Then she said that the only solution she can think of to deal with my communication problems is for me to join her and my father at their couples therapist.
She said I hadn’t forgotten to do the task from the week before and that it was a deeper issue.
I was desperate for work when my dad said Jill needed a new executive assistant.
My dad started dating this woman (Jill) about two years ago, after he and my stepmom amicably divorced.
Hours later at 11 p.m., she accused me of not doing it and started sending me long, mean texts saying, “This is becoming a problem with you,” etc.
When I said I had done the task, she said she shouldn’t have had to remind me. Everything I said was met with a different criticism, I wasn’t sure what to do, it was late, and this wasn’t productive, so I didn’t respond to her last text (which hadn’t asked anything of me).
Once when I said the way she was talking to me was making me flustered, she yelled that this is how she manages people, that I perceive things the wrong way, and that it’s a problem with me.• She is always coming up with elaborate rumors about our out-of-state staff.
She often says that her former assistant had brain damage; her reasoning was that she was born premature and therefore must have brain damage and be “mentally handicapped.” So-and-so is obese because her kid died and now she’s too emotionally unstable to work.
