So this happened a few hours ago now. I'm pg and am trying to quit smoking. I've cut down drastically, but it's the last 2-3 I can't seem to drop completely. As I went from a heavy smoker (30 pack easy, per day) to just 2-3 I think I'm doing well. I know some women can stop completely straight away, Im just not one of them for a few reasons.
Anyway, I was at work this afternoon and we work on our own during the day and I'd been busy all day, to the point I was impressed I managed to eat a whole sandwich in one sitting. The person who replaces me at the end of my shift started an hour before I finished and immediately started having a go at me over little things. Whatever, don't really care.
i finally had enough and went out for a smoke, only to be told by my work mate that I shouldn't be smoking. I told him I'd appreciate him not butting his nose into my business. He replied that as my baby can't defend itself, then he'd say what he likes in its defense. So I went outside and called my manager and let her know I'd be leaving early and the reason why. She said its fine. Not a problem, etc. I went back inside to get my things to leave to discover he had stuck the "smoking causes harm to your unborn baby" picture we got from the tobacco company over our computer screen. Because I left early he started having a go at me and carrying on and swearing. I simply left and contactedmy manager about the picture.
Im just so angry. I can't sleep and I don't want to go back to work. I'm lodging a formal harassment complaint about him and I don't really know what the point of the vent is, just wanted to get it out really. I'm lucky my manager is so supportive and as equally as angry at him on my behalf. I think I'm just upset that someone I work with believes they have the right to speak to me in such a way, or bully(?) me at my work place.
