Well, it is me again, the angry and upset employer of the day.
Perhaps I can ask someone to kindly enlighten me on my situation, am I overreacting or if it is normal for me to get upset over such thing?
Yesterday morning, I had told my dear boss that I need to leave 5:30pm sharp as I am expecting someone at home to repair the kitchen light which was spoiled for months. At 5:00pm, she was having a chat with her client about some ideas and he was kind enough to let us know that he will push his colleagues to sell for us… our products this morning when he has a session with them. My boss asked him what time will he be meeting his colleagues today and was told 10:00am. A brilliant idea came up to her and she say “Great! I will have (Emo=aka Me!) to work on a nice EDM for you by tomorrow so that you can present this to you colleagues!”.
I don’t mind to do extra stuff even though I am only a sales person. So I agreed to bring my stuff back home to do and will email to her last evening. I worked my ass off till 11:30pm. This morning, first thing I asked her when I reach office is “How is it? Anything I need to change?” eargerly, with hopes! Well, her reply “Emm.. no need, we don’t need the EDM anymore as there seems to be some challenge on the client’s side”. Hope crashed! BOOM!!!
This is the crappiest thing I ever heard!! Crap to the max! You obvious liar, you LOVE to commit stuff which you have no idea and LOVE to lie around to cover your own ASS!! I kept quiet. Story doesn’t ends here – Obviously she didn’t bother to open the attachment to view my painstaking work so after I kept quiet, obviously upset, she opens the document to see. Instead of a THANK YOU or GOOD JOB or at least a NOT BAD, she question me on a remark which I COPY from our website (she says that sentence dont make sense), which I believe was written from my professional Marcom team in our Head Office.
How shitty can it be? Breathe In…. Breathe out….. Breath In…. Breathe out….
