You didn’t mean to be at odds with your co-worker… but she’s so rude! She shows no respect and seems determined to make your day difficult. No wonder you’re cursing the day she joined the team.
It might be tempting to just sit in the corner and sulk, wishing for this “problem person” to get the message and leave. But you could help yourself, your co-worker, and your team if you took a deep breath and changed your behavior.
