I had a work event from 10-3pm and interacted with tons of people from the public. Our Director was there and had feedback on some missteps. The event was good, but could have been better. Okay...but keep it mind I was the only staff person there and it was a first time doing this kind of event. I was managing two staff roles and I could only do so much as one person!

I screwed something up at work like, big time. It caused a bunch of product rework and I feel like SUCH a dumbass for making the mistake. I did own up to it fully and took care of all the necessary paperwork to fix it, but I feel awful that there's going to be extra work associated with this. I honestly wonder if I'm in over my head sometimes, but I was very scared for a while that this mistake was going to get me fired.

I'm trying to get excited for work retreat today, but I can't right now. It's all work and planning for year ahead. Why call it a retreat then? There is no respite whatsoever. Wish there was just 30 minutes to do something fun.

In order for someone to insult you effectively, you must first value their opinion.

"Never take criticism from someone you wouldn't go to for advice". That is my mantra in dealing with my idiot snot-nosed coworker these days. Most days I really wish he'd get hit by a truck. When is he going to learn that being an asshole is NOT the best way to communicate with me?

I used to manage a Pizza shop,had 4 locations. They changed the sauce to cut costs. It was awful. The only thing I can compare the taste to is when you chew an aspirin. We went from being a semi-busy place with 6 employees to having 4 days a week where I worked open to close on my own because maybe 1 or 2 people would order pizza a day. And that was people from out of town. Asst manager worked the other 3 days. We ended up being the only 2 employees there. It was like this for 2 months before we finally shut down all locations. When we shut down, Asst manager stole all the cash, DM tried to refuse me my last check because he thought I should have to pay for the asst manager stealing. I wasn't allowed to fire asst manager before hand, he was DMs drug dealer. I wasn't going to pay for his mistake. He probably wanted to keep my check so he could put it up his nose.

So DH is in the military. I just learned a few days ago that we have to move in about 6 weeks. I did the honorable thing and told my boss right away so she can hire someone to start when I'm gone. She wanted to know the latest I can stay on schedule, I told her about 6 days before we move so I can make sure we get everything done. She practically begged me to stay longer. Then today she gives me 2 weeks notice, said she hired some new people and she wants to give them my hours, but oh...I need to train them for the next 2 weeks. Yes I've been doing the job of multiple people. This just makes me not want to be honest, and just wait til last minute to leave a job. I'd leave and stick her with the training, but I'd actually like to use her as a job reference.

In response to a confession. Well here's the thing--we have to use our PTO for either sick days or vacation. So depending on the reason I would have to be off work, I'd need a doctor's note for being sick but I wouldn't need funeral proof for a bereavement day (I know this because my CW lost her grandmother who lived in Nepal and she took a bereavement day without having to attend a funeral). So I don't know. I should probably just suck it up and go to work and have them Skype me or something. It makes me so mad that we get only 80 hours of PTO to use for both sick days and vacation for the whole year. I had a stomach bug that cost me 2 days earlier this year, plus some time I had to take off for family visits and a massive power outage.

My company lets us have one unpaid bereavement day if we lose an extended family member (they give 3 if it's an immediate family member). My grandma is close to the end of her life and her siblings, whom I've only met like once, are coming to visit during the week so they can celebrate her birthday with her before she's too ill to do anything. They want to see me since they haven't seen me since I was tiny and I have no more PTO to use to take the day off. I'm considering lying about a relative dying so I can take the day to visit with my grandma and her siblings. I mean, it's sort of like a funeral-before-the-funeral, if that makes sense. I figure it's not a huge issue since the time off is unpaid. Thoughts?
