On today’s show, we get a little more serious for a moment.

Today, we talk about bullying.

Not teasing, but all out bullying.

We are aware that this subject could be hard for some to listen to, so please listen at your own digression, but this was a subject that I’ve been wanting to write and talk about for some time.

If you are, or have been a victim of bullying, even as an adult in the work place (yes, it does happen, and yes, I have been a victim of that), please know that you are not alone, and you have people and resources that can help you.

If you need immediate help, please speak to someone… Anyone who will listen. If you want, I, the Uncommon Geek can be an ear. Feel free to email me at bossmonkey@uncommongeek.com Also, the number for the National Crisis hot line is 1-800-273-8255 and are available 24/7/365. I have it in my phone, just in case.
