I’m trying to more zen in general, but the outright duplicity of this place is incredible. I must share.
As I mentioned, my co-editor is going on maternity leave in December. I had already asked my boss to bring on someone else as I can’t possibly handle the work of two full-time people (my co-editor is part-time, but says she’s been working four days per week since she got here). My co-editor asked my boss what his plan was for bringing on someone else.
Boss says, “Oh, TTC Writer said she didn’t need any help.”
That lying asshole. Of course I need help. The volume of work is insane.
Why the hell would you undermine your people like that?
“Don’t take it to heart,” said my co-editor.
Well, it’s not that simple. It’s an outright lie. I cannot stand people who lie like this for their convenience (in this case, to save money because this place is dying a slow death).
My resolve is stronger than ever: I am going to charm the hell out of my interviewers next week.
