In this time of turmoil and change, not only in my personal life but as well as the country I live in (USA), the same thing just keep resounding in my head…. Can’t we all just get along and love one another?
Now, don’t worry I’m not getting into politics because that’s an off limits topic in my house since BF and I disagree so I will not subject anyone else to the on going disagreements over our country. No, this post is about how people in my personal life can’t get along and love one another or at least me.
In the past few months, I have had to deal with a manager that disliked me because who I was friendly with (coworkers she didn’t like that no longer work with us) but the past couple of weeks it has become blatantly clear she doesn’t like me and I am baffled as to why. This manager hasn’t taken the time to get to know me or even be polite enough to say hello when I say hello to them. To top it all off, now my schedule is being affected because of the favoritism that’s being played with employees.
I had every intention of quitting last week when it happened the first time but I was talked of the ledge by the coworker’s that love me and I adore working with them. Quitting felt like the only option to stop the pain which there has been a lot of that in my life in the past 8 weeks. They told me to talk to the GM and see if I can work it out. I talked, he listened and we decided that I would limit my schedule from working around another coworker that was always so negative about life which was bringing me down instead of up in my own life.
I found out one of my coworker’s had to give up a coveted shift which was during my new availability, I immediately said something to the manager who disliked me and pretty much got shut down. Schedules came out a few days later and confirmed my suspicions…. I’m so disliked by this manager that a newer employee got the shift I wanted and I remain as a volume employee.
Why? That’s is what I keep asking myself and replaying scenarios in my head of what I could have done to make my manager dislike me so much as to make sure I don’t make anymore money then I currently am and pass me up when I was next in life for certain coveted positions. Do I stay with an employer, where I am disliked and my income is now being effected by their actions? I guess it’s time to re-evaluate my life and employment because certain people are just not able to love one another and support each other instead of tearing them down.
