She said I hadn’t forgotten to do the task from the week before and that it was a deeper issue.
I was literally cornered in her living room, and I could see from my heart rate monitor that I was at 115 bpm, frantically trying not to hyperventilate.
Yesterday, my father started giving me job advice: morning check-ins and updates with Jill, etc.
— things I do every day and have been doing for the past 10 months.
My dad started dating this woman (Jill) about two years ago, after he and my stepmom amicably divorced.
Once when I said the way she was talking to me was making me flustered, she yelled that this is how she manages people, that I perceive things the wrong way, and that it’s a problem with me.• She is always coming up with elaborate rumors about our out-of-state staff.
When I said I had done the task, she said she shouldn’t have had to remind me. Everything I said was met with a different criticism, I wasn’t sure what to do, it was late, and this wasn’t productive, so I didn’t respond to her last text (which hadn’t asked anything of me).
Soon after, my dad called to say that Jill had yelled at him for half an hour about distracting me from my work.
She makes me come to her house to print things because she doesn’t want to open them on her computer.
I write columns under her name, and then we go through upwards of six drafts as she makes minuscule tweaks, forgets she made those tweaks, and changes them back to the original, all while criticizing me for not making any sense.• She volunteered to watch her infant granddaughter twice a week, but she started leaving the baby with me while she goes to her law office.
