She sounds a bit petty, but the best way to deal with it is by continuing to DO YOU. Don’t worry about her or what she’s saying. At work, do a good job and don’t give her any ammunition to use against you. It can be tough, but just remember that your coworkers won’t always be your best friends but you’re an adult and you can handle it!

What did she say about you at HH?

A little much pwc1. Aren’t we grown ups. Can’t you approach her and make nice. It’s a small world don’t make enemies over something so petty. Figure out a way to make nice... nature of the business

I literally don’t care about what people think of me. I care about what a manager think of my performance, beyond this reason, she can do and say what she wants. I do not care. The only way this can affect me is if my reviews reflect her dislike towards me and in that case I will dispute the review and take this to HR. Think about it, you only have control over yourself. You cannot change the manager, you can only change the way the situation affects you. Please do that, even if you leave there, you may meet people like her at your next job. This is why I do not do any form of small talks at work. No one can ever say I said that. If am doing small talk, it means am listening.

I don't mind the occasional long day, but consistent 14-15 hour days aren't gonna fly anymore.
