    So, last night my boss saw me texting and she took my phone. Then she starting reading my texts About 30 minutes after I realized she read my texts, I asked her for my phone battery, and she said no. When she took my phone, I had turned it off, but when I got it back I discovered she opened up text messages that I got and that I didn't read yet. And I even asked her to not read my texts.
    there were some pretty embarrassing messages on there from some girls so I don't know if she read them. I feel pretty embarrassed.
    also my boss went around telling other employees what my texts were saying

    is she allowed to do this? what do i do

    Where do your work? Regardless, I dont think she should be reading your messages, she should have just told you to put it away, nosy cow!

    No, report it to someone higher than her in the company. Jack all will happen (it never does and shes a woman) but its the principal

    That there would be bullying in the workplace.

    Is there someone higher up than your boss that you can take it up with? Most places have some sort of system in place for dealing with bullying.

    Wow that's outrageous! Granted you shouldn't have been texting - but that is an invasion of your privacy!! Complain - is there someone higher up than her?... I would not let this go - at the very least go for a formal apology.

    Report to her supervisor :yep: and insist that something is done about this and you want to be informed of the disciplinary action taken, as well as a formal apology from her.

    A similar situation happened with my friend who works at currys, after 3 days the manager had to apologise to him and he was under that corporate monitoring thing for 6 months!

    Do this!
