starting all over again...again
Thursday, June 20, 2019
I feel stupid for letting the work drama get to me. And I forgive myself for being myself. Nice, kind, friendly and always trying. I need a glass bubble to transport myself around in.
I had the talking part of my review at work and was stunned at what a high opinion my manager has of me and my work. In the past year. As my husband commented later: "That's what happens when you demand to be moved away from the woman who's on the phone 30 times a day making loud personal calls." I told him I didn't want to mention that.
So when she asked me if there was anything on my mind, I calmly told her about the friction I'd been experiencing from my millenial coworker, and how I have been trying to handle it. My manager was shocked, because of course, she never sees ANYTHING like this. She told me that a lot of people are basically crazy and she deals with situations like this herself. I said that the Welcome Wagon to our department was closing up shop, and that I was going to keep my head down and do my job like almost all of my other departmental coworkers. She assured me that this was fine. I had debated whether or not to tell her, and decided that the behavior shouldn't go unnoted. Wacko.
I felt a little better after our exchange, and will just avoid having contact with newer people here. I wasn't going to blog about this again, but had to finish "the story". I feel very old, and wish I could retire now, and do more of this:
I spent the first part of my lunch break sketching, and the second half blogging.
Next, I reformulate and move on with my SparkPlans.
