In brief: Lots and lots

Bullying is in no way restricted to childhood and adolescence.
We may call it different things--harrassment, intimidation, nagging--but the power relationships is the same: someone bigger or stronger asserts control over another person. Spousal abuse would be an excellent example. The main difference, hopefully, is that adults have greater coping skills to deal with such behaviors.

In brief: Heart surgeons

Once you work with heart surgeons you understand the true meaning of bullying.
This should become a movie.
