Must be my depression talking... - Paint It Black
Living the American dream one heartbreaking piece at a time
Must be my depression talking...
.. because right now I'm just spoiling for a fight. I think I just picked a real good one, too. Tomorrow it seems very likely that I'm going to have it out with my manager at the office. He practically accused me of lying in an e-mail today. Business politics be damned, I'm sick of his shit.

I sent him a nasty response and in it I told him we need to talk in person. So, the game plan right now is that tomorrow I'm going to sit down with him in his office, close the door and settle this face-to-face with him. I'm tired of these cutesy-pie backdoor fucking games he keeps playing. It ends, and now. I don't care what bridges I burn, I'm going to tell him to his face exactly what I think of his management style and the crap he's tried to pull.

Maybe nothing will happen. Maybe I'll get written up. Maybe I'll get fired. Frankly, I don't care. Whatever happens it'll be a relief to clear the air between he and I.

Don't waste a word

good luck from me, too!

I'm gradually working things out at work by laughing at people's management styles until they crack or I get fired. I think I got to my boss today, and felt a little bad about it...

Oh christ, please do not do that.
You have plans, dude, but you also have other options. Arrange to have another job lined up. Talk about things professionally, when you do go in there. But please do not get yourself fired. Think things through when you've calmed down. Think of the stuff you're working towards, and how unemployment, even for a small amount of time, will hinder those plans. Your boss sounds like a real asshole, but please don't do anything to put your own happiness outside of work in jeopardy.

I would agree with this, but....

I've seen what dealing with Allen's bullshit is doing to you. I know how long you've been putting up with this.

Professionalism doesn't mean being a doormat. From the sound of things, DeVry values you and your opinion enough to listen- so if Allen starts throwing threats around, I hope you'll fight him. I think you have enough evidence among your coworkers of his mismanagement to maybe send him the same way as your previous manager.

*hugs* Prayers are with you inkblot.
