Thanks for all the advice. I've been pretty busy (or sick) lately, but I decided to move on from this job since I have a little money saved up. It was starting to affect me negatively and I was feeling like maybe I deserved it. When I went in to voluntarily resign the HR representative asked me if I meant my manager when I said the "environment wasn't for me". Apparently they're building up a case against her so I told them about several of the incidents between her and employees or customers.
Well good for you for being decisive at the very least! are you still leaving though because it seems the environment is about to change, and there might also be an opportunity for advancement coming upWink

I might return if she's fired since HR said they would mark me as rehirable

Seems not a lot of employees last long under her and it's not worth my mental health when I've worked so hard with depression
When people get like that with me I shut down completely, I don't know if it comes from my childhood or what but I completely shut the person off and tune them out and write them off. I don't engage, speak to, or deal with them. When people nag at me especially things get muffled and I zone out and its kind of like the whole Charlie Brown, "Wah, Wah, Wah," Lol, I don't mean to do it but it happens every time. Sometimes people like that aren't able to be placated they just want to dominate and dictate, they aren't interested in other opinions or the person they're talking to's feelings. There isn't much you can do with people like that, if they are reasonable try telling them that you are uncomfortable with the situation and would rather not get into an argument. I work with people like you are talking about, people quit all the time because of her, and she bullies other staff until they quit or get fired, she is friends with the higher ups so what she wants she gets. She can even get people in departments that have nothing to do with her switched to other jobs or have their hours changed. Its not fun but I think there are those types in every work place unfortunately Sad
