Just signed my permanent papers today. It’s official. Better still, they are counting all my previous years career experience towards my seniority in the role AND vacation time. It looks like I will jump from two weeks to five a year. I was stunned.
i'm so happy for you girl interrupted :hug:

Got in an expletive-exchanging shouting match with my director today. Thankfully we both were using f bombs.

Anyone have better coping methods when people do underhanded things at work? (Not my boss, but someone else, who wound up making me responsible for his crap.)

Told a guy no to something he wanted done, in support of my director. He went behind my back and snuck it through, while my director was away. Nobody told me about the change. Director exploded dumping it all on me.

Hmm well your director shouldn't have dumped it on you.

I don't have any advice about such scenarios. Your director jumped to conclusions as humans often do. If you had to defend yourself, you had to defend yourself. Maybe minus the expletives? But if he was using them... fairs fair

Lol I don’t know I just rant in my head or to my bf or my parents/sister or to you guys haha. Although I do make it way more rational and less crude to you (I actually care to censor myself for once) all which is one reason I love this forum. Anyway then to whoever I’m actually mad at I just play dumb and sweet. Lol. I don’t know. I’m also too scared to confront anyone so i think that largely helps. I should probs stand up for myself a little more.

Got yanked up to the bosses office and formally reprimanded. This must be a new record. Yay me!

Just people offloading their mistakes. Status quo.
