Today has turned into a very bad day. I have eaten enough for the day and am working hard at not letting the stress turn into eating more and more. My job involves me doing a lot of things because my boss asks them of me. I get involved with things that don't have much to do with my actual job as an accountant, but I do things to help the business run smoothly. Part of my job is every morning I stop in at both locations, pick up paperwork, take the bank deposits, and then go back to my office and work. Some day I do not get to the second location until later in the morning because I do some work first. And, some days I do hang out at the shop my office is not at because I have known a lot of those guys for a long time. I also make sure I am doing anything that they need done that falls in my realm of stuff. My boss many times has asked me to do this. I found out today that a few weeks ago he made a comment to one of the guys to ask him to get me to not hang around so long everyday, to get me out of there sooner. Sigh.
There are days that I feel my boss wishes he would've never hired me. There are days that he asks so much of me, its ridiculous. And, the other people there just plain don't like me some days. It is a hard situation to be in. I love my actual job. I like what I do. But, I don't like the office politics and the stupid games that he plays.
In one year (less than) I am going to start looking for a job in another city. I will leave all of this behind and look to the future. I will suck it up and stick it out until then, and I will get the weight off. I am thinking of moving somewhere warm, so I will need to get my weight down to be comfortable.
It is hard to know that I go to work and try every day for a man who doesn't care, and can't make up his mind. It's hard to work with people who are nice when they want something, bitch when they think I am trying to be their boss (which I DO NOT want to be), and completely ignore the nice things I try and do for them. But, I will move on, and it will be great!!
