My job is trying to kill me. I am trying to find a new one but it is difficult in this economy.
I am accounts payable for a small construction company.
The accounts receivable person when on exstended medical leave and now I have to do her jon as well as mine. No additional compensation I might add, I am salary so any overtime this is costing my I am not paid for.
I was cross-trained in her position so I could help out for sick days and the like NOT to take over the job for and undetermined time.
Also this month is out yearly Audit so the auditors have been pestering me for infor and reports.
Now the receptionist is going on vacation for a week and are going to make me do her job as well!!!!
I CAN'T!!!!! IMPOSSIBLE. I actually tried to refuse and they actually told me that I have no choice. Do what they tell me or hit the road, there are dozens of people desperate for jobs these day. "Times are tough and we can't afford a temp so you will just have to deal"
I wish I was kidding.
I went for a walk during lunch with one of the bosses because I was deperate. He made a joke about how much "energy I had" I snapped back that I was actually dead tired, but in need of an agression release. Then I broke into a job and let him eat my dust.
I am past caring about being called on the carpet for an attitude problem. I am usually quite polite and respectful to my superiors and you can see it had not gotten me anywhere good.
Where it relates to Spark. Stress is never good. I channeled it well with a lunch walk but all I want to do when I get home is crawl into a bottle of whine and a junk food.
Thankfully I HAVE to start getting ready for Thanksgiving as it will be at my place.
Maybe that will keep me occupied enough not to binge.
Really I am so stressed my stomach hurts and my head is throbbing.
