Phone conversation with boss from the other office went well and she is sending me an invitation to a formal interview with their people. It's hard to interview when the reason you are leaving your current position is mostly because of the boss and coworkers at your current job but I said this and it was true- for the past two years I have been wondering what level I would be capable of working at under different circumstances, and I have heard that this office is very successful. It's true that I have heard only good things. I remember exactly where I was when I had this thought- the day was an absolute embarrassing shit show on every level, and I thought...can I do better than this? Yes, I can.

It's just so awesome when a patient answers their phone during an appointment. And by awesome, I mean RUDE. JFC, this pt just stopped her appt to talk on speakerphone to her neighbor for three solid minutes about mulch. I finally stood up to leave and she hung up. And it's always the older patients who do this, never the young people. Unless someone's dying and you know it's an emergency, turn your damn ringer off!

In response to a confession. There's a lot of jumping to conclusions on this one (unless I'm missing something). First, how do we know that this employee only started 7 months ago and was in their probationary period? Perhaps they're a long-time employee who just had a lot of call outs in a short period. Also, we don't know what their job is. Maybe it requires mental acuity so that serious/fireable mistakes aren't made. We also don't know the reason for them being unable to sleep. If you're unsure, there's a kinder way of asking questions instead of jumping the gun and being accusatory and assuming the worst of a person. Sheesh.

You called in because you didn't sleep well? Seriously?? And you're comparing that to someone who can't go in because they had surgery?

Yesterday I got phone call set up with the boss at another branch office, where there is going to be an opening. I met someone from there today, randomly, so I asked what it's like to work there. No leading questions, just what is it like to work there. This is what she said- that people have positive relationships and strong collaboration. I asked about the boss- she's organized, good followthrough. The opposite of my current job, in other words, especially the "positive relationships" part. I have a good shot at this, because I'm highly qualified and there's a shortage in the field. Good sign- when I emailed with the boss and we agreed on a time, she immediately emailed me back a google invite. One of my main beefs with my current boss is that she doesn't use google calendar, and I have to go through the front office for scheduling. Please let this work out! I know nothing's perfect, but I'm sick of this place. I want a fresh start.

In response to a confession. I hardly think you are getting screwed over. That's a bad level of absenteeism. Considering you were probably on probation the first few months, you are lucky they haven't fired you yet.

Called in today because I didn't sleep at all. This is my 5th absence in the last 7 months. I know that sounds bad but I'm at work 98% of the time. I know I'll get called in and written up. A few of my co-workers who have medical condtions, call in alot, are on medical leaves for having surgery get excused because of FMLA. They won't get written up or terminated. I think it's unfair that healthy (or somewhat healthy) people get screwed over. We at least show up for work.

If you're going to question every detail of all the work that I do, at least please TRY to do it close to the time I do the actual work. When you questions the minutia of my job three weeks after I've done it, and you have all the source documents in your office, how the fuck am I supposed to answer your questions without coming into your office and reviewing all the shit I did three weeks ago? No, actually I don't remember how f*cked up that client's AP was before I worked on it. Three weeks ago. I mean, you asked me if it was right and I said yes, then you asked a bunch more questions. Then you told me AR didn't change when it did. Then you wanted the back-up. Then, of course, my computer freezes up and I can't open the file to make you a back-up. Remember when you said you were going to get me a new computer before tax season? No? I didn't think so.

I used to work at a law firm and my cubicle was at the front of the room. Everyone who came off the elevator walked by my desk. My supervisor once called me in because one woman (who I admit I didn't like) complained that I never looked up from my computer to say good morning to her, and it hurt her feelings. I asked why I had to be the welcoming committee. Luckily my boss had a sense of humor.

My bully coworker was mostly a bully because he was having issues with his girlfriend dumping him. So he took it out on me and wouldn't respond to me when I said "bye" at the end of the day either. I thought it was super rude of him, but I also didn't push it. The funny thing is that the men around here are way more emotional than any of the women I work with.
