All managers have their Dilbert day


This is one of the issues I have with my boss. Now, let me just say that I vent in the extreme here. Given what it could be, my boss is amazing. But that still doesn't make it comfortable for me in the long haul. And her attitude towards me is soured given all the mistakes I've made in the last year+ with all the stress I had been under. I came to the conclusion Friday that I need to do something to make real change. I'm still not sure yet how to define that - whether it be getting a new job or surviving on a half time job (my job is split in two there). I know how I felt when my job was on the line - scared but also relieved. That was about a year ago. Right now I'm stronger, and I can make change. To what and how, not sure... I'll be working on that and maybe daydreaming here. IN the meantime, my attitude is that I have to work extra hours to get done what my boss expects to get done. And that's that and I won't whine about it (unless I get really tired). I've had it realllly good for three years, and it's time to suck it up. Work/life balance can be tilted to one end and I can still survive. Just watch me.

And I believe someone will love me, and I'm not a sheep... ;-)

I am a total sheep. Except I am a wolf on the inside :)

Great Dilbert strip, hope things work out... and please don't let your inner wolf take over the controls, things could get nasty :)

I think it can be a big relief even to feel like there might be an option for change. It may or may not occur or it may be on a timetable you don't expect, but just knowing there are alternatives....

Ha, I like that Sebastien...
Alas, the wolf often rears its ugly head...
Radicalmom... i just gotta get moving on it.
Laura, yes. Still didn't help me clear it from my mind over the weekend though...

I hope you get your work situation fixed. It sucks to be unhappy at your job. I'm a little scared of change, so I'm impressed with your bravery.
