Thank you so much for your post! You made me feel like I had an very angry advocate in my corner, and that felt awesome!
Your support means so much to me. She is a *&(%$ and that is why I had to leave my position there and working under her. She has always done stuff like this, and I simply could not take it anymore! Thanks again for your post. I wish I could take you with me to work!
Please don't apologize! There is no reason, my friend! I have been at the same position for 18 months. This 18 months felt like years because my supervisor is incompetent and crazy. She has never liked me, and all I ever heard from her is critisism. She was constantly doing crap like this to make me look bad, and I was so miserable at work! (When I started there, people asked me who my supervisor was.....when I told them I got alot of comments like "Whew good luck, she is a witch!", or "Let's see how long you last." or "Her unit has the most turnover.....for a reason!"
Well, after months of being sick, I had to have a serious abdominal surgery and I have been out for 8 weeks.
I had been trying to find a new position, but she had to approve it, and she wouldn't ever do it, because she knew that it would make me happy. She made my life a living hell, so she must have hated me, yet she wouldn't let me go!
Another supervisor came to me a few months ago, and asked if I would like to be considered for an opening they were going to have in a new program they were putting together. He said of course that I would have to interview with alot of oher people, but I HAD to try, so that I could get away from my evil supervisor!
Then I had to have surgery, right away.
I was unable to go through all the protocol for transferring, because I had to be out on sick leave, It hurt me so bad though because this would be a dream come true. Not only would I be rid of the evil superviosr, but I would be working in a field I have been trying to get in to. After I came home from my surgery, I was just about obsessed with not being able to apply for this new job. I hated to let it slip away!
So, I finally got up the courage to call the supervisor over the new progra, I guess he took our phone conversation as a job interview. My BFF at work called a few days later to tell me that she had just read an email and I GOT THE JOB! Oh my God, I was so happy!
I was worried too though, because I thought that there was no way she approved me to transfer, and then I heard that they went over her head to give me the position. I was scared then, because I knew she would try to mess this up for me if she could. Obviously, you see she is trying!
I am just so fed up with this! I don't deserve to be treated this way, to be sabotaged like this. I don't know what to do. I have always felt like I couldn't really do anything about her. My employer has a strict chain of command policy, which means I have to go to her with problems first. Yeah, right!
Thank you both for your support. It means so much to me!
