Wow, thanks for all the help and support!
Yes, everyone I talk to seems to think that contacting the police would be a bad idea. I'd just hate it if she went to them first. Hindsight is always
20/20 because we know what happened after.
Most likely this will come down to a formal meeting, between my employer and the store manager that my boss is contracted to clean for. I have done
right for about a year and, to me, I was forced to stand up for myself because nothing was working by being the good guy. I stayed on the right side
for as long as I did, at great emotional cost to myself, so that I could say that I was on the right side all along.
Thanks for mentioning about the HR department needing to do something about this. I did actually ask my employer to ask the manager why she was being
scheduled to work on all my work nights, after all the problems there have been, when the floors need to be done at night but she doesn't need to
cashier on the night shift, esp. the nights I work there.
I am still waiting to hear from my boss (I mean besides emails (we can't seem to catch one another.) I was asked if I could cover tonight because the
part-time worker was fired for various reasons (basically, incompetence.) But I said I really need a couple days to recoup from this woman. I said
she's put me through a great deal of stress, more than I ever explained to him.
Oh, and I actually do have a small voice recorder and it was an expensive one too! I got that originally to take audio notes for story ideas while I
walked, but never really used it. It would be tricky to use at work, as my free pocket is used for my scraper and paper (I've had 'late summer'
allergies, even though it's mid-October.) It could always fit in a back pocket. It does record things very well. Wish I'd thought of this myself a
while back! Most likely she'll watch her words and actions for now, expecting management to be watching video footage, and esp. as now she is feeling
like she is the victor.
She has no idea what kind of fighter I am though. I've given her a free pass because A) She's a woman, and B) She works where I work. But she's made a
serious allegation against me (and a FALSE one,) so I plan to fight this all the way! I need to go back to ignoring her and pushing for a serious
meeting about this serious matter.
