An Office Situation

Recommended Posts

At my place of business there are 5 Managers, 2 women and 3 men and then the boss, a man. Are mostly "on the field" but today all are in.

One of the women mgrs is not well liked, let's just say she has the reputation of a :medusa:around here and has the same reputation with some of our vendors and other agencies related office staff.

So today, 3 men mgrs and boss decide to go to lunch. She comes out of her office and is all ::thunderously:: because she was not invited to go to lunch with them. She proceeds to walk around the office and complain about how rude they were not to ask her and she lets everyone know she is PO'd.

They come back and as she is stomping, literally stomping out the door she calls the mgrs & the boss "rude".

Do ya'll think she should be reprimanded for that? :confused: And what should she be called on?

Oh and to Jay? You met her. :lol:

No. She shouldn't be reprimanded. Bitty or not.. They are wrong for not asking her to lunch too. Looks bad on their part. :?

Really? There is another possibility. She may have been left out on purpose.

They may have been having a lunch meeting about her behavior and what to do about her. If that was the case, her stomping and braying may have sealed her doom. you may not be seeing her around next week.

Probably handled wrong on both sides. She should have been asked but then when she wasn't there should not have been a tantrum. Sometimes good workers are allowed to show their :moon:

Hope she is a good worker. Otherwise, the boss may say it is time for her to stop the tantrums

I tend to agree with this satement myself. I don't think people should be forced to invite people to lunch. I get along pretty well with everyone aound here and I am not always asked to go to lunch. Sometimes, I am sometimes, I'm not.

To answer the question regarding the other female mgr. She had lunch and was actually eating it when the others went to lunch, so she wasn't actually asked but they knew she was already having her lunch.

I do think based on my observations that they chose to go without her because of how she is. It's not their fault she's unlikeable. :roll:

However, she showed disrespect when she called them "rude" out loud and stomped off. IMHO that is not right.

I'll let you all know how it turns out cause the way I understand it Boss was not happy :shock:!!!

Methuss saw your post after I posted mine. Yes, I believe it was on purpose but not to discuss her behavior, it's because they want to enjoy their lunch. Sorry to say, but her not being liked is not a surprise. I'm just surprised she does not get it.

She should have kept it to herself, not spread her ranting around the office, that's just unprofessional and a very bad example - and a sure shoot-yourself-in-the-foot move. Your place on the management ladder doesn't mean you automatically get invited along by others in 'the club', and she clearly thinks that's what should happen.

I wouldn't blame the boss at all for calling her on the carpet for her behavior.

IMO, lunch is personal time, and I should be able to spend it with whomever I choose without worrying about whom I going to offend. In fact, that's probably why they wouldn't be invited to go with me. I am the only male in an office of 8 woman. I've made it clear that I will not be offended if they do not ask me to eat with them - they still don't get it. The younger ones think its personal.

we have a women here that is kinda the same deal. Shes in management but is awful at her job. She also is one heck of a control freek. Just once I'd like her to ask me to do something. Not demand it. She is also the #1 reason sales are down, she is rude to the customers, prices things way to high (hey, when your 3000 OVER what the dealer would charge for the same engine replacement. you got a issue) but management loves her because she is the go to gal to fire someone, or chew them out.

I am on a sinking ship. we've started calling this shop the SS Titanic. It's not a question of if things get really bad and it sinks, its a question of when. As long as she is at the helm, it's just a matter of time.

opps, break must be over. she is demanding I do work that does not pay.

I agree with Lady.......when a mature adult stomps around name calling her coworkers is childish behavior. I teach little kids all day long that it is not nice to call other names or to say things that are not nice about others........! Wow, maybe it was a PMS day!! LOL

Her stomping around was very unprofessional. Especially calling the other managers rude in earshot of others. You have a problem with somebody do your name calling/discussion somewhere in private. In my workplace(military) that is grounds for a reprimand and a very stern talking to. We're always told that if you don't respect the person you always have to respect their rank. I'm not in a supervisory position yet, but will be soon(I hope). If supervisors(managers) don't respect other managers it can have a trickle effect down to the lower levels and then the integrity of the entire workplace goes to shambles.
