Everyone Seems Sad. Biscuit Will Cheer Us Up!

*Post-work update: My boss spent the day talking about her Maxi Pad (she can never remember the word iPad) and basically being overall fun and lovable. She knows she was in trouble. I'm sure of it! I just can't stay mad at her though.

Posted this morning:

Thank you to everyone who commented about my CRAPPY day yesterday. I was hoping to go to bed and wake up feeling better about it but no luck. Really, the thing that made me mad was something my boss said, and I'm sure she had no idea that she was saying anything wrong, so it does seem silly to be upset with her. It was just a dumb comment.

Actually, let's see what you think of it. I don't want to pull a Dooce, of course, but this really got under my skin. To summarize, my boss said that she still thinks of me like I'm a 20 year old and she always will. Okay, so you think of me the exact same way as when I was first hired...

...when I had zero experience...
...when I was working, like, 3 hours a week...
...when you didn't even feel comfortable enough to let me answer the phone...
...before I graduated with my psychology degree...
...got married...
...bought a house...
...worked for you for 6 years...
...while never calling in...
...always willing to stay late...
...helping you with everything, office-related and personal...

...*grumble*

Oh, and did I mention that I was originally going to have the day off yesterday but I came in to help out my coworker?

Aaaargh!

It feels nice to get that out in the open. Yes, no matter how long I stay or how much I contribute or how hard I work, I have absolutely no chance whatsoever of making any kind of advancement at my current job. Even Pam on The Office eventually got past everyone discrediting her as "just the receptionist". And to all the commenters who had an equally sucky day yesterday, Biscuit wants to try to put a smile on your face:





Have a splendid day, my bloggy friends!
