Have a problem at work I have never encountered before. An overbearing Office Manager (she's only got one person to manage - me, but she's the bosses wife).
I don't know how I am going to cope with this. It honestly seems like in every office situation there is some problem. Its always a different problem, but its always other people. The only exception was for a few years in the early 90s. Oh, I can't help but wish for those days back again-- which is impossible, of course.
I have a problem with being treated like I am 10 years old, by someone who exhibits no self control even over small things that don't matter...
I saw this on Facebook today, which seems to be relevant to the situation:
Conquer the angry man by love.
Conquer the ill-natured man by goodness.
Conquer ...the miser with generosity.
Conquer the liar with truth.

Very difficult though. I can't let this person get a space inside my head.
