Well some of them, FI, FMIL, FGIL, FSIL, FBIL, and FSFIL, and I have been there around 5 or 6 months, and most of the time I love it, but I am afraid I really offended FMIL last week. Most days it is really awesome, and I have what I view to be a great relationship with my future in laws (yay for me!)
There is a girl who works for us (I am not a boss or any kind of athorative figure at work, I say us because we are family just to clarify) who has had a problem with me from day 1 of meeting her. To be fair I am not exactly a fan of hers either, but its work, so nothing bad has ever happened, and we could work together even though there are personal problems. I guess to give a quick explaination, our work is awesome. 8-4:30 Mon-Thurs 8-4 on Friday, good pay, great benifits, and a ton of perks (again lucky me). This girl used to have a thing for my FI since they have known eachother since they were kids (her mom has worked there 20 + years). Nothing has happened between us before Friday other than a mutual dislike.
I really need to concentrate on the job because I count all day long, and when I lose count of what I am doing, it is hard to get it exactly right again. Friday this girl was just being obnoxiously loud and I had headphones in my ears that are also earplugs and she was still distracting me. I should be honest and admit I was in a horrible mood to. So when I left for lunch I left the girl a note telling her that she was distracting and could she plese quiet down: aka I wanted her to use her inside voice (which my 2 year old son can do). Apparently I didn’t think this through enough and this girl was really upset/mad. Ok I get that when I try to put myself in her shoes, but… When I got back she was being twice as obnoxious and I got in a temper and lost it. I yelled at her “just shut the f*ck up already, some of us are trying to work………..”
Uh-oh I knew I was in trouble then. My FGIL called me to the office and we talked about how I am part of the family and will be going places in the company. Well to be honest with you I work hard, and LOVE my job but still feel like a regular employee….
Everything was ok, FGIL and I talked and I know I need to chill and people don’t deserve to get screamed at, at work. FI and FMIL were talking about the situation later in the day, and FI was trying to make a point about work and said to FMIL so he says to her “Mitzie has thought about quitting because of the way things are”. WHAT YOU SAID THAT TO HER??!!??!!?? I was not very happy.
Uh-oh… So now I am pretty sure FMIL is really mad at me. I sent an e-mail trying to explain the comment. Basically as an employee who tries to work hard and not take advantage, some things happen there that I can’t understand and I don’t agree with. I have never said anything other than to FI about it because a)it is not my company b) I haven’t been there long enough to start expressing my views to the bosses, and c) I love my FILs and don’t want to risk our relationship.
I am hoping when I go into work she isn’t furious with me, and if she is, that I can sit and talk to her about it… Really nervous as I don’t want to become one of the brides that can’t get along with her FMIL….
Thanks for listening…
