What not to do in ANY economy…

Is to tell your boss that he doesn’t have to be an A$$hole about it…. This is what I did today when my boss pushed and pushed and pushed as to why I wasn’t getting it done when we’d reduced the amount to be tested by 60% and added a person.

Shelley… girl when am I going to listen to you and get the hell out of here. I dunno… I just dunno.

Tonight I’m tired and my head has that post crying jag ache… and I’m wondering how long I’ll have a job. They need me until this is released, and then who knows. I can only keep my head down and work.

I don’t think I was in the wrong for saying it… I’m tired of being his whipping boy, something I’ve been since he’s started as my Supervisor. My Team Lead told me I just needed to suck it up. I told her there are no such things as bad employees, just bad managers and if they didn’t like the way I was behaving, maybe they should readdress the way they talk to me.

Last month the countries GDP went down by 2.6%. My GDP may be going down by more than that if I’m not careful!

On a side note, all of a sudden, the computer is working fine again. I was able to reboot and then take the OS out of the picture, via F10 upon boot and get a system restore under my belt on this thing and now things are working OK. It’s nice to have SOMETHING work in my favor.
