Frustrated.....


Monday, May 21, 2012

WARNING....This is a Rant!

That pretty much sums me up the last few weeks! Mostly I'm frustrated as hell at work! Though the fact I've put 3 lbs back on hasn't helped matters any!!

I'm just done! Done with my boss....the passive-aggressive cow that she is! So I FINALLY get a WHOLE week off....and on my Out of Office Assistant it says I will NOT be checking emails. So what does she do....starting at 6am this morning she's filled me inbox with 20+ emails! ALL for BS stuff that EITHER she could have brought up LAST week OR that could easily wait til NEXT week!!! Seriously....for a woman who took 3 or 4 vactions during busy season....there is NO reason she has to screw with my first vacation this year!! AND to kick matters up a notch....she's hinting around that I can't take my usual vacation in October...which means....no Africa this year! And that's just NOT gonna happen!! I am SO DONE with this woman!! The one thing I know is that while I AM off.....I'm going to polish up my resume and get that on the street before I come back! I Love what I do and I've gotten to work on some great projects here, but the time has come and I'm OUT!

    Good thing she knows you're NOT checking your e-mails. There they shall set, unopened, until next week, right? If you have your regular October vacation scheduled, there isn't a darned thing that woman can do about it. Your vacations are owed to you.

Now that we've covered that matter, get up and go have fun! You're on VACATION!

    Correct me if I'm getting this wrong, but she KNEW you were going on vacation and when you were going and slammed a pile of trivial e-mails at you in the 24-48 hours before you left? Then she began hinting there could be difficulties with your October, planned, noticed vacation? Ignore the emails and you are probably entitled to your vacation - so go for it.

Sounds as if she has some issues and me thinks you are on the right track when you say you might want to see if there isn't somebody a little less testy you can work for.

In the interim - have a fabulous time in Vegas and don't gamble too much. Enjoy your time and don't forget sun screen!
Ciao,
Debi

    How frustrating! I would be so angry too! I think you are perfectly right in looking for a new job, especially since I can tell this isn't the first time she's irritated you. I wish you luck and I hope you enjoy your time off!

    You, my friend, are on VACATION. Boss Lady can wait till you get back. Period.

I agree about dropping your phone in the canals at the Venetian, taking in a day of spa at Ceasar's and heading to Red Rocks Canyon for a day away. I'd also spend some time by those fabulous fountains at the Bellagio and watch that water dance!! Very soothing to the soul.

Enjoy this time away. You've earned it!

    Indeed do not respond to her emails: pretend that you are completely out of reach, and so should you be when on Hols!!!!!
I am glad that you are looking into possible job change if she is making oyur life difficult! If there is someone higher than her in the company, I would raise your issues with them too (I trust you have told her what you find difficult about her behaviour, for I guess she deserves to know, she needs to if she is ever going to get better, but then, some people do not want to....)
good luck with all this!

    i can relate to your frustration! ~~but, i agree with the first commenter. You can enjoy yourself, and the most positive thing you can do for yourself is to Not React, but Act on your own behalf!

have a great vacation!

    Ouch!!! That's a sucky way to start day #1 of a Vegas Vacation. Time to drop the Blackberry in the canal at the Venetian, then schedule a spa day at Caesar's....if all else fails, rent a jeep, drive out to Red Rock Canyon and pretend you're on the Serengeti...

or better yet....

.....rent a Red Ferrari!

    My response, don't respond to her emails. IF they aren't important, and you are on vacation, let her fill your inbox, but don't respond to any of them.
