The bitch is back

Today, I overheard a co-worker tell the new guy not to talk to me because I'm a bitch. Apparently, she didn't like it when I told her two weeks ago that she had a drinking problem, which was affecting her work ethic. FML

.... she's upset and defensive because you called her out. Was there a better way to get your point across without appearing to attack her? Also, was confronting her a part of your job? A supervisor (or H.R.) would have been the best messenger.

If I had to work with an alcoholic that affected my projects due to their behaviour, you can damn well be I’d call her bullshit out. Whether a manager or not gets involved, I’m not going to let someone who makes shitty life choices that affects my work prevent me doing my job properly. It’s not a discriminatory remark, so feel free to call a coworker a drunk asshole. That is if they are truly an alcoholic that fucks up other peoples job because of it. And for the record, I’ve already done this before. But thats because being drunk caused a safety issue. Worse, how do you report a high up manager?

The employee probably thought they were suppose to defend themselves and keep themselves from harm in the calmest manner possible.. It seems this isn't the case. Disist.

Just curious as to what kind of reaction were to you expecting? Whether or not she has a drinking problem, a random coworker telling her (presumably at work) is plain rude and out of line

I've had this happen, after mentioning repeatedly that a high up manager was causing safety issues, nothing was done. Then you say something and the blame falls on you. No win situation.
