What a Day...

Okay, so never in my life have I had someone talk as degrading and ugly to me as my interim boss did today. Let me back up and explain...

Yesterday, during our after the show meeting, myself and the anchors had a disagreement. So, we told each other our side of things. Well, because we had a disagreement, we ended up in the boss's office today. NOw, I am sorry, but are we not adults? Should I not be able to stand up for myself without ending up in the boss's office every time?

So, we ended up in there and we all met together first. After that was over, she told me to stay...and she proceeded to tell me how stupid I am and that they are right and I am wrong and if I was smart I would listen to what they had to say. I told her that one person cannot be wrong 100% of the time. But when she told me that I wasn't smart, there were so many things I wanted to say to her. But I bit my tongue. She told me she wants me to quit. I don't know if she can "let me go" just yet because I haven't been there 90 days...

Never in my life have I had a group of people that just wanted to get rid of me! Yes, I have had problems with people in the past, but almost always worked those problems out! Everyone is not always going to agree on things...and for them to say either you agree or you leave, that's just unfair...and unprofessional. I mean, what makes companies great is the diversity in them. Different ideas bring great things together.

So, I know beyond the shadow of a doubt that I won't be around at my job in about two weeks. Please PRAY HARD that I get the South Carolina job. If I don't, I am in deep trouble.

I agree and claim with you right now that you are going to SOUTH Carolina, not (NC)tee-hee.

Standing in agreement with you Nic. I have been in hostile work environments. I'm praying for you. Kill em with kindness even if it kills you!

Nicole, I am so sorry to hear they are treating you this way. I can't even imagine! May they see Jesus in you, even though I know this has to be SO hard for you. I'm so sorry. Will pray for you!
Love you,
Rach

Nicole, I know it's very difficult to see when you're in the middle of the situation, but that Interim Boss seems like she's extremely insecure. It really isn't your problem.

I am praying for you to get the job in SC. It sounds like a better fit for you and, certainly, would be a healthier environment for you.

I'm so sorry you're having to walk through this difficult time, but the Lord will use this. If, for no other reason, just think how wonderful it will feel to be in a work environment where you're appreciated.

Take care.
