| | What to do
I needed to let go of all this stress and frustration I'm holding onto today. Maybe someone could help me out. I had a lil' problem at my new job today. I've been working there for about 4 weeks now, and well I loved working there until today. Every time I ask my boss or the other girl to help me out or to show me something, they seem to get annoyed. I could tell by the tone of their voice. Little questions seem to irritate them. They're always quite, and the other girl always says she's bored. She looks depressed, I guess of working there. Well, the whole point of this is that today I asked a simple question, and my boss after a while, asked me to come to the office. She sat down next to me and asked me what my problem was today, whether it was work related or personal. I didn't really want to tell her. So she kind of offended me and talked down to me, and said, what was my problem that I wasn't catching on as before, that I've asked the same question many times, and that she needs to move on with teaching me other things, which is not true. I feel as though they want to get rid of me, but they can't think up of an excuse. I've never encountered myself with this kind of problem at a work place. This is actually the easiest job I've ever had. I've had hard jobs at hospitals and doctor's offices, and it cannot compare to clerical work. The other girl I went to school with, when we were kids. So at work one day she told me that she tries not to go to that specific mall so that she won't have to see old faces from high school. She avoids going there as much as possible. So I guess she hates that fact that I work with her now. By the way my boss treats everyone pretty mean, and it all depends on her mood. Everyone tries to be on her good side. She tries so hard to be nice. She treats her 8 y/o son pretty mean too. I also think that the girl I work with hates the fact that I went on to college and got my degree. And the reason she knows that is because she asked me. I didn't want to tell her, cause I know some people are sensitive about that subject. My boyfriend and I have goals about preparing for school first, and then a family, so that we won't have to struggle with our children. So she tells me that I'm almost 30 y/o. That I should have children like her. Shes my age. I'm 24 now, I'm not even thinking about turning 30. Then she asked me about my b.f.'s age and I told her that he was turning 28 and then she says that she's never met a 28 y/o man without a kid. He also has a degree, and has other goals like me. We both want children, but now is not the time. So what should I do? Todays Friday, and I have 2 days to think about leaving this job. They pay me very well, and I really need the money. I just never been talked down to. I feel awkard showing up to work on Monday. I wanted to cry so bad. I talked to my b.f. about it, and he thinks I should've told her something about her dirty looks and expressions, and that she should respect me if she wants me to respect her. What do you all think?
