Your friendly neighborhood nerd girl
[multifandom blog? I post whatever]
it’s my gut instinct but i guess i just needed validation from people that don’t know her.
it is a weird/uncomfortable situation to be in and sadly shes not the only person i work with that is a great person but a terrible employee.
and its ok because your message is actually much easier to understand than the jumbled mess i just posted…
ok so tomorrow at work the coordinator wants a big meeting like so big i had to switch my day off to attend, so im pretty sure either i’m getting chewed out or we’re all going to get talked to like idiots again but anyway
there is a person in the office that i like as a person, if we were neighbors we’d be buds, nice older lady. but that’s judging her by non work related stuff. as a coworker she’s a complete asshole. she worked there before i did but left(was fired) and came back a few years after i started. when she came back they told me that i had seniority over her since she lost the time built up before leaving, but because she is twice my age she would never listen to me. she doesn’t like to do the job the way she’s told to; she takes phones off the hook instead of answering them, when she does answer them she does it rudely or hangs up before the person can start talking, she schedules pickups for as far away as possible, she’d rather look up useless shit on the internet and waste the color ink on pictures of horses than answer the phone, and is just generally a jackass as a worker.
however, she got a promotion i was gunning for. she got the meager raise i could have definitely used. the higher ups do not know that she does a lot of the things that she does. people generally keep quiet and avoid rocking the boat.
that being said, i feel that i need to say something to the coordinator. i find it unfair that she got the promotion when she does less work than i do. they keep telling us that we need merchandise, we need cartage, or we’re all out of a job. i bust my ass getting that cartage in by scheduling people that have enough to fill a sixteen foot boxtruck, while she tells people to wait till next month or tells them we cant go to their area.
its all starting to affect my mental health because i feel like im truly unappreciated. ive been working there since 2005 and I make 7.35 an hour. i do tasks that were originally done by supervisors and im being paid below other assistants. other tasks that i did and did well were given to this other person and shes doing a halfassed job at it. but she gets the promotion and the praise and i get jack diddly shit.
i guess what i am asking is:
should i go to the coordinator one on one and tell him how i feel and possibly upset her and lose a friend? or should i stay the course and hope that they will suddenly notice?
i feel like if i dont say anything about her shirking that i will eventually snap and tell her off and lose a friend anyway.
