I love my job but there is this girl who has been there longer than me & trained me but she treats me like a child & finds fault in everything I do! Worse part is she's 20 & I'm 41! I actually find myself fearing her! any advice???

Kris, I feel sorry for you! I'm in a similar situation. She has my boss snowed and treats me in a very patronizing way. I've asked her not to. Complained to the higher ups, etc. with no help in sight! I don't know what to tell you, but I'll pray for you and hope that Karma gets her sooner than later. If you are a praying woman say one for me. It's draining and I hate dreading going to work every day wondering what she has in store for me. I just try to stay out of her way!

in all honesty you have to find a way to work with her . Age has nothing to do with anything in the work force . She trained you and has more experience . If her behavior is not tolerable go to your boss . Are you having difficulty or is she being too much ? Keep hanging in there ! Play her game let her take the lead . Work with her perhaps she will change up a bit

In some companies including mine we pride ourselves at being condescending and brash as possible in a tongue and cheek way in certain offices. Especially around the offices of company council. Naturally it's done for laughs and to keep people on their toes but some inter office emails and memos DEFINITELY would not seem very civil to an uninitiated outsider. It is accepted in some lawfirms too because it keeps us in sharp practice and ensures you can verbally lay someone out with the fewest words with no notice.
When we do timesheets sometimes we load them up with bizarre stuff just to keep the help on their toes and checking exact details.
Just give it back to her double that's all this is not a problem it's a teaching opportunity.

Sa far as anyone knows and that's good. You should be as curt sometime it cuts through a lot of BS and shows people right up front they're not gonna win if they start in with the BS.
If only your pop had such panache you might not have washed out into pubic work.

It's Cretin above. He isn't curt, he's a moron without pubic hair and no panache...no bs, he's a loser.
