I’m sorry. Did I say no drama at work in my last post?
I must have hit my head prior to writing that one.
Because when you’ve got females involved, sooner or later, drama is gonna try to happen.
My co-worker sent an email to me and my bosses yesterday “kindly” asking me to be careful when filing people’s returns because she found several mistakes that I made and blah, blah, blah I am trying to pull rank without saying it out right blah, blah, blah “thank you.”
Oh no she didn’t!
The several is what got me.
I made one mistake that I knew of, and even brought it to my boss’s attention several days prior because when I make a mistake I own it, even though making mistakes sucks and owning it sucks even more. hahaha
And she did catch one mistake that I was not aware of yet, so I gave her credit for that.
But I am sorry, if you are going to try to throw me under the bus, I am going to come back with a painfully detailed report to include names, dates and times of all the mistakes you thought I made that really weren’t mistakes you just didn’t check with me or the big wigs first to know that it was all covered.
And I am not going to say thank you at the end of my email either.
Later in the day we had another email exchange in which she started and pulled a boss into the mix, trying to say that I didn’t do something correctly.
I replied to all, I know that I didn’t do such and such. I don’t have the time and no one else seems to have a problem with doing it for themselves.
What she failed to mention was that what she was asking me to do would enable us to make sure no extensions were overlooked.
Both bosses where down at my desk within 10 minutes all smiles and like, ok, what’s the problem?
We quickly resolved it once I understood, and all was well.
Kinda funny, if there is drama elsewhere, it is ignored or only addressed when push comes to shove because right about now is not the time for drama.
But when it comes to her and I, well we are the two wheels that make the entire bus go round and round, and although either of us could be replaced, it so would suck for them because we both have a pretty good handle on everything that is going on.
I think she’s tweaked because she’s been there for close to five years, and I have only been there for seven months and have earned the same amount of respect and responsibility as she has in a shorter period of time.
But then again, I am 15 years older and have more work experience under my belt, and I happen to be control freakishly organized and on top of things, to the point that any OCD inclined person would be proud.
After yesterday’s exchanges, I couldn’t help but to think it is such a good thing that both of my bosses had only daughters.
It has given them skills to handle “sisters” squabbling for “daddy’s” approval.
As for drama, I am not a fan.
So if you try to start it, I am going to state the facts to all involved at once, move on, and if you need me, you know where I am.
She on the other hand is having hush hush pow wows behind closed doors with another co-worker, so today should be quite interesting for me! hahaha
