I have been told to do something that I'm not very happy about and other people have told me that what I've been asked to do isn't fair. The person that told me makes a habit of telling people what to do, often in inappropriate circumstances and also without full facts. They often ask for tasks to be completed asap when on further investigation they don't need to be done at that time or aren't being done at all by anyone else. Communication with this person is generally poor, so is understanding of situations (work and personal). They often pass the buck for things they've done / not done / said to others. They are a look at me, listen to me, see how great I am type, rather than actually being effective in their job. I am frequently overlooked by this person in favour of other people. My thoughts / opinions / feelings aren't valued / listened to. I seem to get the raw end of the deal and to try and get anything better I have to fight particularly hard (usually to no effect). I am under 30, but instead of being treated like a professional I can often feel that I'm being spoken to like I'm one of the pupils. The thought of seeing this person in work makes me sick. I'll often go out of my way to avoid them but sometimes it is inevitable as they are my manager. As my superior I generally accept what this person says and act on it, regardless of my personal beliefs, but I've lost all respect for them, their professionalism and their commitment to helping me develop as a professional. Obviously I've missed out details here, but is this potentially bullying, or am I just overreacting? I'm totally unsure as I've got so many other things going on that I don't know if I'm reacting in the way I am because I'm stressed or what!
