I've lost a lot of time the last few days...
Everything in my life has been kicked around lately. On top of CoWorker Woes, I now have a Lead Worker on my case. Well, and now she has the supervisor on my case as well. It all started when they hired me a couple of years ago...
I responded to a job advertised via our local 'Unemployment Dept' (for lack of real word and for anonymity). I was interviewed for the job and at that time was told there would be some 'other duties', as well. Okay. Well I took the job and after all the paperwork was done, all the UAs, the background checks, and key cards and entry codes in place (2 days into it) I was told that they actually didn't need what that job was, they needed something else and so they hired me because that was the only job opening they had.
BUT (there's always a BUT), because it is a govt. agency and they filled the position, they now obligated me to do that job - on top of the job they hired me for. There is no physical way for me to do that. I can't make them understand that and I've been bustin' but buns for the last 6 months trying to perform miracles. It's not working.
This group of people I work with have no boundaries and very few morals. (Yes, it's still a govt agency). Now, I'm getting emails from my manager that she is disappointed in me because I got into an argument with a lead worker. I am paid the least, have one of the 2 jobs considered the butthole of the dog, and I'm the only one with a degree. The most anyone has is a few classes of college. Their lexicons consist of only a few choice words such as, s*7t; f^(k; --- you get it, I suppose. Another worker and I have asked that they not use such awful language and they insist they 'need' to vent. No they don't, not that way.
I told my lead worker that I had some forms at home so I scanned them in and added form fields to make it easier/quicker in filling them out. She immediately said, "Well, that's why you're not getting your work done. You're messing with those forms." I told her that I did them at home, so she told the boss and now I'm in trouble for doing them at home.
I'm feeling singled out and picked on. I don't know what to do. I always find myself in these situations. I probably shouldn't admit this but when I parked the car in the garage, I closed the door and left it running. I'm backed into a corner, there are not other jobs, no one to help me, and I'm so afraid. I'm so afraid. Just afraid.
