I am very glad that worked out for you.
In my workplace, the way it is, and the type of workplace it is, that would have been so totally inappropriate for me to do. I would have lost my job
over it. Not that I wouldn't have minded going toe to toe with this person, mind you.
In the end, all it would have done is ended with me being drug down to her level, which I refused to allow to happen, though.
She was attempting to manipulate me to attack back, to respond in kind, so I would have disciplinary action taken on me.
In all respects, she was trying to get me fired. Since the attempts to get me to respond in kind failed, that is when she moved to the lies and rumors
in an attempt to slander me.
She was a highly manipulative person, and it is very frightening how calculating she was. You could watch her, looking for the "right" people to be,
or not be around before she approached me. You could definitely tell this was not her first rodeo.
When the stare down attack happened, the supervisor was a mere 15 feet away, but busy doing her job, so the whole event passed totally and completely
unnoticed by her, yet was witnessed by at least 4 other people, including my new trainee. It was fully designed to humiliate me in front of the new
trainee, and an attempt to make her lose respect for me. Thankfully, the new trainee saw through it.
She did end up sending a letter of commendation to my manager and myself after her training was over. She is a very sweet person, and I am glad to
have had the opportunity to have worked with and trained her. She is doing an awesome job in her new position.
