Monica D.
New Employee in Distress

I just started a new job and I'm having trouble with an employee who is rude, disruptive and abusive.

I am asking that you join me in prayer. I am a new employee on the usual 90-day probation period. I am having trouble with a co-worker who is determined to not like me. This makes my job very difficult each day. My heart is heavy with sadness. I really like my job and I'm trying to do a good job. I pray that God will shine in her heart and let her see the hurt she has caused. I seek God's guidance and know that he will see me through this adverse time. I am also scared of getting fired if I complain. Please pray for both of us.
Thanks & Amen

Oh Monica, I know how you feel!

It's bad enough trying to get the hang of a new job, without some horror making your life misery. I wonder if they do it to maintain some sort of "control".

Is your co-worker also your supervisor, or on the same rung of the ladder as you? If it's the latter, let yourself shine in comparison by not rising to her tormenting ways.

It's hard to say "grin and bear it", but maybe you'll have to.

If she's your supervisor, this is harder, but again, I think you have to let him or her know that you won't be browbeaten.

Keep your chin up and do the best you can, that's all anyone can ask.

I'll keep you in my thoughts, because I've been there, done that and it can really hurt.

Smile, smile, smile Monica, even if you'd secretly wish you could up-end your waste bin over their head the next time they make a smart remark!
