I dont know if this is the right place where I should post this but i NEED to vent ASAP!!!!!
Okay so im getting married now on the first week of june and Im VERY ecxited!!! On the other had for the past year Ive been having some crazy issues at work. I mean thses people are very unfair and some people have a HUGE work load others dont, everyone wants to be a boss, and they only play the senority card when it benefits them! That pretty much sums it up!
For a while now I have felt very uncomfortable and unhappy at work but for the time being I need this job (well the money).
But today I think I got to my breaking point many unfair things have happened and I opened my mouth to my boss he called eveyone in to his office and they all made me look like a liar and well I lost it. The people that had complaints didnt say anything and the others went hard and pretty much attacked me.
I walked out in the middle of the meeting crying my other manager went and got me and said that “I will try and fix this I dont want you to feel like you have been forced to leave”. So im still here at work!!!! The person that attacked me at the metting is here and well I just feel like quiting but I NEED this job until I can find something else! Also my lovely hubby to be is unemployed right now he is moving to florida with me two days before the wedding and is scheduled to leave to the Millitary in like 4 months. Im sure his going to try and get a part time before he leaves but for now Im the only perosn with an income.
Oh the best part is that one of my coworkers told me i need “HELP” she said that maybe I have alot going on in my personal life and that maybe its affecting all other aspects of my life. She said I should go buy a tranquilizer and see if that helps me!!!!!!
IDK what to do! Can some of you lovely bees give me some advise!!

One thing you need to not do is let any of them see how upset they make you. Be strong! Don’t ever cry in front of the people you work with unless you’re mourning the loss of a loved or just heard/read something really sad. It gives them a sense of power over you.
Also, I doubt you need “help”, but if you’re this stressed out right now, it would not hurt to ask your doctor for a prescription for a low dosage anti anxiety pill. I take Klonipin for anxiety during stressful times and it really does help. And it doesn’t make me sleepy or emotional like some of the others in the same drug family.

I’m so sorry 🙁 What a bunch of buttholes. Try to not think about them and enjoy your wedding. But as soon as you get back start looking for another job. I just left my job of 7 years because I got so tired of the bullshit people and the ridiculous office politics.

Whoa that sounds horrible. I know that working at a place where things are unfair its hard to go to work on a daily basis unhappy. Your coworkers have some nerve being such jerks to you. I don’t know how this passes through your workplace. Just hang in there and ignore the comments of your unsupportive coworkers. Have you applied/ looked at other places to work at? I used to apply to diff companies, given it takes time til you get called for a job etc. Truth is if you’re unhappy, apply elsewhere and wait for interviews and a job confirmation before quitting. I’ve never really had a backup if I was to quit or lose a job so I would stick to a job, crappy or not, til i get hired elsewhere.
Also, what is your boss doing to fix it?

All my boss did was send an email to everyone that made things worse! What they are going to do now I have now I dea! Hopefully he finds a better solution than just sending emails.

The job market sucks right now. If you don’t have insurance you can go to your county health dept and they will assess you and give you prescriptions on a sliding scale basis. I’ve had to work hard to keep my emotions under control. I work in an office where I am only one of five americans and it’s exactly what you would call a hostile work environment. We are treated very substandard and they don’t care.
So…I’ll be damned if I’m ever going to let one of those jackasses upset me and make me cry in front of them. Practice makes perfect. I’ve learned to keep my cool and speak in a calm but forceful voice that either makes them feel stupid or intimidated enough to go sit their ass back down.
