I was in a job once, where my boss called me: incompetent, useless and big disappointment. Needless to say I left after a couple of weeks.

Now, I laugh about it, but then........

And karma rules, she was fired a few months later.
Your invocation of karma in relation to your old boss being fired shortly after being nasty to you implies punishment for this behaviour. Yay! Just desserts!
However, you yourself (initially in this episode) endured punishment while being treated unfairly by the nasty boss. Doesn’t this raise the question why you were on the naughty step just then? Don’t remember anything bad you did? Must have been in an earlier life
Ah, karma – and the suffering never ends. At least for most of us.

And yet I suspect people would take offense to their boss calling them a drama queen, baby, or <insert name>.
I’d piss myself laughing. Such an encounter would be so out of character for either of us. I am lucky, she’s great and we get along well.

I know this is a bit late but it's important to get things right
It's very poor style to not provide the source when quoting. Better not quote at all.

For Standard German, the Duden is the go-to place. The meanings Duden gives for Schnepfe are:
1) the bird
2) woman or girl, slang; derogatory, often used as an insult
3) prostitute

Synonyms: Callgirl(callgirl), Dirne (prostitute), Hure (whore), Nutte

When searching on Duden's website for "blöde Schnepfe" I get one more hit, the German "Nutte". That's a prostitute or slut.

Prima Donna in Italian is definitively not a compliment...the google English translation is pretty accurate:
"a very temperamental person with an inflated view of their own talent or importance."

Btw, Italians use it for men as well.
Akin to "Diva". Reminds me of that famous commercial, a bit old but I never get bored of it. In my experience there're a lot of males who behave just like that.
