Real quick, I know this might not be a huge problem, but I was a little disgusted with my supervisor today. We had a meeting and while she was presenting, everyone in the room was talking. So, when I said one thing to my neighbor, she chose me out of all of them to call out. I feel as though she didn't have to put me on the spot. That was embarassing especially when they were all doing the same thing I was. And I admit I was wrong for talking while she was, but I feel that her actions were uncalledfor.

How should I handle this?

you could take a moment to ask her why you were singled out when it appeared you weren't the only one that was talking? explain you know you were in the wrong, but that you want to understand why it was only you that got called out - and if there is any other problems she has with you - nad is everything ok.

beyond that - not much - suck it up and know you WERE in the wrong - and just the one she chose to call on.

maybe your voice is deeper or something and it was the one she heard over all of it? or maybe she was listening to your convo and heard something she didn't like?

either way, you admit you were in the wrong - and it's not fair that you got singled out - but that's just the way it goes sometimes.

i'd tt her and let her know how you feel. Then at least you can speak your mind and tell her, without letting this build up and turning into resentment....heck, maybe she had a good reason, but you will never know unless you tt her.

Id get over it. She probably singled you out because she knows you can take, whereas your fellow workers may not be able to. Was she possibly trying to motivate you. Anger is a great motivator. Good luck.

I'ld let it go too unless she has a tendancy to single you out often when others are guilty of the same behaviour.

Then again if you thought fast at the moment you could have quipped "I'm sure everyone can remain quiet now to hear what you have to say"..then laugh. It sort of asserts the situation and gives everyone equal blame and responsibility.
Office politics are always a pain, but it helps to put the message out, in a humorous way, that people can't take advantage of you.
