I am so annoyed right now I can’t see straight.
So we are installing a new buzzer/intercom system in a building I manage. Previous it wasn’t there. My boss told me to call each tenant and ask them the requisite items I had to get from them for this system and “feel them out for how they feel about it”. He said try not to email, I want you to talk to them.
So I called, got some one the phone, but the majority I left voicemails for. Then did follow up calls. I was telling him this when we discussed this new system all along that I was trying to talk to all tenants but they were not calling me back.
Finally I sent out emails to the straggling tenants who replied back with the requisite info but no pros or cons about the system going in.
I Relayed ALL THIS INFO to my boss, saying “no news I take as good news” as only 1 tenant is unhappy with it, 2 are happy and the rest don’t care enough to reply with anything more then the requisite info.
Well it gets installed and the 1 disgruntled tenant insists everyone in the building hates the new system. My boss asks me, I again tell him what I said above, that I told him this before, and he agreed with me back then no news is no negative news.
NOW he says I should have pursued it more and blames me for not talking to everyone personally, even though I told him back then I couldn’t get them on the phone and he okayed the system with this information. He is still saying it is my fault because I should have pursued harder, even though he was satisfied back then and therefore I felt I did not need to!
I just find this ridiculous. Am I wrong? I am really pissed off. I just find my boss says one thing then when it bites him he finds what other people did wrong even though he has been fully aware of this.
Anyone else have this?
