Over what? A craft group would you believe. A bluddy craft group for the village.

Seems so silly but I'm effing well over doing all the flamin' work and then be treated like a dogsbody whilst someone grandstands calling themself group 'organiser and co-ordinator' .

As MrBEVS always says there is no I in team.

G'won then. Have a giggle over me losing the plot over something so small.
Said co-ordinator extraordinaire attempted to stop me driving off away from the group meet this morning. Oopsie.

I hear you my friend. Let it all out.

Bunch of tossers

I for one won't have a giggle over you losing the plot. I know exactly what you mean about otyers taking credit when it's not their work. Craft club or cancer cure - makes no difference. You did the job so you deserve the credit.

'Cause she's been caught out in her lies and manipulations.. so she has to act like the injured party so she doesn't look bad with the rest of the group. It's all about how she wishes to be perceived.. and shows an insecure mindset.

Grrrrrrrrrr

Had a similar thing with the amateur theatre company (charity)I was involved in (OH is still semi-involved), so I get your anger. There's always those few people who need to grandstand and take all the credit for everything. They ruin it for the likes of us who do it for fun, to benefit others, whatever reason. We don't do it to take credit but it's soul-destroying when the attention seekers take it from others/us.

The pettiness and cliqueyness (sp? ) did for me and I walked away after the AGM last year.

These people aren't worth giving any energy to. Typical of this type to play 'the victim', this person deserves a very hard slap.

Because everything is all about them, and all drama has to have them at the centre.

Nothing you can do about people like that apart from hold your head high, keep your dignity and otherwise they can FO.

Bevs.. I feel your pain... It must be in the stars! YD came back from work yesterday in the same state for the same reason... The Male A****e in her office decided to 'grandstand' in front of some IT experts come in to do updates to the system. He declared that the whole previous system was crap and inefficient.As YD is office manager.. that more or less mean't her.. Being the lady she is.. she didn't retaliate by pointing out his inefficiency and numerous mistakes.not to mention missed appointments
I am no lady and I would have wiped the floor with the bullying bustard.. She has recently parted with her long term BF so felt very vulnerable It was a low blow whilst she was down-.I am guessing this lazy s**t has designs on taking her place.

No laughing matter..These actions are always calculated ,like in the jungle these pushy people decide beforehand if someone is as devious as they and will fight back.. Just kick her Bevs...

No-one is giggling. Groups can be a right pain in the arse, starts off with a common interest and everyone is happy to be part of it but then gradually someone decides that they are the most important person in the group. Slowly they push themselves forward as the kingpin and use others in the group to do the bits and bobs that are "beneath" them in order to reinforce their status. Really hate this sort of person.

Usually the one person is working hard to make sure that things run smoothly, hiding in the shadows whilst someone else is taking the praise etc but suddenly a light goes on in your head with words in neon saying "enough", "stop" and other bad language things. That is when you walk away to show how you feel.

Well done you.

Of course, they do not have a clue what you are on about, they do not understand how you feel and have no idea at all why you are thinking in the way that you are. They are so far up their own bottoms that they cannot and will not see the world from someone elses point of view. Hence, they are right therefore you must be wrong.

Don't..Just DON'T give her another second of your time Bevs. These people drive me mad too. Hard to believe ,(but like bus's ) Two came along for me this christmas.
One..after several attempts to put me in my place before ,decided, after I had made christmas plans that included her and her OH (why? I must be mad) at the very last moment that MY plans didn't suit her, and proceeded to completely change them.Which would have meant my cancelling a reservation at a favourite restaurant.amongst other things. I responded by telling her to do what she wanted .We were doing what we had planned. End of friendship

The second woman decided to take umbrage at an email I had sent her about a club we belonged to. I asked her to explain why she was angry at what had seemed a normal inquiry by me. (I had apologised not knowing why i had too) She accepted the apology but refused to explain.End of friendship

Life is too short to deal with these 'Prima Donna's' and their control issue's .You sound like a good person.One of life's 'doers' She is not.. end of.
