Yes I have. Within the workplace.I was 18 when this happened so I was considered an adult. I was fresh out of high school and working my first official job.I was a dietary aide in a nursing home kitchen and my coworkers were not friendly people. These people ranged from high school seniors to grumpy old men who were the chefs. It was not a good mix.I tended to stay away from the old guys cause they were like a ticking time bomb waiting to go off. However I was the only new hire at the time and I had to settle into a workplace with people who already knew eachother very well.You would think that they would be welcoming but they were the exact opposite. I was a quiet guy who liked to just do his work and go home. I was put on the same work station everynight which was the pots and pans washer. These high school kids would gossip about me, claiming I'm weird or mute. Then the old guys would yell at me at the top of their lungs if I screwed up an order or anything like that.Now below I will list a few examples of the workplace bullying I experienced.This one guy Joe who was trying to be seen as the big shot or jokester of the workplace would torment me day in and day out. He would put me down while also giving me false reassurance as to not go to a manager about his behavior. He one day held his phone up to my ear and played this really awful opera musical really loudly. All my other coworkers were just crowded us around laughing. I told him to stop repeatedly as I was just minding my own business and had to fill out a form. He never listened, I had enough. I turn around and knocked his phone out of his hand. All of a sudden the entire room fills with hostility to me. He threatens that he was gonna fight me. That did not bother me. What did was the fact that not one person took my side when he was tormenting me and harrassing me. When I asked repeatedly to stop. Instead I was met with insults and threats. Even some of them saying that I had a mental disorder. There was no fight or any altercation that happened but they kept this incident over me for a good month before it died down.I used to get called harsh words by the assistant chef which everyone thought was funny, and again nobody stood up for me. I just took it. But I believe this man had a bipolar disorder because he would praise me after 5 minutes. However he would often times threaten me while holding a knife in his hand. It was only until I threatened to report him that he stopped the violent threats but the words and harsh names I still got called.One particular evening I was getting verbally abused by the head chef. I didn't know if I was singled out by him or if he was having a bad day, but it was no excuse for what he did next. All throughout the night i was called the most vile nasty names that I dare not repeat. So much so that even the high school kids were a little unsettled by it. This only escalated throughout the night as the head chef lost his temper with me over the multiple food orders he had to make. I was then screamed at with his face less than 8 inches away from mine right against my ear. I did not know what to do, I still had a job to finish. Management wasn't there. It was thanks to actually one of the high school kids and one of the nurses that passed by that he was reported. However, no disciplinary action was taken against him. And he never apologized to me for what he put me through that night.A newly hired nurse who had a short temper lost it because of a messed up food order and approached me in front of all my work colleagues. There she was swearing and name calling like an unprofessional child. What bothered me about this was nobody around me wanted to step in and help me or tell her to back off. Not the chefs on duty or anyone. I had to stand there and take all her anger for about 2 minutes until she finally went away. When I went to my boss about it the next day, he told me to just let it go and not mention it again.Speaking of my boss, he didn't want to do anything for me. If I had any problem he would say that I should just let it go and he will speak to whoever was bothering me at the time. He never did. In fact when things were happening, he never bat a single eye to me. He then threatened that there was a bunch of write ups I had and that a few more can cause immediate termination, which I never saw. He tended to play favorites (the head chef was his best friend) and would unprofessionally harrass me over the phone if I refused to cover someone's shift. He never let me have a day off unless I called the day before to remind him that I requested it and he never acknowledged schedule changes that I needed for school until I had to remind him or he would claim I am skipping work. As someone who I was supposed to look to for leadership he never wanted to be professional and take control of his workplace, and I can't tell you the look and unsentimental words he gave to me when I gave my 2 weeks notice.Bullying can happen anywhere. Not just in school. Workplaces can be the next stop that bullying can take place. You would think that being older would help make people wiser but I digress. No matter where you go it can happen, you just need to know what to look out for. As I said before bullying or harrassing someone is never ok and never will be.
