Do not judge me


I have no excuse to lash out at times like I did, drunk or not, it’s no excuse.

Be perplexed, shocked, annoyed with me, be angry with me, but do not judge me.

Turn your back, walk away, close your eyes, block me, report me, cuss me out, but don’t judge me.

I’ve come out of an emotional and mental hell that is stuff for a shooting spree.

I just write intensely, survived by speaking out loud and detailed.

Don’t judge me.

I’ve been bullied, abandoned, blamed during the worst time of my life. I still blame myself for things that happened during that time. Stop judging me!

I’ve been on yearlong waiting-lists for therapy. Don’t judge me.

I turned away from the Christian belief. No, don’t judge me.

I’m a mess. Just don’t judge me.

My healing way is complicated. Do not judge me.

I dig deep for my dignity, I left it on the way somewhere and judged myself.

Don’t judge me.

Be annoyed, angry, be tired of me, but do not judge me.

The above slideshow is just a selection, the list goes on in Pret Staff Complaints (needs updating).
And extensive accounts of Pret’s systemic bullying behind the facade, also witnessed by customers: Caught in the Act at Pret.



I worked at Pret A Manger and survived systemic workplace bullying during bereavement that involved HR, the top leadership, HQ and even the now “retired” former CEO Clive Schlee. I declined 4 settlement offers if I am silent about my ordeal. But I rather starve and speak out to help others. For an overview of important blog entries of my experience with Pret, please visit “My Ordeal with Pret A Manger”. The little arrow to the right next to each heading will lead directly to the post.
I tell my story for the first time verbally in below audio player interview on a podcast by
The Adam Paradox, and wrote two articles in the Scottish Left Review: 1. “Late Night Girl’s” Story with Pret and 2. Pushing Back Against Pret.
Thank you for reading/listening.
