Discuss one or more possible conversations with a workplace, bully, aimed at managing the situation productively and identify the strategies used.

I used to work at a retail store. My other coworker was a bullying person. He would always want me to do most of the work and would go out and smoke. Whenever I would complain, he would just become angry at me and tell me that I was the one not working hard and that he is doing his part of the work. This went on for like a month. I tried talking to him, asking if he had any personal problem that was causing this kind of behavior. I tried everything but his behavior did not change. I even complained to the store manager but he said just avoid him. The final solution that I came up with was to simply leave the job. I know this is not the best solution but I was unable to confront that situation anymore.
