Feeling a little better

There has been a lot of drama going on at work for me. In so many words I'm getting let go and my boss refuses to accept that and makes it look like I'm the one quitting. It's been rough.

Today my boss made a phone call to me that pushed me over the edge. He didn't know that on the phone because I kept my cool so well. We just decided we would talk it all over tomorrow.

The thing about my boss is he doesn't ever let you finish your story. He interrupts and often doesn't listen to everything you have to say. In all other situations I just scream inside, smile on the outside, and let it go.

Not this time. I just sent him an email that just UNLOADED on him. I did not say awful, mean things. I just said things that needed to be said so that he could understand my side of the story. I would post it just so that you could see how nice I was being but then it would leave a lot of open ended questions that I'm not prepared to answer right now. Mostly because I don't know the answers to most.

I just wanted to let you know that I feel so much better. Just knowing that he now knows where I'm coming from makes me feel like when we talk tomorrow we are on an even playing field.

I have a boss that is very similar in a sense. They live in the DRAMA!!!
It makes work no fun.
Good Luck Luanne you deserve the best!

I think it's good that you did that, especially since you feel better now. And if you're not going to be working for him anymore anyway, it's not like you'll get fired or anything over it. Good job!

Awww, what a pain. At least you got it off your chest and now he knows and can respect you for it :)
