So then...

About Me

Welcome to my blog. My pen name is Eva James. I'm an aspiring writer paying the bills working as a legal secretary. Relentlessly bullied by my former boss, I looked for another job but the recession hit. Feeling trapped, I recorded everything in this blog, which serves as a revealing insight into workplace bullying. WEEK 1 starts the story and, as the weeks progress, you'll note what starts as banter soon spirals out of control. Sadly, it's all true. Whilst along the way I've found alternative employment, my passion for blogging about workplace bullying remains. Trevor Griffiths, legendary theatre, TV and film writer said at the outset, "I like the writing a lot: smart, cool, placed. If you were prepared/able to take your prick of a boss on, you'd marmelise him."

WEEK 100 It’s a Man’s World (But it wouldn’t be nothin’...)


Can you believe it?

In the last week or so, I’ve found myself dwelling less on bullying and more generally on how vulnerable working women can be, especially when we’re living on our own. There are so many stereotypes heaped on us; awful assumptions made by colleagues and society at large. It’s still a man’s world. HOWARD’S not the only guy to find the joys and miseries of working women one big joke. He simply took it to the next level – finding past examples of the rape and murder of women quite hilarious.

It’s a sobering thought.

Still, how can I be sad when this is my 100th blog? It’s such an achievement. And how I wish I could tell HOWARD that to celebrate my milestone – I’ve donated some of his settlement money to the Suzy Lamplugh Trust.

See you soon

Congratulations on your centenial post. Their are PPL that don't know what to do or can't even define bullying. I beleive a world wide prime-time reality show on this would show high ratings and condition PPL on what bullying is and how to act. Some of these mad men don't understand and don't want to understand there terror act. We need to move on and perhaps expose these deprieved/demented culprits. x
