spewing venom..................ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.....the dilemma....................
The inappropriateness of her outburst angers me to no end..........the others sat with their mouths dropped open...............................these women love an audience......they don't do these things without one.............We were there to learn, and then go home......not witness the snake coil and strike............

Now I ask myself....why dont I just tell her how I feel?????????
I tell myself..........you do not want this spitting cobra as an enemy....you have no enemies and she would be a very bad place to start............................
I gave it to God............
and I will call the boss first thing this am..........

I totally know what kind of woman you mean... they are the worst. You can always sense negative energy.... I try to stay far away from it as well!

so, what happened? i hope your boss finessed it? if not, can you tell her that you really like HER, but you think your work styles don't gel together, and so you both won't be able to do your best work. or something like that?

let me know. hope it works out! i certainly don't think you should have to work with her.
