Today was a pretty good day up until about 2:30ish. As you know (or may not) I accepted a new job position a few months ago, which I am absolutely in love with. It's nice to truly enjoy your job. To want to wake up and smile saying "Gee, I can't wait to work today!".
There is only one thing I don't like about my this position, it's the lady who's place I took. She is planning on retiring next year. (THANK YOU!!) She thinks that every thing I do is wrong. I guess she thinks I am young and dumb.
I have changed a lot of the work space, which to be honest, I would probably be mad about too if in 50 years from now some 20 something year old comes and takes my spot. However, I am changing things to adjust to my needs. The night before I had the new position, after she left, I completely re-did the desk. I moved the computer, the papers, the files, put everything on to her new desk that wasn't mine or something I would need. She came in the next morning livid. I am sorry, I need MY workspace to fit my needs, not yours, lady.
Lately, I have changed the sign-in sheet, a few other memos/notices, and such. I do things differently, but at the end of the day, nothing has changed where it matters, according to my boss or anyone important. But she still insists I am doing things wrong.
A coworker, the one that works with me, who happens to also think every word this lady says is gold, made a comment that pissed me off. She said I was doing something wrong and that I didn't need to do it because it was "easier" because it was making things worse for other people. I asked her how it was messing up things with any one else when OUR boss, and other important people, have said what I am doing does NOT effect the business side of things, if anything, it makes it easier. Then Mrs.ImOldAndSmarterThanYou, said she got a memo that we couldn't do it again. I asked her what she was talking about, she blurted something really fast and turned around and ignored me. I said fine, so I called the important people, again, to find out what the memo was all about? I don't want to cause any fustration, where it matters, to anyone. She said she didn't know what memo Mrs.ImToOldAndSmarterThanYou was talking about and to fax her a copy of it, I told her, she said I had a copy of the memo and then ignored me. I don't think there even is such a memo. She won't show it to anyone, so I don't know what the hell she is talking about.
I am just tired of her, and other infertile, never thinking I can do anything right. I may be young, but I am not fucking dumb.
I am sorry this is long, but it pissed me off for over three fucking hours and I had to get this off of my chest. On that note, Good Night.
