Today a secretary of the department I started working at said a sarcastic comment to me.
She’s probably my age or younger( not sure).
I complained and said that I need my salary and she said there’s always a delay for new employees.
I said I support myself financially and I need my salary on time.
She said and I quote “ maybe you could get charity from here and there”

I was shocked and said wow not to this extent.

I dunno why I’m still shocked at peoples behaviour honestly.
So far I’ve seen that everyone’s rude.
Just wanted to share this with you all.

If you are short of money I would talk to your boss or your Human Resources department and I’m sure they could sort a temporary payment out for you until your salary comes through.
Try not to take the comments you heard personally, people nowadays are just self absorbed and insensitive. It’s a reflection of them not you.

That was rude and unecessary! Ignore her, I know it's easier said than done. :low:
