These are some examples of workplace mobbing at a local surgical center I worked at for a year from 2006-2007 before I knew I was a TI. I was employed as an RN and worked in the pre-op area by myself or occasionally with one other RN. Harassment came from other RN’s, MD’s, administrative staff, and patients. Multiple other people were hired at the same time as me, all of whom I now suspect were perps.
Spreading rumors that I was stealing food/ drinks from the break room. Coworkers were told to peer into my tote bag periodically. An office manager would regularly spy on me while in the break room either through an exterior glass door or by walking in and inspecting the glass doored cooler full of drinks.
Due to the above rumor, the exterior door/exit in the break room was locked and another exit had to be used. There was a skit in the pre-op area one day with the OR manager and an MD. He asked “Why is that door locked” Her directed response was “Oh there were too many bags going in and out, too many bags”. She was such a dipshit. I called her Hot Lips, like Margaret Houlihan from MASH. Locking this exit was likely a fire code violation.
One afternoon I witnessed an operating room nurse filling her bags with drinks from the cooler and letting herself out the locked break room door with her own key. She left the same time as me. I now figure she was stealing and putting the blame on me. Another OR nurse witnessed this and distracted me while the nurse filled her bag with items.
Due to a few filing errors w/ incoming faxes, all filing responsibilities were suddenly removed from the pre-op area to another office area. I’m a nurse, not a secretary. Every effort is made to make the target seem incompetent and dumb. One secretary even spread rumors I was retarded.
A female ENT MD berated me in front of a patient for not being able to find part of the patient’s record. “Are you new ?” she blurted as I was crouched down putting TED hose on a patient.***
This same MD was transferred to the pre op section when she called early one morning to ask about a patient. The call should have been transferred to the Operating room. When I answered the phone all she said was her name. I was confused and told her I didn’t page her to which response she got super pissed. When I saw her later in the locker room I attempted a sincere apology. She acted like a fucking demon and said “Yeah you better leave” when I headed for the door. Wow. She later complained to my boss about me, before I had a chance to tell my boss how inappropriate she was. What a cunt.
Constant interruptions of my work and hijacking of my charts. Directed conversation “They’ll hire anyone these days.” Making fun of my weight, how much I eat. Not covering me on my breaks, interrupting my breaks. Telling me I can’t start work before a certain time in the morning. Operating room staff congregating in my work area, setting off alarms on machines. Staff mimicking questions I asked the office manager.
Since no one covered my breaks, I would take a short break before and after everyone else ate lunch. The surgery center provided a bagel breakfast and lunch for staff every day. The bagels were left out until late am until the Operating manager caught on to my routine. She promptly had the janitor put everything away before my late am break. Once during a late afternoon break I was interrupted because no one was covering me. I heard another nurse in the break room state I was taking 2 lunches. I came in to work before everyone and they all went to lunch before me. If that cunt only knew.
MD’s complaining about how I put the charts together. Secretaries delaying the charts to hold me up. Patient names frequently misspelled so the chart had to go back to the front office for corrections. Secretaries causing delays in the front office so I would get blamed for delays in pre-op. Pressure and harassment by MD’s and operating room staff due to resulting delays in pre-op.
I adopted a Mom cat and 2 kittens. I was going to give one to my nephew but he already got one. I asked around at work and a secretary offered a home right away at her Father-in-laws. He just lost his wife. It was too easy. She came over that same day and picked him up. His name was Dylan. When I returned to the office in the summer of 2012 to visit, this same secretary told me Dylan died recently at the groomers’. “He was only six and he was healthy…” There was heavy gaslighting and PsyOps going on there now and I’m not sure if she was lying. But it was definitely meant to upset me and it did.
Anesthesia MD ridiculing me to other staff. Compared me to “superstar” character on Saturday Night Live (“Mary Katherine”) and had other staff start calling me “superstar” behind my back within earshot. I have a strong suspicion they had a hidden camera set up in the women’s locker room and bathroom there.
MD berated me for “watching him” after he hijacked a chart I was working on. Berated by secretary for walking up to front office to ask them to pick up a call I couldn’t transfer, “I thought I told you not to come up here anymore. I am going to speak to ___ about this.” Super cunt.
Owner MD of surgical center started a rumor I made his wife cry after I asked for more silverware at a house party she threw for a coworker who got engaged. “I don’t know about you..” he stated after walking into my work area one day. What the fuck don’t you know about me???***
I was also “brighted” by this same MD at the party mentioned above while sitting at an outdoor table conversing with a coworker’s husband, turning on a huge blinding overhead light directly over our table. At this same party I was told by another RN I could not sign a card for the coworker because I did not donate for his gift. I was never asked for a donation.
