I am doing the whole undercover thing here because I’ve posted way too many pics and am concerned I might get found.
I hate my job. That’s not true. I absolutely loathe my job. I am convinced my boss is actually insane. When she isn’t micromanaging every thing I do (including how I keep the drawers in my desk-I’m not kidding), she is snapping at me because I did something the way she wanted it five minutes ago, but she doesn’t want it that way NOW, and no she didn’t ever say she wanted it that way, I must have pulled it out of my ass. The job was posted as something in my field of study with “light admin work”. I left a job in my field for this. This job is NOT in my field at all, and is 99.9% admin. There is nothing wrong with that, if that was what was advertised, and what I was told I’d be doing. But it isn’t. She keeps promising me more responsabiliy, but that just means MORE admin work. I have brought up to her at least once a week that I want to do other things: she promises me the world and nothing happens.
I know poeple don’t have jobs, and I’m lucky I have one, but I am literally at the point where I have to call Fiance once a week to talk me down from quitting: and that is something I’ve never ever done. I’ve left every job I ever had on good terms.
To make matters worse the only other person in our department just got fired, two weeks before our biggest event of the year. I am now doing two jobs, which I of course get no recognition, thanks or acknowledgement for. I DO get shit on a lot for not getting it all done quickly enough though! Not to mention the fact that the person who was let go was let go for reasons that certainly could have waited until this event was over….but no it was just assumed I could pick up the slack, no prob!
Last weekend she decided at 4:50pm that I needed to stay late (mind you she knew at about 2 and just didn’t say anything). I missed my best friend’s birthday party to stay, and didn’t get any acknowledgement….but again, did get lectured since the items she needed me to source from people weren’t coming in fast enough….maybe because it was 6pm on a Friday and everyone else was at home?
I’m not even looking for advice, because I know no one can really give any….but omg I am just SO ANGRY right now I just might cry.
