Need to vent!

Wednesday, October 27, 2010

Ok, I need to post this . . . my apologies to my Chester Count friends for repeating it. I need to get it off my chest!!!

I'm sooo stressed. Actually, I'm annoyed - but I was angry!

I was 15 minutes late to work today due to the weather and traffic. Well, the boss called my cell phone when I was 5 minutes from work. I didn't answer b/c I was that close to work and I don't like to talk on the phone when I'm driving. My boss called back at the office a minute or so after I got there (he wasn't there, obviously,) and was wondering why no one was there at 8:30 to answer the phones and I why I didn't answer my cell. Well, I guess he didn't like my calm answer of getting stuck in traffic and I didn't answer the cell b/c I don't like to use it when driving and keep it turned off, plus of a strict cell phone budget. He started harping on unlimited cell phone plans and why don't I use my cell phone. When I told him I wasn't discussing my cell phone plan or my financials with him and asked him "what's up?" (as in "how can I help you?"), he wanted to know why I had an attitude. I explained that I didn't have an attitude with him. I was running late due to the traffic/weather, wasn't sure if I had my phone on me, and was not going to discuss my finances/cell phone plans with him, thanks for the advice. Surely, he needed help with something urgently since he called the office and my cell. He just mentioned that someone should be there at 8:30. urggg. I am always on time. WTH?????

I don't think he's going to be in today, which is a good thing. But, I am always prompt, on time and pleasant. Just because I disagree with you, doesn't mean I have an attitude.

so, thanks for letting me vent. I needed to get this off my chest, so I don't go and eat my stress away.

    Thanks Linda. No, my old boss was like that all the time. Most of the times, I let it rub off, that day, it just irked me enough to vent. That was last year, and my boss (who was with a consulting firm my company hired) is now on another project. Thanks for the support.

    HUGS! I will share something that happened to me. I was in the laundry mat. A lady was giving me a very hard time over nothing. Later I sit done by her and asked her kindly how she was doing. She had not been a widow long; they had been married 61 years and she was fixing to go into hospital for a major surgery. She was getting some last things done, before going into hospital. She missed her Hubby and was unsure of her near future. We talked and prayed together. She asked me to forgive her. I did. Sometimes we are not the problem but the person does not even know why they are upset and well they take it out on someone who is well handy. Maybe he was having one of those hard days. That is no excuse for his actions but maybe a help for you! HUGS! I care! Love and prayers Jenny

    I agree with the others. If it's a personal cell, he is actually PRIVILEGED to have the number. I can't believe he fussed at you about YOUR cell phone plan.

And vent away. I do! No good to keep it all bottled up. emoticon

    Vent away! I agree, your finaces/cell phone plan is none of his business. If he wants you at his beck and call, tell him to flip the bill for a work cell phone and handsfree device! See how he goes for that one.
p.s. I don't answer my cell when driving, its against the law in NY. It also irritates my husband and kids... Oh well!
