It's been way too long since I've blogged. Sorry to all my dear readers. Are you still there? I hope so.

I have a ton to catch you all up on- ballroom dancing going well, summer trips, work, etc., but for now, I need to vent.

Yes, this is one of those posts. Prepare yourself.

Do you know anyone that is just poisonous? I have a coworker like that now. This person creates a negative environment for everyone. I manage it fairly well, but this has gone on for over 2 years and she just got promoted, so it's just too much right now. I realize as I write this that it's feasible (not probable) she could read this, although I don't really care at this point.

She just sucks the life out of me. Every interaction is difficult. I feel like I have to protect myself from her because she finds ways to undermine me or anyone else who's a threat. She's horrible to work with and unfortunately, her behavior has just been validated because she got a promotion.

Worse- none of the managers see it because she responds very differently to them. She also has one very important gift in corporate america- the gift of bullshit. Yes, she is a smooth talker all the way. She can make anything sound fantastic. Or, she just uses so many useless corporate phrases that everyone thinks she knows what she's talking about (or it distracts them long enough that they forget what the issue was to begin with). She can perfectly blame other people while making herself sound amazing and understanding. Bullshit. That's all that it is. Bullshit. And I'm so sick of it.
