    Agreed re 'document everything'. Absolutely document the hell out of everything.

    HR... just my useless $0.02CAN, unless you're planning on bringing a harassment/bullying/other complaint against the individual for action directed at you personally I would not do that. You might ask the manager who asked you to document everything whether they think you should speak w HR (but do not ask whether they have spoken w HR - not your business) so the point has at least been raised.

    I have to agree here. If the manager has done nothing and you have it documented, HR can prevent you from retribution.

    A co-worker in an office group of 4 has gotten rather unpleasant to work with. It's to the point where I, my boss, and exec assistant find ourselves apologizing to each other and others externally for the rude comments and actions. It's gotten public on occasion and has been surprisingly unprofessional for someone who's been doing higher level jobs like this one for close to 20 years.

    I fully trust my boss on how she's handling this, yet it's really irksome at times because I am the most frequent target of the rudeness. This coworker really knows her work related stuff in so many ways and absolutely has the capability to not be as rude or dismissive when each of us three try to gently bring this up with her, so it's been puzzling for us all in dealing with this.

    The specific flavor appears to be that any possibility of being left out - as in if I am assigned a task that doesn't include her - causes her to get inappropriately angry and if my boss ever engages in small talk with the various agency representatives or outside stakeholders, she loathes that so much it is apparent on her face for the entire meeting. There's also been disappearances from ordered appearances without communication and very brusque communication with big group planning projects.

    My boss has ordered me to document things since early December, which has been both easy to do and absolutely something I wish wasn't a necessity because I rather badly want to work well with everyone. It's also a near waste of our collective time because the fixes are relatively easy to make in a communication sense.

    I've been mostly internally checking and re-checking my communication and actions to make sure none of the emotional stuff from the almost finished divorce process has been leaking out or coming into things inappropriately. That's been fortunately rock solid and it's been relieving to get stellar feedback from the other coworkers and family + friends on my communication and actions.

    Please document everything and go to HR. I’ve had that bite me in the ass before.

    Hey this is a long time coming, but my health issues have really been bothering me. Thanks to everyone for all of the kind words and help with my financial problem. It really meant a lot that you care. I’m still on the Job market and it does appear to be picking up. In the meantime, does anyone know how best to sell antique china or engagement rings?

    Surprise, surprise, a small cabal of frothing Trumptards are holding the GOP to ransom while choosing a Speaker for the House. Because he's "insufficiantly loyal to Trump". I thought they were supposed to be loyal to their country?

    Nahhhhh, we all know they're loyal to their donors.

    ------------------

    They all need to be hung. By their tiny appendages.


    It's about more than that... they want power. And the ability to derail the legislative process....

    'Some of their demands have been easy, like ending remote voting, removing metal detectors from outside the House chamber[...] But the group is also pushing some tougher sells for McCarthy, like giving members the ability to offer any relevant amendment on appropriations bills, allowing amendment votes on any bill if there are a certain number of Republicans cosponsoring, and reinstating a rule that would allow members to call for a motion to remove the speaker at any time.

    [...] if Republicans are already going to have trouble passing legislation with such a slim and unruly majority, then the difficulty would only be compounded if every member could offer amendments. A common tactic of the minority is offering politically tricky amendment votes on legislation to put members on the record, whether that be on abortion, Confederate statues, or any other politically thorny issue.

    Another tactic is to get a vote on what's called a "poison pill" amendment, in which the amendment is adopted with a majority but then sinks the overall legislation.

    [...]

    What conservatives are actually fighting for is a radical change to how the House conducts its business—and it's a change that McCarthy has been resistant to make.

    Ultimately, McCarthy's calculus may be that he'd rather be speaker under almost impossible conditions than not be speaker and preserve the ability of someone else to govern more effectively.'

    Kevin McCarthy's Hostage Crisis Reaches Its Climax


    Trump on Truth Social:

    'VOTE FOR KEVIN, CLOSE THE DEAL, TAKE THE VICTORY, & WATCH CRAZY NANCY PELOSI FLY BACK HOME TO A VERY BROKEN CALIFORNIA, THE ONLY SPEAKER IN U.S. HISTORY TO HAVE LOST THE 'HOUSE' TWICE! [...] DO NOT TURN A GREAT TRIUMPH INTO A GIANT & EMBARRASSING DEFEAT. IT'S TIME TO CELEBRATE, YOU DESERVE IT. [...] If Republicans are going to fight, we ought to be fighting Mitch McConnell and his domineering, China loving BOSS, I mean wife, Coco Chow. The harm they have done to the Republican Party is incalculable. Today, he couldn't be elected 'Dog Catcher' in Kentucky (Sadly, he only won because of my Endorsement, went up 21 points - SORRY!) [...] TAKE THE VICTORY AND RUN!!!'

    Just read Trump’s tweet muse on a news article… damn that is scary. I hope this sort of shit doesn’t actually have any power…