Contracted maintenance worker that was just gross. Would stand directly in my path changing ceiling bulbs. Bend over and show lots of butt crack for extended periods of time. Acted like he couldn’t wait for me to leave so he could take over my desk/ work area since he didn’t have one. Ogled me after I changed out of my uniform.
Patients that knew personal information about me. Patients evasive, demanding, impatient, acting out.
Operation room manager berating me in front of patient for not providing blankets to the patients when her staff could just as easily do it. Berated by same manager in front of a patient for having her stapler in my work area (which was already there when I was hired.) After she left my work area this time the patient asked incredulously, “Is she going to be my nurse?”
L. was an RN hired a few months after me to work in pre-op and recovery room. The first time I met her she just stared at me blankly. She reminded me of that zombie episode from the Flintstones…Yabba…Dabba..Dooooo.. with the spiraling eyeballs. She immediately proceeded to go into advanced perp hijinks which included: Undermining me, alienating me, gossiping about me, getting me blamed for errors/making me look incompetent, shirking responsibilities, and doing the “flakey” act.
When L. worked in Pre-op she acted like she wanted to be in the Recovery room and vice versa. She would flit back and forth on her own volition and once left one of my patients high and dry in the middle of checking her vital signs. One of our duties were to make “burritos” which were pt gowns and slippers rolled up in a plastic tote bag. Since I was conscientious about making a steady supply of these, L. would intentionally neglect to do it on my days off, leaving double the work for me when I returned.
One of L.’s highlight skits was the morning she showed up late when she was supposed to be prepping all the eye surgery patients. She waited until I went ahead and started prepping them myself because I didn’t want to just let them sit there. As soon as I took the first patient back, she appeared (tipped off by the secretary) and started admitting my patients. When I asked her what (the fuck) she was doing, she answered “Well I wasn’t just going to let them sit there!” s.u.p.e.r. c.u.n.t.
MD’s complaining about me shutting the doors of patients rooms while they waited to see their doctors. Their right to privacy trumps the MD’s need for convenience. I noticed when MD’s family members came in as patients, the doors stayed shut the whole time.
Ridiculed by the Operating Room manager in front of my boss during a mock fire drill. I was instructed to put post-it notes on the closed doors of any patient rooms that were occupied. When I didn’t demonstrate this right away, Hot Lips said to my boss “just look at her..” Why the fuck would you put a post-it note on a patient’s door during a fire? The first thing you are supposed to do during a fire is rescue the patient (RACE). The exit door was 3 feet away FFS. What a dumb cunt.
Berated by the Recovery Room manager one morning while admitting a pediatric patient. Both parents came to the surgery center but one stayed in the waiting room. “Why didn’t you tell them both to come into pre-op?” she asked when she showed up 30 minutes later, annoyed. “They are friends of mine”. If they are your friends and you were expecting them, then why didn’t you come in earlier to meet them?
Stalked by 3 different coworkers on 3 different occasions: at the beach, at the market, and at a conference. The coworker “friend” who helped me get this job also engaged in the harassment and also gaslighting after I got mobbed at my new job in 2012.
Excluded from invitations to parties/gatherings outside work. When I was invited it was solely so I could be the “stooge” and “the butt of all the jokes” for entertainment.
When I returned to inquire about being rehired in the summer of 2012, overt targeting and PsyOps was in full swing there complete with look alikes and gaslighting. A huge American flag hung in the waiting room. Many of the regular staff had left but Hot Lips was ready and waiting for me.
This was just one of the many jobs I have been mobbed at but the harassment had definitely escalated to and unprecedented level for that time period. They would not hire me again in 2012 (even though the boss stated she would when I left in 2007) and asking to be rehired there is probably hands down the most insane thing I have ever done, if anything at all.
A couple of these examples have stars *** after then for a reason because I like to pint out common recurring themes/ trends with perps.
***Body language is very important to perps, theirs and yours. Notice how they always try to stand on any type of elevation, put their hands across/above a door frame, fill up space and look big/tall. Targets need to make a conscious effort to do this too. Any TI body language that shows weakness provokes the perp like an animal.
***The second theme is making up stories out of thin air/fantasy about the target in order to create hatred for them. It’s like a hate “wet dream”. ‘I can’t find any real reason to hate you so I’m just going to pull a real zinger out of my ass and jerk off to that’. It reminds me of a story I read about an abusive factory farm worker who repeatedly raped a pig with a stick. In order to justify the abuse, the worker made up a fantasy story that he was about to have sex with a beautiful woman and the pig scared her off. This is the caliber and quality of the kinds of rumors that perps start about targets every day. It is sheer psychopathy and demonic.
