I have a problem at work that has spilled over to home. I confronted a co-worker about using agency postage and stationery to send out personal mail. She went to her supervisor and other's in power and reported me for being ugly to her. She had put the agency envelope in my out-going mail basket for me to run through the agency postage meter. I took it out of the basket, tossed it on her desk and told her that I knew it was personal and that she would have to stamp it herself. She says that I threw the letter at her ( I did not I have a witness) she also says that I hollered at her (I did not, I have a witness). I have been reprimanded for being ugly to this person who was stealing. My husband does not agree with me that I was treated unfaily and this hurts most of all. Am I wrong to expect his loyalty and support?

Nope. Maybe he has the same character that says - that's okay...that she did this and you should have just looked the other way.

I'm afraid you're right. I work for the government, so she was stealing from everyone.

You still listen to your husband? 🙂
You were right, you know you were, and most often our spouses are just the worst support when you need it best, where is your girlfriends, they will get it. Or we have a really good tribe here. Leave hubby alone, know you did right.

Sometimes husbands have issues with their wifes being seen as "confrontational" at work. Not sure why, but for some reason some husbands just expect us to be sweetness and light and live and let live or some other BS like that.

He's not being supportive, whatever. Like Molly says, girlfriends would understand. Men don't often understand the dynamics of catfights at work. Sounds awful to say, but woman-woman conflicts in the workplace can be very underhanded indeed, with undertones and overtones that men just don't have the sensors to pick up.

I bet you didn't report the abuse of the stamp machine did you?

Next time just report that.

It's not fair...life seldom is...I wooundn't talk to her again no matter what.

My husband is not supportive either. I had a bill collector call last week and harrassed me. He kept telling me that they are going to sue and that they have to have the money NOW. I expained that I recenlty lost my PT job and I was sorry but we would make installments ASAP. He got ruder and kept cutting me off, so I started to raise my voice so I could finish what I was saying. He started yelling back and I realized I was losing and was not gettting through to him, so I told him to have a nice afternoon and hung up on him. I told my husband about it later and he didn't say anything. He saw that I was upset and had been crying too.

Well, the man called him at work later and he stopped by to call him from home so no one would hear. He was just as nice as day with the man and asked him if he talked to me that way. The man denied it and my husband told him he would get his money soon. The bill collector NEVER ONCE mentioned a lawsuit with him. And my husband said NOTHING about the man calling me a liar! Not a damned thing! He just let it go. How is that for support?
