Though I haven't had to deal with menstrual cramps since I went through menopause back in 2001, I've had to deal instead with chronic back pain. I think I'd rather have the cramps!
Woke up at 3:00, and as soon as I did, I knew I wasn't going to work today. Things have been going from bad to worse lately with this new job, and yesterday was the
icing on the cake. I'm constantly getting dinged for things that "I should have known"....and what is even worse, doing them per our department's Orientation Manual which I was told yesterday (and five months later) by my supervisor is "outdated". Huh??
She hands me four
pages of corrections on a project which I had spent hours
completing and announces brightly: "I'm telecommuting for the rest of the day and tomorrow. Ask S. for help, if you need it". Well, I go to do just that...only to discover that she
has left early, too!
I gave up. I didn't know how to do the corrections my supervisor wanted, and there was no one else around to help me, so I just put my work away and read the news on the internet until it was time to leave. On the way home I wanted to cry, but couldn't. I need
this job, but what is the point of staying, if everything I do is wrong? I received my first evaluation in March, and it was the
worst one I have ever received in the 38 years I have been working.
I'm going to start putting back as much of my paychecks as I can, for I honestly don't see myself staying in this job much longer...either voluntary or otherwise.
