Today at Work

Okay... I have to vent. If this thing had a mood choice, it would be: Irritated. So, a couple weeks ago I got in trouble at work for being too social. Shocking, I know. I was always the girl getting sent to the hall for talking too much. The worst part is, I still get all my work done because I'm crazy like that, but it may not help others around me. Whatever, I shut my mouth and door to be extra anti social.
So we had this huge billing project come up and basically I have to do that and all this other work by myself because my co-worker went out of town. So, I'm working my ass off doing this project and was told by the president to put everything aside and get this done. She calls to check up on some things, and I told her I would be done tomorrow, which she was shocked I would be done so fast. I told her I would, but I hadn't been able to get a few other things done. She said that was fine and that they are low priority so no worries, just get the project done.
Then our office manager comes in and asks if I had done those other things I just talked to the president about not getting to. I told her I was working on the project. She says, "Well, it's no good they are not done." No shit, sherlock, but I'm kind of busy over here. But here's the kicker. She goes back to her office and I see her red light on her phone light up, meaning she's making a call. She called the president to tattle on me!!!
Can you believe it? And, do you know what the president told her? Calm down, she is doing something way more important. Then the prez calls me and says, "Don't worry about her, just ignore her. You are doing a great job, and I am not worried about what she has to say." Talk about some weird signals. I feel like I am in such a dysfunctional relationship... one week I'm in trouble for talking too much, this week I'm praised and told I'm doing a great job and ignore any negativity. I mean, I'm not gonna lie, I'm a kick-ass employee, even if I talk to much. And is it really that bad that people like me and want to be my friend? That doesn't sound like such a bad thing! :) Anyways, I need a new job! If anyone knows of anything, let me know. Obviously here in Seattle since I don't want to move until I'm done with school. I could go on and on about the drama that is my job, but alas, I must get back to my accounting homework. Here's to hoping each of you had a better day today. :)

I'm sorry you had a crummy day. I hate work stuff like that. If your doing your job and doing it well, who cares if you chat a little, (or a lot) : ). Hope your week has gotten better!
