  1. If faced with a work place bully, DOCUMENT. Bullies are often artfully skilled in defending themselves!
    “Are you worried about coming across as rude? A bully prefers politeness in others, considering it a sign of weakness, naivete or vulnerability. But a bully isn’t polite when he intimidates and undermines you, so why do you feel compelled to be polite when you’re defending yourself?” I would have a hard time not being polite, especially if I were going to file a complaint or had any desire to continue working for the company. I do believe that it is possible to respond strongly without being rude.
