Adult Bullying is not Acceptable Behavior

Real Estate Agent with Donna Homes, powered by JPAR - 0480809

Bullying is not just for kids. Apparently, it's still a thing Adults like to do. I received an annoymous letter in the mail today from someone who was too scared to sign their name or put a return address. It was signed "Your Neighbors". This Bully decided they were too little of a person to say they wrote it all on their own, and that it had to come from others also, which I doubt. 

This Bully not only belittled me as a parent, but talked very badly about my youngest, 6 years old. Do adults not have better things to do than to make themselves feel better by making others feel bad?

I'm not going to get into the details of the letter. If this neighbor actually knows me, they follow me and will read this. Hopefully, it'll open their eyes as to what a tiny tiny person they are to not be able to say something adult to adult.

I don't care who you are, bullying someone is not the answer. Saying rude, mean, and hurtful things to someone or about someone, is not the way to make an impact.  Lastly, you have no idea what's going on behind any scenes of what you see. If I gave you back an earful of everything you mentioned in this letter, you would be running with your tail between your legs.

And people wonder where the kids get it from. Learned behavior?

Exactly! I found it odd that she didn't mention my oldest and how well behaved she is, because then she would have to acknowledge how I really am as a parent.

I'm keeping it so I can compare handwriting if I'm ever at someone's house and see something written out on a counter.

Bullying comes in many forms. Over the weekend, a competitor of mine reversed all of my open house directional signs leading away from my listed property. Threw away all of my foil pinwheels down the sewer grate, but thankfully did not steal my open house flags which are pretty pricey. Had they done that, it would have been all out war.

Donna I'm sorry you have to deal with this sad situation. I'm just shaking my head these days when I hear far too many of this type of story going on.  Best of luck in moving forward - which I'm sure you will.

There are a lot of bullies that become CEOs and try to manipulate people but you end up seeing through a boss, versus a leader. You know what I’m saying?
