How's your week been MTB?
How's your week been MTB?
Well, it's all been a bit of a strange experience to be honest and I don't know what to make of it.
The two girls That sit at the adjacent cubicles still to this day have not spoken to me, asked me a single question about myself and can barely mutter a hello when I arrive.... I'm still not sure if its intentional though - I'm wondering if they're just thoughtless types who have always lived in this region and simply aren't used to having to make new friends/acquaintances(??)
I feel like standing up and screaming across the office 'wake up people! Look alive!!'
But others in my department have been nice, made chit chat in the kitchen, speak to me and are supportive/welcoming and I've had very good feedback from my managers re my work so meh, I'm just plodding along. I haven't had to work with said girl much the last few weeks so its been fine. I did mention to my manager I felt like I was getting little support from this girl and that I felt a bit uneasy approaching her as she seemed put out and my manager nodded and said ok and she would keep an eye on that.
But it now seems I'll be leaving anyway as the woman I was filling in for want to come back!
I don't care tbh - but annoyed that it's now back to the drawing board and will possibly have to commute back to the city ( which is near impossible as a SP with young toddler. But I've been gradually more and more miserable since I started this job and starting to think my situation is becoming hopeless I bet those girls have no idea how hard life can really be for some people. Shame on them.
I think my manager would like to keep me but I was only contracting anyway - finish up next week.
Thanks do much for all the support!! I really appreciate it!
Ahh, that's a shame you have to finish up, but I reckon there is something better out there for you MTB!
I had similar feelings about the place I worked last year - there were some nice people, some people I got along with quite well and also some people who pretended they couldn't see me. There was never really any "team" feeling, it was just a group of individuals doing their job and getting out as soon as they could at the end of the day.
I'm going to be job hunting over the next few weeks/months also, I'm hoping the perfect job just falls out of the sky into my lap! Hoping the same for you If not - move to Melbourne!! We can be unemployed welfare-bludging single mums drinking goon together while the kids amuse themselves hehehe
Sorry to hear you will have to search for a new job. Glad to hear you will no longer have to work with the biatch.
Good luck girl - what will you do? You are capable of anything, just anything! But you will bore easily so keep that in mind.
Drinking a glass of goon as we speak - well, Marlborough region quality goon that is <cheers> x
Yeah, office jobs are "safe", but not exactly fulfilling hey. I hate offices but am not really qualified or experienced in anything except a particular area of litigation, which is always conducted in a CBD office. And I wouldn't get paid anywhere near as much doing anything else. Blergh. Unfortunately seek.com doesn't advertise rock star positions very often
I know bummer!
Pff now my manager has asked me to stay a bit longer...
I seriously don't want to - same crap today.. Talking to everyone around me but not me, totally ignored! It's funny because one of the nice people said to me this morning it's best to ignore certain members of this department... Which makes me realise its not just my imagination!
