In response to a confession. The way you approached new lady was super professional and admirable! I LOVE how you asked, "do you think I am the team assistant?" and I LOVE how you made clear "I AM HERE TO HELP" after she threw you under the bus to TL. Do as poster 61431 advises, in addition to getting witnesses to conversations and CC'ing TL or others in emails. And what newbie contacts the person on vacation to whine!!! WOW, awful. Make sure you MEET ASAP with New lady and a)make an agenda of issues for yourself (e.g. phone disabled/taken!!, # of leads (can't take ALL!), email, other) another person in the room, and c) that u email Newbie immediately afterward with a synopsis of the convo and do-outs/what was agreed on said date and time. She is giving out YOUR email?! NO. and don't even say you were the assist. once upon a time....not relevant! Good luck!

I had gotten so used to working from my laptop at work, moving in different workspaces that I completely ignored my desktop monitor. It's elevated and now it's set up again. My head and neck already feels a ton better looking up than down. Yay to improving my posture.

In response to a confession. Oooh, she sounds like a real shark. I've worked with people like her. Don't give her an inch and don't be afraid to step on her neck, because she's already stepping on yours.

Lately, we've been a bit slow at work. I feel like I'm such a slacker when we aren't busy! I spend most of my day doing research on things, watching industry webinars, learning more about metrics we need to start measuring to win this stupid award, and going to meetings. I mean, I guess it's fine but I am really only busy for like 5 hours a day. I feel like most people aren't totally busy all 8 hours they're at work unless they are like, nurses. When I worked in healthcare I was busy the entire time I was at work. I kind of miss that busy-ness although I kind of like having a "cushy" desk job too.

2. So I said, "Please don't take this the wrong way, but do you think I'm the team assistant? I used to be, but not anymore." She said no, she knew I wasn't...she'd just always had a team assistant so she didn't know how to do things, and TL said I can help. I said I can help, but I can't take responsibility for the entire files without notice, can we take a few minutes to go over the processes? No, she was busy (with her multitude of clients), maybe next week. Not 15 minutes later, I get a text from TL: "(New lady) just told me you're upset that she reached out to you for help." Really, lady? You really ran to our TL, who is out of town, to tell her I was "upset at having to help?" She showed up at the office a few hours later, surprised to see me, and I let her know that I AM HERE TO HELP but upset at her running to TL like that.

1: We have a new team member, a woman in her 60s. We have a couple systems for leads. One is, the team leader puts them in the queue, and anyone can go in and pick up one or as many leads as they can handle. Within a week, she took EVERY SINGLE LEAD and put it in her queue - like 10! The other is phone leads that come thru an app. But I've been unable to answer these. Turns out she took the team phone while TL is way, and...disabled me? I don't know. But right now she's working maybe 20 leads while I have none. Worse, even tho she's been in the industry 3x as long as me, she has no idea how to do anything, so she's been asking me to take care of a lot of her paperwork, even telling clients to send stuff to me. I asked her to meet me in the office to go over everything. She kept pushing the time, and finally said she couldn't make it until next week.

I organized a summer cleaning party today for our office -- a first. It was a huge success and we plan to do it seasonally now! I used our conference room as command central with areas for donate, e-waste, shred, etc. Another table with fun party signage, snacks, and music. We threw out 2 32-gal bags of trash and countless trash bins, organized our closets/drawers. Success!

I wish my DH could quit fighting with his boss. The guy is a monumental ass hole, but still. DH should be taking the high road. His boss is such an ass hole. And, he's an elected official. Fantastic. DH wants to run against him next election cycle.
