Confronting The Beast

 Hi friends, hope you all are having a good Saturday.I am considering playing hooky from work Monday, I am just so pissed about the thing letting Lydia have this week off , but I get denied, what crap !!!!!!! I am going to confront the beast when I go back to work Wednesday since I am off Tuesday and say "Yeah I could'nt help but notice that Lydia got this week off" I am dying to know what her answer will be, probably some smart - ass remark, this is a big step for me because I have trouble confronting people, call it a flaw if you will, guess I have been stepped on in the past by some, I have trouble defending myself, always have, always will, Anyhow hope you all have a good Sunday, I will be seeing my friend Debbi tommorow, that should be fun, I Love You All Lisa XOXO

be careful....she is your boss and she can cause you alot of misery if she wants to retaliate. She had NO right to deny you the week off after saying NO ONE would be off but she may do whatever she wants....also, this other chick may have asked off before you. At my employer, it is first come to who gets off.....i ask off a full year ahead of time to get my vacations. I know all employers are different. I love you so and wish you had not gotten screwed out of your time off.

(((((((((((((((((((((LISA))))))))))))))))))))I know you are mad,you have a right to ask,even if the other coworker had ased before,the beast still shouldnt say that everyone cant have off,no matter what.It isnt fair,if the beast tell everyone they cant have off,than tell someone else they can.Even if the person ma have asked bearlyer,it still not right.I pray it all goes well.

I do hope she doesn't fire you but you should be able to speak up for yourself.  I don't do confrontations well or at all and that's why I let so much crap just happen.  I freakin' have panic attacks when it comes to confrontations.  That isn't good on the job, believe me.  

Be careful but know you'll have your dignity and self respect if you don't let people walk all over you,

I really think you should cuntfront her...or them, she's like two in one, right?
I love you.
Donna !

dca721 said...

I do think you should ask her about it.
She cannot fire you for that.
Try to stand up for yourself so that it doesn't happen again.
F-ing Beastbitch.

Rehearse exactly what you're going to say.  I'd recommend being nice at first -- you'd be surprised at how that can throw people off.

I have to agree with the nice part. I would be like "Man it sure was nice of you to give her this week off I wonder what she is doing this week."

Yes, if you were my daughter I would be shaking you right now and telling you stand up for yourself. Honestly IF people know that they can walk on you they will. It's fine to be nice, but WHEN you have to you need to be strong. I mean what the hell is she gonna do fire you.. oh well IF she does that I'd tell her to shove it where the sun don't shine and I wouldn't be nice about it at all.
So glad you're getting out and going with your friend. I think you really need that to take her mind off things. Have fun and don't let that beast ruin your day with your friend think and talk about other things get your mind off it. You really need that.
I wish you were going to Vegas because I do believe you need time away from work, your place and that town. Wish I was closer I'd fix you up some drinks and you wouldn't remember what was wrong LOL.
Take care, Chrissie

Just be careful to not get insubordinate.  Who knows, maybe she is looking for an excuse to get rid of some people.  Have a good Sunday.

First off, I miss you!
Okay, I have caught up on your journals.  So, when they had the meeting at 6 am, that is when you should have brought up some issues, in a nice professional way that way beast is on the spot. Secondly YOU MUST CONFRONT her about the reason the other girl got off that week when she made it clear EVERYONE would get off. After that, go directly above her and say that you must meet IN PERSON meeting about what is going on. Say no more then you have to , to the person above her unless it is face to face.  Honestly I would start looking for another job then give them no notice what so ever.
I'm sorry this bullshit is happening to you. God it's good I don't live there, I would give that beast a day of hell and more to come as a customer undercover :)

I think you're making the right decision to confront her!

do you have Tuesday off?

Lisa, confronting people is a scary thing.  But  it is necessary or you will let this eat at you.  Usually things aren't as bad as they seem.  Good luck, I'll say a special bravery prayer for you!  love, rose

Lisa, it's good not to be scared about confronting things or people that may do you wrong.  You haven't liked this chick from the beginning and it has upset you every day.  I would think twice about confronting her over this because it will not do you any good and all it could do is cause trouble for you.  Just a little advice.  Luv ya!

I hate confronting people also.  I also take days off occasionally which I call "mental health" days, days where you just need to put yourself together again.  Hope you get the work situation solved.  HUGS  Chris

I will send you via internet mind vibes all my mojo for confronting others!  I don't have a problem with it, and while I don't go around looking to confront others, I will if something is bugging me.

Hang in there, Lisa...

You have to pick your words wisely. This could go bad if you don't.
Managers are funny like that, because your inquiring about someone elses vacation and not your own.
good luck
