Do As I Say, Not As I Do

I survived Monday. Part of the reason why I dreading it was because my boss texted me yesterday morning, bright and early for a Sunday, telling me to be in by 8:30. I managed to make it in by 8:30 but of course, she made it into the office way past 8:30. Love that “do as I say, not as I do” management style. Insert eye roll here.

Not only did she come in after 9 but she left before 5. She has kids, which to her, gives her free reign to come and go whenever and since I, a singleton with absolutely nothing to do but work, should slog it out.

I used to love my job. Those days are long gone.

I have to take the big step to find another job. It is the unknown that scares me and the fact that I don’t really know what I want except that it is not what I have now.

I just want a job where I make  difference.  Where I do something to help someone.

I am still feeling down. I just want to curl up and sleep until Memorial Day at the end of May. I am doing laundry tonight because it is much needed and the first night in a while where I could do it.

How was your Monday?


  1. Work dynamics can be so frustrating! I have been where you are, wanting another job and not sure what to look for. Have you tried journaling about what you would like in a job, what you would like to do? Perhaps take some online interest tests to see where your main interests lie? I used to do things like that when I was trying to figure things out. Even looking at job listings can give you an idea of what's out there.

  2. Don't let fear of the unknown and fear of the change keep you in a job you hate! You are smart and can do anything you set your mind to...including a new job!

  3. I'm sorry you're still feeling down. But I agree with the above comment that you need to swallow that fear and get out there and find a new job. I'm sure you'll feel happier. We spend almost a third of our lives at work. It's bad news if we spend that third hating life.


I love your comments!
