I don't know what to do. I've been at my job 5 months now. I feel like I'm a fairly competent person. But I keep screwing up these documents I have to submit for approval and having to redo them. My coworker has to approve them and he verbally abuses me and tells me I need to do better and send them through with zero errors. I told him I would try to fix the mistakes, but he rejects them for things I didn't know were mistakes because he won't tell me the right way to do them. I'm beyond frustrated and it makes me want to quit my job but I like just about every other aspect of it other than the little sh*t I work with. He's much younger than me, fresh out of college, and thinks he's so damn smart. DH tells me that the kid's probably threatened by me and feels the need to have power over me. I really should talk to my boss about it but I feel like I'll be the one getting canned.

I had been really resistant to anti-depressants, but I might need to be open to trying it since I don't feel like I've been getting better with talk therapy.

I just found out my benefits covers mental health services. Even though the co-pay is just $10 less than what I'm currently paying with my current therapist out-of-pocket, I think I will try out my insurance and see if the more flexible hours and new therapist can help me get out this serious downward spiral I've been on for the past several years.

There is like only one cute guy in the offices adjacent to us. I hadn't seen him in a while, but we took the same elevator up just now. I hardly greeted him when he got on because I'm awkward.

So my boss finally recognized that I'm overwhelmed with the amount of work I have to do. That there aren't enough hours in the day to get everything done. So he's taking some of my responsibilities with the files and delegating a portion of them elsewhere. Whew. We're having a meeting on Friday about how the work is going to be distributed. The only thing I'm worried about is that I get a bonus for each cleared file. If I'm not doing the entire thing myself anymore, will my bonus/pay get cut? If that's the case, I'm going to have to look for another job. I'm thinking of leaving my husband, and I've already calculated the alimony and crunched numbers. I wouldn't be able to make it with a pay cut.

Nothing like receiving a text from an angry client after hours when your colleague has thrown you under the bus about a meeting that has not been scheduled yet. I got a text saying, "I am not psychic! if you want a meeting with me you need to ask ME." All I did was tell my colleague that I would like to talk to her about a client before a meeting on Monday. I didn't say it was set up. When she said that was too soon, I told her I would find another date! WTF, lady!

In response to a confession. A bad thing? This is probably the most normal thing I've read on this site in months.

It was surprising, but nice to be welcomed back at work after a week off. I honestly needed the break badly and did not miss work at all. Is this a bad thing?

CW got engaged last weekend. I'm happy for her, but kinda jealous.

In response to a confession. I used to work with a company full of lazy idiots. The manager was one of them. I picked up everyone's slack, dealt with upset clients, its a long story but I was the one who ended up getting fired. Please start looking for another job.
