A few weeks ago we were forced to move at work to two small offices. We were given 1/3 of the space that we used to have. Each room is a bit smaller than my bedroom. Anyways, we were supposedly a group of programmers who are meant to work in one room together on various projects. However, the split ended up really bad. Horribly bad. It became more evident as my ex-boss left and we were bestowed with another manager who doesn’t understand what management means.
I haven’t been doing any work. Does my idiotic new manager care? Last time I saw him was sometimes last week. He was asking for something. Well, does he even know or bother to ask about our work? Nop. And I am not going to even tell him. Till this day I refuse to go to his office or even talk to him unless he addresses me and comes upstairs him self. I don’t have time to play suck up. I hate him so much because he took my position. He is supposedly more qualified for a position he never applied for. That’s what happened 2 months ago. Although I didn’t want to talk about it till I left this place, but I decided to do so anyways. It seems I am cursed to stay here till I die! So, he was hired without anyone’s knowledge because he was best friends with the manager of the place. Although I officially applied for the position stating the obvious that I have been here 6 years, and I can do it! However, NO! I work in a high school. Not the administration of a high school, but a group of teenagers and I am not part of the clique! How can a manager be hired with no interview or notification? After what happened and my utter devastation of the injustice of this horrible place that I work in, I decided to give the guy a chance. I watched his every move. Saw how he conducted “management,” and so far, nothing. Nothing that impressed me or made me say, “he is not a bad leader.”
So my head grew bigger and I became hateful of this place. So hateful, that I cannot even stand my co-workers that much either. Although they didn’t do anything, I just refuse to even look at them sometimes or talk to them. It’s not like they care, and the split is so obvious that I feel that I work in a separate group that constitutes me and them. It got to the point where I don’t want to even have lunch with them anymore because I can’t stand listening to their stories or be around them. I just quit caring. I have been at this job for too long and my departure is long over due.
However, what can I do? My sanity has been maintained by seeing my ex-boss every week and having some hope that I can leave this horrible place too. Yet, that hasn’t worked out and most of the jobs that I applied for and interviewed for I was told I was overqualified after. What am I to do? Overqualified? That’s how bad my life has gotten. I cannot even manage to get a simple technology/software job. I am overqualified!
I think I am even over qualified to have a blog. Maybe I should have my own sitcom. My life surely made me crazy and people need to be amused by the comedic drama.
