I just need to vent to someone. I like where I work, i love the people, it’s close to home, it’s pretty flexible and i will get long service leave once i have been here for 10 years which is only 2 years away for me so the positives do outweigh the negatives. My main complaint though is my boss. I have to sit in a section of 3 desks with her and another woman. The rest of my team sit on the other side of my desk and across the other side of them.. they are able to chat with one another and they sound like theyre having fun most of the time. I sit here and unless i get up to talk to someone the most i say is Hi and Bye. I used to sit with team members and it made work enjoyable at our old office but since we moved it really gets me down being separate from everybody else. It’s no fun feeling left out of the social interaction that comes with working in a team as my boss is very quiet and doesn’t really speak and the section i sit in is so quiet. People don’t approach me unless it is work related where i sit because of her. I’m not saying all i want to do is talk all day..Just the interactions are what makes coming to work enjoyable.
We all are not fans of our boss, she never communicates with us. Eg. just an hour ago she said bye to everyone but made no mention where she was going and it was only 2pm.. i guess she can do that as she is the boss but she doesn’t even communicate to us on days she is sick that she wont be in. She only tells her favourites in the team and then we rely on them to tell us. It looks bad as people ask me where she is cuz i sit near her and i never know! Our boss is also against us going out to lunch. We rarely ever go out for lunch, the most we do is walk to buy our lunch and bring it back to the staff room to eat. One time a group of us went out to lunch from our team when she was on leave and the other one who sits near me told her and we all got into trouble for it like we were little kids! We didn’t even take that long or anything. These things really get on my nerves and i wish i sat away from her like i used to. There are no spare desks for me to move to and no one wants to swap desks with me as they don’t want to sit here for the same reasons i have. I am so over it and just count down the days til she goes on leave lol. The environment is alot better now once she left for the day but it’s hard feeling like you have to be silent all day!
