Embarrassing!! But couldn't help it... and I'm a pretty tough girl! I LOVE my job, love everyone I work with except one person who I have strived to be kind to, empathize with, etc. For the first couple weeks of my new job, I thought I may have somehow offended him, that I somehow deserved his angry outbursts, tirades, and assignment of random and strange tasks. Now I realize that he's just a grown man thirty years my senior who gets his kicks out of bullying me. Almost everyone in the office has noticed and is appalled by his behavior and have approached me to sympathize, although they note that his attitude towards me is notably worse than towards anyone else... and any apologies I make for whatever mistakes he feels I make only seem to piss him off more. He's literally not civil to me: he will pass me without saying hello in the morning and leave without saying good-night. I hate to be a wimp or a complainer, but it's really gotten to the point where I wince when we have to work together. I work in a mid-size architecture firm, so it's not like we have an HR department or anyone. The person I work most closely with besides this awful man is one of the principals, whom I ADORE. I've thought about talking to the principal about how I TURNED DOWN TWO OFFERS to take a job where I am daily belittled to the point of tears. Or maybe this is just how working relationship are and I should suck it up? I've worked before and have NEVER been treated like this. Anyway, any advice on how to handle this would be appreciated. And thanks for reading.
