Something happened to me at work today, that had me more than a bit rattled.

As some of you might know, I work for a large cleaning firm and we mostly take care of offices, factories and stuff like that. My largest post is at a place called Estée Lauder, a cosmetics firm. Not that that really matters in this, but well...

So I'm finished with my actual work and as usual, I take my buckets up to the first floor, to empty them and clean them out, just as I've started doing this, a guy comes up to me, furious about who knows what, and kicks over my cart and kicks at my buckets, aiming it at me. Luckily some of the men saw it and pulled him away.

After finishing up my buckets, I went to ask some of the guys what was up with him and it turned out that the guy in question had just been fired due to 'extreme behavior'.

So basically, he gets fired and decided that the best way to deal with that is an attack on the cleaning woman and her cleaning tools? Gee, fun guy...

I came downstairs just in time to see him escorted out with a security guard, seems like they didn't waste too much time.

Now I didn't like this guy before. I'd had bad dealings with him previously, he had this attitude of kicking my cart away, or kicking over my buckets or stuff. I usually ignored him, because I know from experience that bullies like that only get worse if you acknowledge them. That and I don't want to be the kind of person who goes ratting on other people unless the situation is really serious. (or hurts someone other than me, I'm silly that way)
Still I can't say that I'm unhappy about seeing the guy in question go...
It might be petty, but I have a bad reaction to people that put up signs saying "Fat Woman Peepshow" while I'm finishing up my work.
