Post Question - Off Topic

How do you cope with pissy co-workers.
 
I have this coworker who tends to tell you exactly what is on her mind. She is also bossy and a know-it-all. She is a new-hire (approx 3 months).

When she responds to me it is usually in a very harsh, snappy tone. This morning she was questioning me about voice mail and when I told her how to handle it she stated that it didn't work. I then proceeded to tell her "Yes, it does." She got very angry and raised her voice and said "Well, I'm sorry!"

It's kinda funny that she can talk to me that way but you can't do it to her.

I would first take the high road and ask if everything is OK because you notice she seems upset.
Then if she continues, I would just calmly tell her that I don't appreciate the tone of voice she's using when she speaks to me. Believe it or not, she may not even be aware of her behavior.
Good luck.

She just sent me an email apologizing for her behavior.

I find your post refreshing! I don't find any reasons not to talk about other subjects while we are waiting for our eggs to do something!
