  • Someone is actively trying to get rid of me

    Hey.

    So, I have a guard, a forty-something, short, portly man who failed his police FTO and is doomed to security work that is currently trying to get me fired.

    Thing is, it's absolute bull**** and everyone knows it.

    I do my job, and then some. I volunteer, and I help with workplace training around the hospital in my spare time. I follow orders and know how to do my job, and I do it. Well.

    Thing is, this guy and I had a confrontation a while back, because this guy has a short fuse. I cut him off when he went on a tirade because I was on a call that was on a time constraint. (Sorry we had a morgue call, there was a dead body sitting in the hallway and a bunch of nurses looking very frustrated and impatient) I had had a question about the morgue, as I was still new to THIS hospital, so I called dispatch, he was dispatch. It was a quick "yes or no" question, and instead he could have gone on for hours. I had to cut him off, again, dead people in hallway, impatient nurses from floor.

    Ever since then he has been on my ****. He has, in front of witnesses, called me a 'condescending bitch'. He regularly gets pissed at me and verbally attacks me. He is now 'documenting' everything I do.

    Another time I stepped up to shut him up, was when we were in dispatch - which by the way anyone can get into since it's a service location and people come in all the time for badge issues, parking, etc - during business hours and he was going on about how if people are suicidal they need to just do it so we don't have to deal with them, and that he'll help some of the people in the mental health crisis unit do it so we 'don't have to deal with them anymore'. After a good ten minutes of hearing this, with sound effects of bodies hitting pavement after jumping off a bridge and using a 'spatula' to get them off the road, I told him to chill and just that it was time for a new conversation. My point really was that a doctor or a person from administration could walk in at any second and see a bunch of guards sitting around a guy threatening to help people commit suicide.

    A couple weeks ago a patient assaulted a guard. He was being taken to jail, escorted by the roaming cop, me, and another guard. We brought the detained prisoner to the squad, and the other guard went back in to get a face sheet. Then the cop said to wait there while he went to get more paperwork. I followed the cops orders and stood by the squad. Then I hear the asshole on the radio saying the patient's belongings were in the unit still. I went on the radio and said I could't get them, and asked if he could bring them himself. (And, honestly, this guy just got into a fight with someone I really respected, I don't give a **** if he leaves his stinky shoes in the unit) Soon enough the other guard and the cop come back. And the cop wasn't wasting any time, and took the guy off to jail. Like thirty seconds after, the other guard and I are walking back, and the asshole comes out, patient belonging bags in hand. I shrugged and said too late, that the roamer wanted out I told him we didn't have his belongings yet. The asshole went off on me, yelling at me and telling me that he told me to do it. I said I was watching the squad, and that when a cop tells me to do something I do it. This guy then screams back, "FIRST TIME FOR EVERYTHING" and then went back down the hall grumbling. I went after, pissed, but the other guard stopped me. That other guard would have my back when it got brought up to the supervisor later.

    Thing is, I do nothing wrong. I have never screwed up. In fact, he screws up quite a bit. But he's making it a hostile workplace, and I'm honestly getting tired of it. My supervisor and manager know all about it, and my supervisor is just annoyed by him. He told him straight up to shut up because apparently this guy rants about me when I'm not there. My supervisor told me he 'doesn't get it' and that I've 'never done anything to him'. Still, nothing's being done.

    The more I work with him the more I see why he failed his FTO with police.

    This guy is now documenting everything I do, and sending it to the manager. Looking for anything and everything to get me fired.

    Ideas? I really don't want to be the narc that goes to HR.

    Honestly talking to him guard to guard is not going to work so your going to have to kick it up the chain for this to stop. Talk to your managers about having them stop this harassing behavior, keep track of names, dates and times you talked to your management, plus their responses to your complaints. Document Everything and one of two things will happen . The first one is fat boy will have his come to Jesus moment and get his head out of his ass or two the company will show him the door after you have given him enough rope to hang himself. Keep notes as you were keeping data for your wrongful termination case as you might need them for that. If anything you have a good discrimination case, and harassment case you could build as long as you notify management to what is actually going on.

      Aye. When I talked to the supervisor he said the most they could do would be to move him to another shift. My thought on it was great, so now he can talk smack about me to another shift. Coward.

          Thats a start...and if it continues, hostile work environment claims tend to get attention.

              Agreed. Document every single time this guy steps over the line. Ask those that witness his asinine behavior to submit supporting documentation, also.

                I just don't want it to get that far. I literally have not said an unkind word to the guy. In fact, I go out of my way to be courteous to him. The whole thing sort of bums me out.

                    As IM just pointed out, it's either live with the harassment or take a stand.

                      Update: Asshole is annoying other people with his rando hatred. They are now actively telling him to shut up as soon as he says my name. I roll my eyes and groan when they rant about him ranting about me to me.

                      That last sentence made sense, I swear.

                          Exactly. Let him shoot himself in the foot while you stand around appearing innocent and un-involved.
