Didn't Your Mother Teach You?

I think I have truly stumbled on someone who has the biggest lack of manners and class ever.  The problem is I work with this person.  I feel like a rabbit being tossed around by a lion. I have had my conversations with others bluntly interrupted mid-sentence, the phone snatched out of my hand and have several times been insulted.  This person even opens and rifles through the drawers to my desk while I'm sitting there and reaches right across my face to help herself to the use of my pens, stapler, etc without asking or even excusing herself for nearly taking my nose off in the process.  Didn't her mother teach her the word "please" or "excuse me"? Honestly!

 She never asks me to do something, she simply commands me to do it. "Open the email I sent you and print it out."    No please, no thank you, no courtesy whatsoever.  Why haven't I said anything about her ways?  I think I'm so shocked by her immature, pompous behavior that I sit there stunned and with my mouth hanging open.  It's like she was raised with wolves, except I believe they have more respect for each other.   I just cannot believe anyone has such a huge lack of manners nor anyone who has such a condescending attitude.  Didn't her mother teach her any manners?  Does one simply put up with it and chalk it up to ignorance?  or express dislike at being treated like a troll who lives under a bridge?  Does a person like this know they're being rude?  Is there any hope at all?  How would you handle this?

Crafting has always been a passion for me. I have yet to stick with any particular medium, as I love to switch it out and try new things. This blog is sort of a testament to that fact. Hope you enjoy...
