Anne and Emily enjoyed mobbing any new employee that they perceived as a threat, until either the target broke down and
attempted to fight back - and was fired - or the target quit.
The two celebrated each victory by laughingly claiming that
their victim had been "voted off the island."
Driving around with your friends and/or bitches, bumping
music, having a good time, and hopefully picking up some
Chase and I went mobbing last night and picked up some hoes.
Also known as 'workplace bullying'. Mobbing is when a group
of jealous individuals who can't measure up to your skill level
decide to bully you. It's in reference to a behavior exhibited in
animals. Usually the group in question will start stealing your
work and trying to pass it off as their own yet never measuring
up to your quality. The bosses and co-workers tend to favor you
and these workers resent that. They then use both subtle and
obvious techniques to try to force you to leave/quit or to make
your life intolerable while in the environment. They will critisize
your work which the bosses praise yet they will find fault in it all
the while attempting to steal parts of it. They will accuse you of
things you never did to try to make you look bad to get power
and control over you and other workers, They will sit in their little
group and pat eachother on the back for eachother's inferior work
all the while ignoring yours. They will tell other people to stay away from you and that youre bad news so no one will support you or
your work.. They are relentless. The best thing you can do is completely ignore them or leave the company.
They were so envious I was always chosen they had to start
mobbing me to gain control and not feel so inferior and
powerless because they couldnt measure up.
Bullying (mobbing) is an extreme form of social stressors at work.
Unlike normal social stressors, workplace bullying (mobbing) is a
long lasting (at least 6 months), escalated conflict with frequent harassing actions (at least every week), systematically aimed
at a target person and carried out by colleagues, supervisors or subordinates
Mobbing is a term used to describe group bullying in which one or
more employees covertly attack another. Mobbing and bullying
consist of psychological and emotional terrorism in which the target
or victim is driven into a helpless position. One person—the victim--becomes the focus of scapegoating, rumor, and innuendo. The victim
is badgered, intimidated, and humiliated. This occurs through persistent, targeted, hostile behavior (verbal and nonverbal)
designed to undermine the integrity of the victim. Deprecating
rumors are created. The goal is to ostracize, isolate, and eliminate
the victim. Offenders participate in character assassination,
humiliation, and disruption.

went into a deep depression.
