Hi ladies. I rarely vent about anything, but I am so mad I won't be able to sleep tonight if I don't get this off my chest.... and I am also looking for advice.
I've worked at my current job for about a year. I never had any problems with anyone, including my supervisor. She was always kind to me and praised my work. About two weeks ago we had the new interns come in (4 of them) and she has turned into a completely different person. She often makes jokes about my pregnancy and how I look (even though I have not gained more than 20 pounds and the baby is right on target) and my job performance (comments about me missing days due to hyperemesis). Today I was back at work after missing a day yesterday due to being sick for the past week, throwing up everything for the past 72 hours and feeling like I was about to pass out. Keep in mind that I have taken about 7 days of PTO throughout the entire pregnancy. The rest of the time I have dragged myself to work. So, she was interviewing someone for my maternity leave and I said to her "She looks very nice". Her response? "Yes, she is awesome. I might fire you and hire her". I couldn't believe she said that and in front of the interns! I was furious and responded back by saying "Go ahead. I will collect". She didn't realize what I was talking about and said "Collect what?" and I said "unemployment". She then got mad and began bragging about the "Excellent lawyers the company has". Like I said before, I was very angry so I snapped at her and said "Go ahead, try to fire a pregnant woman."
I know I should have kept my mouth closed but this woman has said negative things towards me over and over again for the past two weeks. She doesn't stop! My DH doesn't seem to think I am over dramatic and trust me, he will let me know if I was the one crossing a line. On this situation he is as angry as I am and even more that she is using the pregnancy to her advantage.
But I want to know from your perspective, the wonderful ladies that work and have to deal with things like this all the time.....Am I wrong or is she crossing the line here? And regardless of your opinion ( I will value ALL of them), what would you do?
Thanks in advance. Hope you are all doing well. We are almost there!!
