ugh. oh well. she's gone now. and as my boss says "she's someone else's problem now" but it does feel good to get it off my chest
If it's any consolation, she's not only someone else's problem, she's her own problem.
Imagine the glowing recommendations she's never going to get.
Imagine the jobs she won't get hired for because she has a reputation for being not just crazy, but incompetent too.
Imagine the first time she gets fired.
Imagine the second time she gets fired.
Imagine as many additional hiring-firing cycles as you like.
Imagine her in 10 years, unemployed--or grossly underemployed--despite her PhD, because she can't get along with people or do the work expected of her. And she'll still be whining that she deserves better because she has a PhD.
And best of all? You don't have to live in her head. It's an ugly place to be, but she's stuck there, 24/7/365.25.
