Twitchy, hostile, no attention span, doesn't seem to care about their own job, not really asking questions, grandiose.
I would add generally manic behaviour. Often talking a mile a minute with the thought process lagging behind. If the drug is being snorted then look for sniffling. Also look for weight-loss and sloppy appearance.
So yesterday he came to me to tell me, among other things, that so and so had to get on my computer earlier in the week and while so and so was on my computer, he saw something related to my bankruptcy case (he didn't say if it was a website, an email, a scan) and I need to not be taking care of personal things on company time. I abruptly responded that I seldom leave for lunch, I work through lunch 99.9 % of the time, so if I want to take care of something personal in nature for 10 min throughout the day, I will. I am going through a bankruptcy, my meeting of the creditors is in two days... I get an IRS notice that I have to file 2011 taxes before my meeting on this Tuesday, I did a quick Google search on it, scanned the IRS notice, sent my attorney an email... Nothing was slack that morning, although in the same breath he did mention some housecleaning items in the kitchen... Which is a new one to me, after five years, I'm the maid for the office. And sure I could wait for my actual lunchtime time... But what I did with my BK case took all of 10 mins, and during this time no one asked me to do anything, and I was not neglecting my work responsibilities in the 10 min process.
Come to think of it, anytime he brings it to my attention that I'm doing something wrong, he says someone else brought it to his attention.. I get along with everyone else, I've never heard a direct complaint.. my coworker/friend has never heard a direct complaint about me and she's HR.
What can I do? Was I in the wrong? I can't guarantee I won't do personal things on company time... I have too much going on. I don't feel this professional level of employment should have this restrictions.. and it hasn't been that restricted for anyone there... He!!, everyone has always worked on flextime and people step out periodically throughout the day for personal calls throughout the day.
Ugh.. help me... I'm going through BK, I can't afford to quit, the pay is good... But if I could just get fired! lol
This is really affecting me... I didn't have an appetite all day, I cried about when I got home, my H wanted to kick his ass... And in all seriousness he says he does notice how its affecting my overall mood even at home. This could throw me into depression. I think I could be on the verge. I can't afford to be depressed, not with my babies growing up, our still healing our marriage... No, I don't need anymore. Posted via Mobile Device
I had to leave this morning cause my son had pink eye... I got a text to let me know about a company wide mtg in an hour. I called in and that was it.. that was the announcement.
Some really strange things have happened in my life recently... You ever feel like the world is against you? That's what I feel like the past several years has been like. Seems like there was ALWAYS something negative in my life. And I don't know, all of sudden the last real negative in my life just left. It did. I'm stunned. My mom and I are communicating, my H and I are getting along fantastic, my brother and I tolerant and respectable towards each other and our life choices. And top of my list for me --- I am not and do not want to drink alcohol.
Wow. Sorry for the ramble... Just thinking outloud. Posted via Mobile Device
I'm glad for you. I don't think his motives were work related and he was toxic to you. Posted via Mobile Device
That's it!!!!!! OMG. I was verbally and mentally abused by this man for almost 2 years, I didn't know how to stop it without financially destroying my family. That's why being fired was so very important.. I was stuck.
I'm not stuck anymore. I won't be bullied everyday, 9 hours a day anymore. I really think it was destroying me. Posted via Mobile Device
Just jottin' my thoughts down after a beautiful day . It was a whole different atmosphere today... One where I can function. I know I will never get an email from that man with 50 exclamation points or be asked to do the impossible day in and day out. I have a normal job now.
Our new CEO told us today that they had a legal and moral obligation to their employees and that is why changes were made. Apparently it wasn't only me complaining.
You mentioned early on to go talk to his boss... And I told you he is the boss . I thought about what you said that day and decided it couldn't hurt a thing to go talk to one of the other owners... Even though I THOUGHT there was nothing that could be done. I don't know what kind of impact it had on the ultimate decision, but something happened that ended my biggest nightmare!
So thank you for suggesting that! Posted via Mobile Device
