Big People Job

Thanks to everyone for their well-wishes about my grandfather, he is no better but we will continue to pray for him and put his health into the hands of the good doctors. I guess that is all we can do, no?

Now onto the day to day trials of my life, my immediate boss and I are no longer speaking. That is not good. He got upset that I had accused him of misplacing material. I guess I should have tread lighter on his ego. I guess I was just madly frustrated; he keeps my material and than doesn't tell me about it...so guess who gets egg on their face with the director. Its beyond upsetting! He is suppose to be helping me but instead I feel like he is working to sabotege me.

Back in non-descript airlines we had our fair share of office politics, but nothing like this. I went from a big company with 30,000 plus employee's to now an organization with 30 people. Its like navigating a mine field when it comes to everyone. You don't want to upset anyone. Really for me, I feel like Fred Flintstone, I just want to clock in, do my work and clock out. This job is not my life. If I could I would talk to no one, alas that is not to be.

Suddenly I feel like that old ad - "Calgon take me away!" ; )

Sorry to hear your grandfather still isn't well.

Your job sounds nightmarish. I hate office politics - it's so annoying to see adults behaving like children. I think there's nothing wrong with the clock in, do work, clock out approach. Lay low, get the job done and try to make the rest of your life as fulfilling as possible.

You'll have to lay lower if your boss is upset cause he'll be trying to make your life even more miserable now. I also hated office politics. It's so much better working alone and not having to put up with the petty stuff.

Office politics, maybe it's time to move on to a bigger world.

Is there any chance to have a quiet, productive chat with your boss? Bosses have so much power to create misery. I could tell you some real horror stories, believe me. If you can nip it in the bud, do it. You might have to accept that something you did was wrong in his eyes, even if you don't agree with him. NOT that you should be dishonest in any way - just diplomatic. And start looking now for new opportunities, within your organization or elsewhere.

i just wanted to agree that office politics totally sucks.

but mostly, i wanted to ditto, verbatim what Merci said. especially since she said it better than i could have. and also especially since you're going to have to talk to him, at some point. and you may as well be the bigger person and initiate it.

Office politics-comments from me
'take this job and shove it'
'did I tell ya how glad I am to be retired"
I know you can charm folk- you have worked with folk too long- so use yer charm honey. or do like I did- just ignore folk or just don't talk for a week or so- drives folk crazy!

Kate - thank you I will lay low and find fulfillment elsewhere for sure!

Brenda - Amen sister, it is all petty and I just don't understand why people get so wrapped up in it all???

Joe - I am ready, gotta start looking again this means.

Merci - Excellent advice, thank you Merci!

Molly - you know how I am about being the bigger person (not very good at it at all, no?).

Shannon - will do!

Citizen - so frustrating, no?!

Mommantor - I am so jealous that you are retired, wanna trade positions??
