I made a thread sometime back about toxic co workers and had good inputs.Now am Troubled Less in the office and no messages etc.. However..I have few queries to be addreased so that it will make me understand the reality of a workplace and also Know what to Tolerate and what not to.. I have been traumatized and grew up in a unhealthy environment where mental abuse is normalized.So even today i suffer to makr good relationships and always on an alert mode with people. I want to know if the below is common in every workplace or am too tolerant.. I work as a CSR..I always try to be polite to my customers coz they want to Get the best for their hard earned money. Some customers can be very smart but everyone is human and needs good service.Thats how I see people. 1) My collegues sweet talk to customers and uses the word “Nasty B****“ behind their back if they are a little strong... 2) the men in my office are now not disturbing but am sure they will start thr flirting mode if i again relax. 3) The other women are older women and I Just cant seem to relate at all.They talk and act like teens..not sure why it should be my problem but just said that.. Are the above common in a office? Is It coz am in a small office in a small group this happens? How about IT industry or any other white collar jobs? Are Office politics less out there and people more Classy and atleast behave with respect? How do you women handle everything and still remain sane? With my anxiety its stressing me out..
