You're Fired!

Well, I went back to my overnight job last night. Within moments of arriving, I found that my boss had done some fairly petty and childish things while I was gone, and aimed them at me.

I took offense. First off, I don't like what she has said. Second, I don't like the fact that she waited till I was on vacation to do these things so that I couldn't even defend myself or respond to her comments and actions. Third, I am quickly coming to hate the job because of her.

So I did what I do best. I wrote her a letter basically telling her that I thought she needed to pull her head out of her ass and deal with the issues at hand, rather than trying to make herself feel special by pulling such unprofessional little tricks.

So, I may be fired when she finally gets it, which will be later today.

God I hope so. I may regret it later, but right now I am so sick of killing myself for that job and not getting anywhere. I am sick of dealing with all the crap the boss dishes out and her inability to be a BOSS. I am also sick to death of working so damn much that I don't have time to actually enjoy my life. I am tired, period.

This may not have been the smartest move, but at least I have my pride intact. I am quickly coming to believe that my pride and my health are worth much more than keeping some stupid job where I am not doing any good anyway and will never get any recognition for all I do.

You did the right thing Barefoot, life is too short to be unhappy for most of the working day. Reading this and your previous posts is it possible that your ex boss has a problem with jealousy?

Like the good book of DirkStar says, "Pride cometh before a firing." Remember also,"It is better to have loathed and lost than never to have vented at all."

I agree, you did the right thing. It's too bad an asshole boss keeps you from getting any enjoyment from a job you do well. Good luck with whatever happens...it'll turn out for the better, I'm sure.

Agree with all the above!! I am so proud of you for standing up to her. It is not an easy thing to do and something that some of your friends (um, like me) can take a lesson from in dealing wit A-hole bosses (I have one of those too).

I know everything will turn out the way it is meant to and that is better than just suffering through this person.

I ask the same: Jealous???

It looks like it is time to start looking for a new job. I know how hard it is to work somewhere when you are unhappy. It sounds like you are burned out.
