One day at work, I wont tell the whole story because that would take too long lol, one of the managers asked me to do something when I was on my break and when I told her no because I was ON MY BREAK and trying to shop she got extremely mad at me. So later she took me in the office and said all these untrue things about me. I knew in my heart that there was no way I could sit there and let her do that so I said things back to defend myself. Of course she barely let me get a word in. I was pissed, but I went on with the rest of the day as I always do. But the next day, even though it was my day off, I went to my store and sat down with my boss. I very calmly told her what had happened the previous day. The good thing is, I have worked with her for many many years, and she knows me well and knows I am a good worker. I never complain to any of the managers at work about anything. When I get upset I just take deep breaths and move on. But this time was different. I wasn't being a tattle tale I was standing up for what I knew was right. When I finished talking my boss told me not to worry. I wasn't going to get in trouble. She would talk to the manager who had yelled at me. I thanked her and left. Since then I have had no problems with said manager.
I felt good that I had stood up for myself. I will never let anyone treat me with disrespect again. So whether it's in your personal life, or at work, always stand up for yourself when you need to because if you don't, no one else will, and you are your own best supporter! BE STRONG! Lesson learned.
