So long story short, I was hired to do one job and ended up doing 2 jobs (including running a long term care facility that I had no background in). Well we have now found someone to take over this business and I am back to doing my original job.
Well this morning I came in 30 minutes late as I was in a meeting. The person lets call him P, was having a meeting with my boss about the progress being made in this long term care facility.
Now up until now, P, has been nothing but nice to me, singing my praises on how well I have run the place while I did with what little experience I had etc. Well P doesn’t see me come in, so I sit down and start working and then I hear my name so I instinctively tune into the conversation (call it eavesdropping, whatever, but I didn’t listen until I heard my name being repeated over and over again). So as I am listening (we have a completely open office), P starts telling my boss what a great job he is doing and how he has fixed the issues I had like the staff being terrified of me and he is rebuilding their confidence now. He also complained that I asked him to put a lock on a freaking door to prevent people from cutting through the property.
I could not believe how two-faced this guy is. Telling me all these wonderful things then slagging me to my boss.
Well the meeting finishes and he turns and sees me sitting there and gets flustered. I barely make eye contact and he goes “Oh missjewels, I didn’t see you sitting there, didn’t even hear you come in” so I go “I could tell based on the conversation” and turn back to my work.
He leaves and my boss walks past me and I ask him if I heard P right and he flushes and say yes, I did, he did say everyone was terrified of me…I said “funny, they all tell me how much they dislike him”. My boss told me to not get offended, that P was just trying to make himself look good.
I agree that is what he was doing but it still stings to think that I thought he was a good guy but he didn’t hesitate to make me look bad.
This is just a vent, any advice you have to help me feel better would be awesome! Thanks.
