Although I swear sometimes I want to! Please tell me I’m not alone! I just need to vent, feel free to not continue reading lol.
There’s only 2 other people in my program, the director and her best friend forever. Everyday they take long lunches together, take days off together, go on vacation together. They even get drunk regularly… while at work, where we work with a very sensitive population… and the court system! We have a long history of not getting along and sometimes its worse than others, like sometimes we’re fake, other times we’re having blow out fights. I am always the one trying to kill them with kindness… but they’re just not dying! Ok, that was harsh, I don’t want them to die but how freakin 4th grade is it to gang up on someone and go out of your way to leave that person out of things, like professional obligations, not just social stuff? I get so annoyed.
One time, my co-worker called me a B, in front of several people. I brought it to my directors attention. Wanna know what she said, “Ok, well I’m sure you’ve called us names before so what do you want from me?”. I was like, “Well, yeah I have, but I’ve been respectful enough to say it when you’re not around”. Hahaha, that was one of the funnier things I’ve ever said to her but it was the truth. So maybe I’m a B-word but I’m not a liar.You can’t, as a director, let your personal relationship dictate how you’ll handle a situation like that. Anyway, a year or so ago, they were getting in trouble for not being around when their clients were here, so the left our receptionist their cell phone numbers. Fast forward to today and it happens again. The receptionist says, should I just call her cell phone? I was like sure. The end. So she came in giving me massive amounts of attitude telling me I should of texted her, she expected better than that from me, blah blah blah. I was just like, “I didn’t give her your number, YOU DID” Drunk dummy. And so now that this stuff has been happening for awhile I see the pattern, she becomes a jerk and it lasts for awhile… this is going to be a mean holiday season for me in my office. Oh, and the best part about the holidays. Is that they go to the several parties (like 13) that our office has, get drunk, do no work and I have to stay here and man the office.
You guys may say, is there a higher authority to report to? There is. But they are master manipulators by trade. They knew I was disassociating from them (because I didn’t want to go down with the sinking ship) and when I reached the point where I was done covering for their unprofessional behavior, they went to that higher authority and made up a bunch of crap about me. He tore me a new one and I didn’t even defend myself because I was so blind sided! It was horrible.
I just gotta get outta here but I like the work that I do, I’m so bummed.
