Dear Princess who works FOR me,
I agreed to mediation in order for us to establish a better, more adult working relationship. Had I known I would be blindsided with accusations and blatent lies, I doubt I would have been so agreeable. After you finished your tirade, I was too shell shocked to respond, sitting there looking like a deer in headlights. I decided it was wasted energy to defend myself against these accusations (all untrue) and since you brought "witnesses," who are not involved and witnessed nothing since you lied, I sat there silently. My only statement was that I believed your "perceptions" of situations were uh....slightly skewed and felt that mediation probably would not remedy the problem which is you think you're better than me, your supervisor. Now, as this could be true, it doesn't change the fact that I'm your boss and you need to respect that...which was about my only coherent statement throught the whole process. Remember, I was suffering from shellshock which rendered me almost mute. So.........exactly where did all this get us?
