Everyone gets tired of their job at some point. We all have days that are harder than others and I’m sure we’d all at some point like to tell them to shove it where the sun doesn’t shine. I feel that way pretty often as well, nothing out of the norm, but in the back of my mind for all these years I’ve been working I’ve always wanted to work at home doing transcription.
Working at home would allow me to spend more time on MouthyGirl and with my son and hubby and if I could make it work financially I think I would be very happy. On that same token however, the job I have is not some cubicle everyone does the same job type of a job. I like that. I enjoy the people except for one most days and this job challenges me in ways I’ve never experienced. I could take this job and really set up a nice career as a legal assistant if I play my cards right, which to a lot of people is a good job, lot in life or whatever.
My bosses always act and talk as if they wouldn’t be able to function without me there, but they have before and they could again and I’m not foolish enough to think I’m not replaceable. I am. I also know I have a very rounded skill set and have been able to do things for them that they would previously pay several people to do. I’ve filled a lot of spots there and like to be needed. But there’s one person who makes that job harder than it has to be by the way he treats people, including me.
But at the end of the day, my biggest problem is, do I sacrifice pride for a job that I’m needed in? Do I allow someone to speak to me in a manner I would never let anyone else? Hubby says that I’ve made such a difference there that it might possibly hurt things if I’m not there, I have a hard time accepting that responsibility. Thinking I’ve made that big a difference would be quite conceited of me.
There’s a high turnover there because of this person and he must somehow know that people don’t really like being spoken to the way he does. I try to remind myself that every job comes with it’s bullshit, but I’ve never in all my years of working, been spoken to the way he has spoken to me. I think I’m getting stronger, as there was a problem/issue yesterday and I was able to stand my ground pretty well I think, but still, should I have to bristle to be prepared for an onslaught every day?
Maybe I’m putting the cart before the horse. I’ve got a lead on getting some work on the side, maybe I should just go with it and see what happens. What do y’all think?
