Dear Joe,

We work together. That is our relationship. You will not speak to me like you did today ever again. That will not be tolerated, and if you ever speak to me like that again there will be actions taken via the appropriate work channels. I am hoping that my desk will be moved, or yours will be moved. I think you need to sit among men. I am not a child, most definitely not one of your children, and will not be spoken to as though I am. I am a human being, equal to you, if not better than, and you will not treat me as though I were not. I have had my share of abuse, have dealt with enough abusive people, and have to everyday just through our job, that I will not take it from a co-worker who has no greater authority than I and no reason to treat me badly.

I look forward to your cooperation in this matter.

Thank you,

Heidi
