Why Do People Need to Put Others Down? 

So here’s the question….. We arrive to work most nights and there are a few people who have been working here for a very long time. Then you have the ones who are new, and then the ones in between. I would like to call them oldies, mids and babies. Well, there are two nurses in particular, one is a baby and the other is an oldie. The baby is a super sweet girl and has been a nurse for a few years but new to our hospital. The oldie is a great woman and mentor and has been a traveling nurse for 25+ years. Love these two ladies, but every single shift the baby gets picked on and put down by the mid nurses and it makes me sick!! The oldie gets shoved in triage every shift just because she’s a little older and slower and the other nurses don’t want her on the floor. 

So my thing is why?? Why do these people feel the need to treat others this way? Every time we try to tell them both “let us say something”, or “stick up for yourself”, they both just say nooo please don’t say anything, it’s fine, I’ll do it, etc etc. But to be honest it really just pisses us off!! We are in a work environment where we are here to help people, not put them down, even if they are co-workers! Everyone should be treated with respect no matter how long you’ve been a nurse, tech, unit clerk or whatever your job is. We’ve all worked hard to get where we are!!  It’s gotten to the point where there’s too many cooks in the kitchen and too many people wanna play boss. 

There are even some people, let’s just call them oldies/vets of the hospital who think they are bosses, they are so vain and try to make themselves look like something they aren’t. And these particular ones are flat out LIARS!! 

We love our job!! We love what we do, we are doing what I know we were meant to do, but I’m still trying so hard to understand why people have to put others down. There should be a “Code of Ethics for Dummies” book for these people who do this!! 

Anyone else out there have similar situations like this? Where you feel like your hands are tied and you can’t help people who are treated like this?? 

Thanks for listening 🙂

  1. Insecurity, Jealousy, but generally just nasty people. There are so many reasons why this happens, but non are justifiable. Sometimes it happens without even thinking. We all need to think before we speak and judge our actions before we carry them out. Thank you for this post.

    1. Your so right!! There are so many reasons. But I just can’t for the life of me figure out why with these two amazing women, how sweet and caring and compassionate they are, always putting others before themselves, just how can you belittle that? It angers me and makes me feel helpless for them. In no way am I saying that they are weak people, I guess more so saying the people doing this are the weak minded!! Grrrrr
