Sorry…We Went With Another Candidate with the Skills We Need

That is the post response I have been getting after interviews. I realized how my dead end job has jaded me with making me comfortable in my position to the point where my skills aren’t exactly up to par with employer’s standards. I’m still lucky to be employed, and so is my dumb supervisor. The difference between me and her is that I am secretly learning new programs and skills on the side, while she just depends on other people. She is beyond lucky that she has seniority. We just hired a temp recently, and she is magnificent. Her previous position was much higher and has more responsibility than my current supervisor. We have made suggestions that maybe the temp should take over my supervisor’s position once she gets acquainted with the office, but she declined. My supervisor has jealously issues, and she really dislikes it when other people are “better” than her. Like today, someone gave a report to my co-worker. My supervisor was upset that the work wasn’t going to her, so she grabbed the report out of my co-workers hand, ran to her office and shut the door. Sort of childish, it’s like she is playing hide and seek or something.

Her job should definitely be advertised, and lets see how many qualified candidates we get for the position. I think half of the candidates would put in more leg work than my supervisor…who basically sits in her office and goes on the internet all day.


Work Hard, Break Harder

My supervisor has been in trouble a few times for not allowing meal breaks or a 10 minute break in general. She keep explaining to me about the tasks that I was going to complete. You know, the tasks that are so easy that she can do it herself but she chooses not to? Since I was overdue for a short 10 minute break, I told her I needed to go on break. She continues to explain the task to me, and I repeated myself that I needed to go on break. She screams that she heard me the first time. Ok, so you if heard me the first time, then don’t continue to talk to me about work. No wonder her husband left her. And no wonder people at my job hate her. 

Well, time to go file a complaint with the government so she can get a notice in the mail for violating meal breaks…again!
