I know its been almost a year since I wrote anything but with graduating and moving and getting a job I been kind of busy. Also on this year of my birthday Rich and I got engaged. Planning a wedding has also kept me very busy. We are getting married Oct. 1, 2005 at the Country Abbey in Justin, Texas. We already reserved that, our photographer and Candy Haven to make our cakes. We had our cake tasting last weekend and that was so much fun. I am still looking at dresses but have not gone to the store to try them on. I wanna lose a few pounds before I go. I will have a bigger update later I just need to rant about my job today so enjoy.
My Worthless Boss
I am so pissed at my boss today. I have been working 2 months on a standards scripting manual for new employees. He plans on hiring a few more people here and India. We had meetings like 3 weeks where I took notes and it was also being recorded. I got sick thanks to him since he came to work sick. I missed a whole week of work with bronchitis. While I was gone he told my fiancé who also works there that I was not taking enough notes. I was so pissed off at that point because he never talks to me. I have been transferring my notes into Word and organizing them after each meeting so I had about 12 pages of notes. He never once asked to see them so he could not say I was not doing anything. He asked to finally see them last week and I gave them to him and he was like umm I am not sure when I will get through these and give you feed back. Sometimes I think he is a sexist since I am the only female in the office. It could also be his culture since he is from India and all. Well today was the last straw.
I have been listening to the recording of the meetings since last week and the recording is not very good at all. Like ever 30 seconds it starts screeching
really loud and I have to wear earphones so I do not disturb the other employees. I have been working so hard on it to get it done because my fiancé is
leaving soon and I want to quit to. What I have been doing is listening to the recorder taking notes and listening again and seeing what I miss. It is like 7 hours long total the recording and I am barely through 30 minutes. I have been reorganizing my notes into html just because I thought it would be easier and less time to get the manual done. Well today he comes to me after I sent him an email on Friday that I wanted to talk to him. He sits down and talks to me for 2 minutes that is about average time I get to talk to him. He told me he does not think I would be useless without his help. Oh my gosh I just wanted to smack him because I have been doing all this work with out since the meetings were over. I have only emailed him once and that was today because I could not understand the recordings. He still has not gone over the notes with me that I gave him last week and now he wants me to stop putting the recording notes I have into html where they are all organized and start doing them in word and organizing. That’s another step which in the long run will take forever to finish this document. The best part is he said he does not have time to spend with me until about 4 -6 weeks from now because he hired a new guy and needs to work with him. I always get pushed backed and to think he really wanted these manuals.
I so hope one of those jobs I interviewed for in the last two weeks call me back. I really would like to finish this project mostly just for my portfolio but they way he is treating me if I get another job I will not finish it and it will be his entire fault. I do not really care at this point and have spent the last hour since he talked to me searching for jobs online. If he thinks I am useless without him then I will work some and look for jobs. *giggles*
Ok, that makes me feel better to get it out. Don’t up just hate worthless people who try
to being you down to their level?
