I’ve been having problems with a co-worker lately. I should probably talk to my boss about it. I don’t like confrontation, and I don’t like going to someone to say, “He’s being mean to me and hurting my feelings!”. I want to take the person aside and say something to them privately, but every time I gear myself up to do it my stomach knots up when the opportunity to say something comes up. This person has been a real asshole lately and I doubt they’re going to change. I haven’t been enjoying work like I used to, and with everything that’s been going on in my personal life the last thing I need is to dread going into work.
