Good girls play nice, but not everyone does. I know sometimes folks don't do it intentionally, but it does not make it right. Sometimes, you need to push back a bit. And you know what? It is OKAY to do that.

With recent promotion comes staffing changes with staff that used to belong to someone else. People are not always so quick to let those pieces go. I know it can be hard. I know it can be rough. I am sensitive to that, but seriously, have a little savoir faire. I should have been included in the conversation before the colleague disseminated a coverage schedule without my knowledge aforethought.

Per my boss, I handled it right on. The good news is said colleague and I both report to him. It's over, but in the meantime I stood up for myself. It felt good to do that. and oh yeah, I walked up the big hill this morning.

    Yay! I myself love a good confrontation. I mean that in the way that it brings about growth. Not the Jerry Springer kind. So proud of you!
