can you help me formulate an answer to a colleague who is not my boss but feels entitled to tell me how I have to work?
  • has this worked for you? ignoring and avoiding a coworker. I mean I could see myself doing it if I don't care about the job or have something else lined up, but if I want or need the job, I'm having serious doubts if it would work every day.

    Are you still employed where yo do/did this?

  • can you help me formulate an answer to a colleague who is not my boss but feels entitled to tell me how I have to work?
  • It’s a little wild that this is what you came up with trying to be neutral and diplomatic.

    that's why this post is titled 'can you help me...?'

    Genuinely makes me question if you’re understanding this person and your role correctly.

    I only know she's not my boss and my role is the same as her.

    I don't understand why you believe you know my role better than me.

    I wouldn't do this over email. To be effective, the message has to be said next time she feels entitled to 'correct' me.

    but, just my 2 cents

  • to those of you of either sex who wear thongs or strings, doesn't the back side get in direct contact with your anus?

    > the colleague in question feels that only her way of doing things is the right one and expects me to adapt to her way of thinking and her logic. This is tiring and burdensome because I have to force me to stop doing things automatically and efficiently, but think how she wants it done and do it her way. I work worse when this happens. > > There are several ways to reach the same goal and I always adapt according to the situation at hand. I do what feels logic at the time and work my way. > > I already told the charge nurse charge about it but I don't know if she had a conversation with this coworker and what was said. > > The message has to be neutral and polite. What do you think of this? > > > I feel you believe you are my boss. You are not. Stop telling me how to work. It's tiring. You have your way of doing things, I've got mine, both equally good. Should you have a problem with this, contact the charge or manager. I'm gonna go work now.

    the colleague in question feels that only her way of doing things is the right one and expects me to adapt to her way of thinking and her logic. This is tiring and burdensome because I have to force me to stop doing things automatically and efficiently, but think how she wants it done and do it her way. I work worse when this happens.

    There are several ways to reach the same goal and I always adapt according to the situation at hand. I do what feels logic at the time and work my way.

    I already told the charge nurse charge about it but I don't know if she had a conversation with this coworker and what was said.

    The message has to be neutral and polite. What do you think of this?

    > I feel you believe you are my boss. You are not. Stop telling me how to work. It's tiring. You have your way of doing things, I've got mine, both equally good. Should you have a problem with this, contact the charge or manager. I'm gonna go work now.

    Nurses with an overbearing manager, how do you pass time at work without getting caught?

    > Overbearing manager means somebody for whom relaxing after doing your job or reading on downtime means lazying around.

    Overbearing manager means somebody for whom relaxing after doing your job or reading on downtime means lazying around.
