Well some of them, Fiance, Future Mother-In-Law, FGIL, Future Sister-In-Law, Future Brother-In-Law, 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 Future Mother-In-Law 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 Fiance 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. Fiance and Future Mother-In-Law were talking about the situation later in the day, and FI was trying to make a point about work and said to Future Mother-In-Law 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 Future Mother-In-Law 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 Fiance 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 Future In-Laws 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 Future Mother-In-Law….
Thanks for listening…
