    So yeah, i've been working at a residential care home for 4 months now. It was a rocky start for me as I came into the company with chronic deppression and I struggled for the first few months. but recently things have improved since I started taking medication. it has stabilised me and enabled me to move forward.

    anyway. the work christmas dinner came up and I thought id go along to show my support for the team. I was the first to arrive closely followed by my manager. It was just me and her outside the restaurant. I approached her to say hello and she completely blanked me. not even a nod.

    when we got to the bar I continued to try and make conversation but was met with more silence. when the other staff arrived she was chatting to them and being quite friendly with them.

    One can only assume by this treatment that she hates my guts. ok fair enough. I dont like some of my colleagues but Im expected to never let this become apparent. its unprofessional. so why does she think its ok to behave like a child and ignore me?

    what could be going on here? when she see's me at work she communicates normally

    It's March, when did you have your Christmas work dinner?

    I'd say just let her be, if she wants to ignore you at social events then let her be miserable - you aren't going to make friends with everyone you work with. As long as her attitude towards you doesn't affect your work, then just continue as normal and talk to the colleagues you like.

    well it might be that she doesn't know you and is shy? or she may just not like you, to be honest my experience of care homes was that it was a toxic environment, the managers and staff acted like a bunch of children and many of them were simply not nice people

    just focus on your job and the aspects you enjoy and let her be a miserable, nasty, child if she wants to be
