Power and Control
Posted by Ivory at 6:07 PM
I don't understand my co worker who is supposed to be training me, but leaves out just enough information so she can swoop in and 'save the day'. Makes me want to gag. She's getting frustrated because I am a good self-starter and have found ways to bypass her and get the info other places.
She was the only one of our kind in the office until I came along... with a degree. She is afraid to be second best, afraid of losing, afraid of looking uneducated.
I don't like to play office games, I don't do political games well, I will gladly give over 'power' to her, which I did, but she beats me up anyway (verbally, of course). The really weird thing is that I find many ways to like her (personally) and no way can I work with such a nut. She is OCD and repeats, repeats, repeats until I want to choke her. She spends all day re-doing the same single sheet of information because a comma is missing (or there) or the margin isn't just right, or the darn boxes are bold or thick enough. AAAAAahhhhhh!
I'd go find another job, but I've looked, there aren't any. I even have tried talking to my supervisor (and again today) and I get no where. I'm so angry and I wish I could find another job.
