Do you remember When's-Your-Baby-Due Woman???
I met her daughter.
It was even less pleasant.
My blood pressure still feels elevated from the whole thing this morning.
When's-Your-Baby-Due's Daughter bursts into my office half an hour before the appointment that she scheduled - in other words, the time that SHE picked. Yelled at me. Informed me that I had been both undignified and unprofessional in a letter her brother received. .... I said "You mean that letter that didn't have my name on it?" meaning THE LETTER I HAD NO PART IN WRITING OR SENDING??
She yelled for a few more minutes about This and That, all things that I had no control over and that she had no knowledge of, and then stormed out the same way she came, barely letting me say a word.
Oh, I should add that she said "How long have you been here? This must be a good learning experience for you." ... Assuming that because I am young I must A) be new and B) not know what I'm doing. ((I'm new-ish to the position, but I have worked in the building for SEVEN years.))
In the three interactions I have had the displeasure of having with this woman, she has been neither DIGNIFIED nor PROFESSIONAL, even though I'm apparently the one lacking both qualities if you ask her.
What makes me even more mad is that she made me CRY in front of my BOSS. I took several minutes to calm and collect myself before I went into my boss's office to tell her what had happened and I still burst into tears the second I sat down. I'm not sure if I'm mad at her or myself for that.... BOTH.
I thought I had gotten over the whole thing. The day went on and I was fine, but now that I'm home in this quiet house, the details are replaying in my head and I'm so dang angry.
I'm going to go take out my aggression by working on the bathroom remodel upstairs and if that doesn't do the trick, I'm going to go beat up the StairMaster.
