We have a real nasty piece of work with us now. She was OK till she was made fulltime permamanet.
She has ingratiated herself with those that matter on the food chain. So far she has got rid of a mother and daughter. Mum worked for us for 8.5 years, Daughter, 3 years. They treated the daughter so bad she resigned... but has found a terrific job on the Gold Coast as a sales rep! Mum was "offered voluntary redundancy" a month later. Gone, shown the door, no goodbyes, yesterday.
I liked them both.
I know office politics better than anyone else on the planet. My experience combined with my studies of human nature and ESP thrown in told me it was gunna happen. I warned them both as best as I could without SPELLING it out, and getting involved, but they just looked at me as if I was mad.
It makes me so sad and mad.
Theres a few more in this creatures firing line. Me, I can feel the vibe, and a guy in the warehouse, and another old bloke. They are replacing anyone with independant thought with kids on $25,000 a year.
Its just so sad.
I, however know how to play the game, squirrelinig away sensitive data as a levering tool if I get the "can I see you" call.
The new guard is gettig rid of anyone associated with the old guard. Makes me sick.
I have resurrected the 8 awards I have been given in 4.5 years, certificates etc and pinning them on the wall behind my desk tomorrow. Im not into that sort of thing,thats why they have been at home in an envelope in a draw, but I reckon they will get the message "HANDS OFF".
Its intersting just how spiteful a female can be. Manipulative to the extreme, I have watched how this witch manoeveres, shes very clever. Has everyone at work feeling sorry for her, her emotions at having to get rid of these two people. Dumb males fal for it, makes me even sicker.
LOL, now when I see the little collectives whispering, I stand up and wave at them. Not a good career move, but Ive never been one to sit on the fence!
Its funny, the girls I have asked for advice all agree that females are much nastier than males when it comes to these situations.
I hate work politics, I have to bite the bullet, get a license to drive a light truck, and leave for the bee keeping industry.
Its written in the stars.
There endeth my venting.
