Hide Or They’ll Have Your Hide

| England, UK | Working | February 12, 2014

(My new coworker stands over me and my computer. I quickly hide all of my programs.)

Coworker: “Hey! What are you hiding? I want to see what you are doing.”

Me: “Not going to happen.”

Coworker: “Why not? I should be able to see. Let me see.”

Me: “No. I manage five people; I regularly deal with confidential and private information. You cannot, and will not, look over my work.”

Coworker: “Don’t be silly. I need to learn what you are doing.”

(I didn’t budge until she left, complaining under her breath. My boss later told me she complained and that he sided with me – which was lucky as I was checking out Not Always Right!)
