I've been a victum of a very aggressive Serial Work Place BULLY for over 10 years now The following is a brief summary of my story:
To introduce myself I'll tell you my story of being Bullied by what I now call a very aggressive Serial Work Place Bully. I first met him while I was working for a company in Wilmington DE. When I first met him in 2001 he acted like he was my best friend. I later figured out that he was gathering information about me and my family.
In 2005, in a matter of a few hours he went from being my best friend to my absolute worst nightmare. He constantly harassed me in the work place from 2005 till 2007 when my position was outsourced to India. He got away with his very aggressive form of bullying day in and day out. When the two of us are in the same room, he acted like he was going to kill me but did not attack me in front of the others in the work place. He did assault me in a dark parking lot telling me that I am not welcome there. Managers and HR kept telling him to stop it but he continued on. Most of his assaults were mental , and I was even diagnosed with PTSD.
During that time I began reading "The Bully At Work" and to my surprise, he was doing a lot of things that I read in the first 6 to 8 chapters. He would not leave me alone. When I left the company in 8/2007 I was glad that I would not have to put up with his harsh intimidating behavior or hear him constantly defaming my character.
I went to two employment lawyers and they both told me that since it would be considered heresy, that there was really nothing that I could do. All that would happen is that I would end up spending a lot of money.
After I left the company, I worked around the country as a Cobol Programmer Analyst on Tandem systems. Then after I was laid off from a company in Little Rock AR in 2012, I was hired as a consultant for a company north of Pittsburgh PA. I was excited and I moved up there.
On the second day, someone stopped me as I was turning into the parking lot, then I saw this Bully slowly walking across and going into the entrance where I was working. How did this guy know I was working there? I was like shocked like a deer staring in the head lights. Anyway, long story short, I witnessed him with his typical defamation of my character, and his dirty looks like he's about to attack me. HE WILL NOT STOP. I don't know why he was there except that he was visiting a friend or interviewing in an adjoining company.
I went to another Employment lawyer, he thoroughly read my story, and he said the same thing that the other two lawyers told me in the past. I couldn’t do anything. That I would end up spending a lot of money and would lose. I was terminated three weeks after my boss told me that I was doing a great job. To keep my sanity through all this experience, I began teaching myself android programming and that is what I'm now doing, while in my early retirement.
I want to write a book about my horrifying experience and now that I published 4 android anti-bullying apps, of which I became possessed with completing, I see this bully reviewing my LinkedIn profile. He's keeping track of me and I'm afraid that if I begin working somewhere else that he would somehow find me and start up with his Bullying. I created a blog and web site hoping to find anybody else who has run into similar circumstances. I'm hoping to find support here. I've been bullied in the past and this Bully is like every bully I had problems with all rolled into one. Thanks for your support.
