Now informed I'll be coming into work only on Tuesdays and Thursdays because of personal problem people here are having with me. On the one hand it's a relief because I am in pain when I drive but on the other hand I'm going to be home alone 5 days a week and with not sleeping either I wonder how I'll cope.

Had a 6-month meeting with the man from the redeployment pool yesterday, my line manager was there too; if I don't find a permanent civil service job by 31 March 2018, I'm out.
Sorry to hear this has all come up again, Liz - but I remain very sceptical about your line manager. By civil service logic, if a situation is OK two days a week, it should be OK all the time, so cutting your days down to two makes no sense. Have you managed to get any independent advice, e g from the Citizens Advice Bureau or For You By You (what used to be called the Civil Service Benevolent Scheme)?

(((Liz))) - you definitely need to get some independent advice as it sounds like bullying. If people do genuinely have a problem with you, management should be working with them and you to try to resolve the issue and move forward, not restrict you to 2 days a week!

The Works are doing 5 children's books for £5 so with Christmas in mind, I thought it was worth investigating. They had some of the Jill Murphy Large family books but every single one was either covered in a sticky mess or had a sticky label mark on it. They all went back on the shelf. I really don't like it when shops stick labels on the front covers but I certainly don't want to buy books that are marked or covered in bits of sticky label etc.

Liz, get nasty back.

Ask for everything in writing, and I mean everything, including the records of complaints made against or about you.

Also, write a letter of complaint about your line manager, stating that you have endured her bullying, but will no longer do so.

AND GO THE THE CAB FOR HELP. ASAP!

Catherine, sticky labels can be removed using Wet Wipes or baby wipes

Liz - as an ex-CAB manager of over twenty years experience, I cannot echo more strongly what the others have said. I know that it is now much harder to get to a CAB, and that they have in some areas restricted the help they can give people, but you urgently need to see someone to discuss the whole situation.

I assume that even if they are cutting your days in the office they are not cutting your salary? Because if they are, then you need to see someone even more urgently.

Has this sort of problem bedevilled your whole life in the civil service or has it only surfaced with this line manager? Because, like Noreen, I have grave doubts about her.

Catherine - apart from wet wipes there is the wonderful sticky stuff remover available from Lakeland. It sometimes surfaces in places like Aldi and Lidl as well, on a special offer. And oh look, there it is on ebay as well. A little goes a very long way. I wouldn't be without it.

Thank you for your support, everyone. Things have only kicked off with this line manager.

It's frightening how much difference one difficult person (Miss Bubb?! Matron Webb?!) can make in a workplace. Echoing what everyone else has said about seeking independent advice. Or are you able to ask to see someone higher up the chain of command?

Liz, I know it can be difficult to get to get some assistance for myriad reasons when you're in the thick of it, but I'm adding my voice to the others. You really should get advice. Good luck!
